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

Bought tickets off a hustler at Tmies Square only because we had bought tickets for the Broadway Comedy Club & had a great time. The comedians were first rate, excellent and very professional but the venue smelled like piss and had incerdibly lously service. It took 20 minutes before anyone came & took our drink order (BTW, I'm OK with... More

We were approached by a charming man in Times Square and, wanting to see a New York comedy show, we bought the $40 ticket for two. It was only afterwards, while Googling the venue, that we discovered that for Monday through Thursday the website offers free cover tickets! And even then the place is sparsely populated so you are very... More

I've been to many of the $5 shows around times square and I can't say I was expecting much here but the comedians were horrendous. Hack jokes from 15 years ago, my goodness. The beers we ordered were $11 each, yeah you read that right. Really crappy experience I wouldn't recommend bothering with this club at all.

On the night I went a couple of the comedians were very funny, two were just ok, one was not funny at all. Compared to other comedy clubs in New York that are much better, this place is very expensive. $20 for cover plus 2 drink minimum and 1 beer is $10. The next night I went to what is... More

We attended the show on complementary tickets from the house comedian on "The View". With no investment, we thought we'd give it a shot. The comedians were a mixed bag. A couple were really funny, the others not so much. The drink quality was OK, the prices high for a 2 drink minimum. Don't order food - overpriced, bland, microwaved... More

Comedy was mixed..som very crass comedians. I felt apologetic to the females in the audience as there were some extreme jokes. It's a bit of a dark hole with severely overpriced food and drinks and $25 cover each with a 2 drink minimum.

the 4 comedians and host comedian were great. the drink prices were expensive and not much to write home about. Everyone was very friendly and the host Q-Keith Anthony helped us out of towners hail a cab in the pouring rain since we were clueless as to how to get one to stop for us. thanks

Not the best stand-up I've seen, some where quite funny though so had some good laughs that night. Don't recommend eating there though! I had been looking forward to some spicy buffalo wings while in NYC but these were far from good! Battered and tasteless...

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.
