Crass and Overpriced

Perhaps we visited on a bad night, but one comic was worse than the other. Drinks ran about $16 each with a two drink minimum per person. Rodney would be disappointed.

The guy pictured below told my teenage daughter and I that this was a clean, tv appropriate comedy show for kids 12 and up. I spent $40 for two tickets for a show you can buy $4 tickets for online and then another $40 on the required two drinks a person. Yes, that's 10 sodas. Shame on me for being... More

During a girls trip to NYC, we wanted to go to some shows. While walking through Times Square, we happened upon John D who was selling tickets to Dangerfield's Comedy Club. He totally misled us on who the headliners were and that drinks were reasonable. All lies. The comedians were funny but no known names and the drinks were very... More

We were approached by a friendly man in Times Square who sold us the tickets. He advised us that there would be well known comedians, including big names such as Brian McFadden (involved with the well known show Family Guy). His original price was $40 for 2 people. But he offered us a sweetener and we ended up getting the... More

We decided to go to an 8:00 show, which might have been our first mistake. They sat us in an awkward corner while 70s top hits were playing... since we were advised to get there 30 min early, it was a lot of 70s music to sit through. 2 drink minimum plus tax and 15% tip, so we started with...

When we arrived for the show we were met by "tickets"..... "is this the comedy gig?" i asked, "tickets" we were told again, gave them... More

The comedians were excellent! The place was small but perfect. I liked everything but the overpriced food :( Excluding cover and the 2 drinks minimum plus one dish & a side it was $90! I will definitely go again--minus the food and stick to juice!

We decided the last minute to go to a comedy night . I rang to book and they advised you can book online for cheaper so we did that. Seated right near the stage and felt comfortable being that close . The 4 comedians and host were the funniest people we have seen for a long time . Would thoroughly... More

On Times Square someone sold us tickets for this stand-up comedy club. We were a bit sceptical, when we went to this place. It looked a bit shabby when we came in. Only 16 other visitors came in the club and we were very curious what the evening would bring us. But we had a very good laugh and had... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
