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...

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

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.
