We went here because we had a referral from one of the comics - so we didn't have to pay a cover charge which is $20/person. The atmosphere is still set in the 1969 motif. There is a 2 drink minimum, but we didn't get waited on until the show started. So, we had waiters walking in front of us... More

I have been here several times over the past 3 years and have enjoyed each visit. However you need to know what to expect. First - you can get discounted admission tickets online. Saves you $30. Second -- this is not a 'family oriented' place, definitely adult content and then some, so it your companion is not up for that,... More

Dangerfields was interesting. There was a lot of good interaction with the crowd by the comedians, as each comedian came up to the stage. The MC kept things rolling. One comedian in particular couldn't get a joke out that wasn't dirty or full of filthy language, and that got old. The waiter who took the stage at the end was... More

We bought tickets from a guy at Times Square. 20$ pr. person and a 2 drinks minimum. That was allright, because we were in for a great and hilarius experience. What a night! Just so funny all the way and we talked about it all the way back to the hotel. I would do this again next time I come... More

We bought tickets from a guy at Times Square. We were promised appearances from some a list celebrities. We weren't expecting much but saw no one that was known to anyone! We paid $40 for 2 people and had to buy 2 drinks each. Like what everyone else said the drinks are overpriced and watered down. I did buy food... More

My friends and I went here over the weekend and I thought it was SO much fun. Was it expensive? Yes, but then again it's NYC. Drinks were $12 but our tickets were $5 so I can't complain about the price. There was an introductory MC and then there were 3 stand-up comedians. Even an old time staff member came... More

BEWARE - they are running a scam there: the coat woman sees a large group of people and she somehow gives one coat ticket less than the number of people in the group, then the most expensive coat evaporates in thin air, and when you start asking about the coat location, they have a crew ready to surround you to...

Average comedy, but the real deal breaker was the overpriced watered down drinks, the 8 mandatory drinks (for 4) came to $135, and there were little if any liquor in any glass. even the mixers were watered down, cranberry, ginger ale, everything was about the same shade of clear. We did intend to eat here, but after the drinks, we... More

This "comedy" club was disappointing all around. Pros: none. Cons: $20 cover per person; 2-drink minimum (they're expensive and watery); food is terrible; the comedy was the worst I've seen. The atmosphere is dated and grimy, and the jokes are either vulgar or nonexistent. There were times when you could hear a pin drop. I read on the Dangerfield's website... More
