We bought tickets from a guy by the rockefeller building.. My girlfriend was a bit sceptic but she laughed all night. The host was the funniest ever, and only 1 of all comedians was hilarious. I would totally go there again.

I live in New York and my friends were visiting and wanted to go to a comedy club. We found New York Comedy club had a comic that my friend was really into performing that Saturday night, so we went to check it out. The club was packed, had a cool vibe, an engaged crowd and an intimate feel. Definitely... More

Ticket guy in Times Square makes it sound like a great deal when he lowers the price for the tickets and yes you know you have to buy two drinks for everyone, soft drinks for the teens are ok. What you don't know is that the minimum cost for those two soft drinks are $20. So very costly night out,... More

Tonia, We are so sorry to you didn't have as good of experience as possible. We actually pride ourselves on one of the few comedy clubs that don't charge outrageous prices in NYC. Most clubs typically will charge $12 just for a beer and $8 for a soda along with $25 for cover charge.. so what we do instead to... More

We were approached by Keith in Times Square within a couple of hours of arriving in NYC for the 1st time. He was very likeable and funny and convinced us that we should give the show a try. I'm glad we did! The comedians were all very funny. Prices were great compared to other NYC entertainment venues and the comedy... More

Met Keith in Times Square, he convinced us to go to the Comedy Club during our stay in NYC. So glad we met him!!! Brilliant night! All the acts were excellent, and the service was just as good. Perfect way to finish our visit to NYC, would absolutley recommend!

Horrible horrible place. The Comedians aré good. However, the SERVICE is terrible. I Bought tickets for a specific date and time but people still couldn't get in. They over sold tickets online, passed the capacity. Waitress were extremely rude. I will NOT recommend this place.

Had a great time at New York Comedy Club last night! Funny, funny show with about 6 comedians. The host was really funny, too! Tickets aren't expensive, but know there is a 2 drink minimum (I think most comedy clubs have the same policy). They offer a non-alcoholic deal too. Small place, but that makes the show even better.
