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

We were given tickets by a man handing them out in Times Square, so we decided to check it out, and we're glad we did. It's a classic old place w/historic pics on the walls. The standup comedians were hilarious! Like most NY comedy clubs, you are required to buy two drinks per person--the drinks average about $12/each (even for... More

I personally love this place. If you want a decently priced fun night out in the East side of NYC then yes, expect to pay some money, however, you can easily go as a couple and end up spending less then 35 dollars total on these shows. Not sure why you would buy tickets in the first place whoever is... More

We bought tickets from a guy in Times Square as the deal and the spiel seemed good; luckily we were fore-warned about the drink prices. Dangerfield's is fine in itself as a venue - seating, your own table, subdued lighting but call that comedy???? We went to the 8.30 show on April 28th - I was shocked at the racist,... More

Me and my wife planned a trip to New York City. We really wanted to go to a comedy club, and our hotel concierge had recommend us to buy tickets from a site Best Comedy Tickets. We didn't know which club to choose, so we bought tickets for Dangerfield's We decided because we enjoyed his movies growing up. Might as... More

We went here on 18/2/14. We were sold VIP tickets by one of the local Times Square touts. As it was New York comedy week we were promised Lee Evans and the voice of Peter Griffin from family guy(can't remember his real name) instead we got some of the worst comedians I have ever seen!! A complete Con. Drinks were... More
