I went to the New York Comedy Club a couple of weeks ago with three friends and we had such a great time! It was a longer show than usual because the new owners were celebrating their one year anniversary of owning the business so there were a lot of great comedians we got to see.

We went Saturday night as a last minute night out with friends and ending up seeing a pretty funny line up of comedians. The two drink minimum was a bit pricey, but the online deal for the cover charge made it a reasonably priced night out. The furniture were pretty beat up and the bathroom was borderline disgusting.

Majority of the performances were great!!! Fortunately we got to see Des Beshop...amazing guy! Even got to catch a few jokes with him after the show, absolutely amazing. He's a natural!!!

Comedians were brilliant, kept us entertained the whole evening! It is a 2 drink minimum on top of the price of the ticket, but we didn't mind that... More

We bought 2 tix for comedy club, $20 each, which was fine, however you had to buy a minimum of 2 drinks each plus tips while watching the show. The drinks ranged fbetween $10-$17 , so with tips was another $50 ++ on top of tickets. The show lasted 2 hrs.
