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!

Bought a VIP ticket, didn't really get a VIP treatment but the comedians made up for it. I had a very big laugh. I would recommend going here over going to a play or so if you want to have a FUN TIME.

All the so called comedians on 1st of November show varied from pooring to discraceful. (My boyfriend nearly fell in sleep during one act). I would never ever recommend this club even to my worse enemy. I have never left any club by feeling so angry; there were constant offensive jokes about gays and women with a lot of use... More

Heard lots of praises and a few bad reviews about this Club. Still, we had some friends in town and they wanted to go so we went. It was remarkably FUN and FUNNY. The setting is more like a nightclub than a comedy club. We had a booth which surprised and pleased us. The comedians were funny (apart from one... 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.
