Went on a Monday night was very quiet apart from the housewives of queens who disrupted the whole show. The comedians were good & staff attentive. cocktails were good but expensive.

We called ahead to get information about the comics for the night, we were given the names of four performers and said there would be a special guest. We bought our tickets online got a discount. When we got to the club it was old, dingy, dark & the tables were very close together. We enjoyed the comics they were... More

Small venue...food average...entertainment varies night to night but after several hectic days it was a pleasant relaxing evening.. check online before you go as there are coupons at their site for free/reduced admission

Greeted by sheer contempt by the by the less than welcoming barman, who demanded that we wait for 5 minutes to have our tickets verified as he proceed to pour 1 drink...all in this seemed strange considering that our party of 2 formed the queue in it's entirety. Nevertheless we waited paitiently despite having a crowd barrier erected in front... More

Sold tickets in times square, were assured they were cheaper than the 30 dollar charge on the door, they weren't, the door price is actually 20. Two drink minimum would be fine if the drinks were a reasonable price, they don't display them on the menu and they have a poor selection. Alcohol helps comedy so why not have your... More

Pros: The MC was awesome and the acts were funny. Cons- not enough seats for our party although we had reservations. We were sitting on top of each other. Drinks are ridiculusly over priced. I ordered the required 2 drink minimum and no food. Tab came out to $100 between me and my husband. No food or extra. Overall we... More

Bought two tix for $20 from a rep in Times Square, seemed a bargain at the time, on reading the reviews seems more the norm, anyhow got there, got a reasonable seat, various acts of varying standards, but overall a reasonable night, the drinks are priced at a silly $11 for a bottle of bud, so they don't sell as...

Bought tickets in Times Square, big mistake. You can get free tickets so don't pay! Our waiter (Chario) was the rudest man I have ever met! He has worked there for 44 years so apparently that gives him the right to treat everyone like rubbish. He ruined my night from the off, had the cheek to overcharge us on drinks,... More

After being ripped off on Times Sq (should have known better) we were subject to the most atrocious, unintelligent, offensive, racist comedy I have ever seen. Not to mention, the outrageous drink prices, accompanied with rude service. Worse experience of NYC, glad the rest of the city makes up for it. STEER CLEAR!

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.
