Terribly overpriced... We went on a Wednesday night having been to another, way better comedy club (stand up New York) and expected the same for this club. So bad. Comedians were not funny.... Might have been a Wednesday night thing. But seriously terrible value. We had the tacos (don't do it) and two drinks each as per the minimum and... More

The location was small and dark and did not have room for too big of a crowd. The comedians where mostly realy funny. Of course there was a few that wheren't that funny, but that's just how it is on the kind of comedy shows. But it was deffinitly worth the money!

One star is being way too generous. Got a ticket from a street seller and then afterwards they told us it was a two drink minimum, which actually turned out to be a 22dollar minimum. Stayed for the first two comedians who weren't great, one was incredibly sexist and the other seemed to favour the word 'retard' a little too... More

I will say I was a little concerned about the reviews because I value trip advisor . . . but the show was at the perfect time for our dinner plans so I decided to go regardless. So Glad I Did. 7 comics in the night and all were good, but one was flat out awesome. Aaron Berg just killed.... More

Debated wether to go or not. Glad we did. Based upon the 1 & 2 star reviews that said it was funny but not celubrious. If you pay $10 per ticket and have 2 buy 2 drinks at approx same price as pubs in the area what's the problem? You would generally have a few drinks any way. We had... More

This was our first trip to New York. We had read about the great comedy and so when the ticket tout offered what appeared to be a good night out we took up the opportunity. We called in advance as instructed to book in. Took the metro. Didn't like the look of the recommended place to eat beforehand so had... More

OK so we ended up buying tickets from a guy on the street and wow! I'm so glad that we did. We went to the 11pm show and did not stop laughing for the entire show. $20 ticket plus a 2 drink minimum seemed reasonable to me. The comedians were great as was the hostess. We went to quite a... More

DO NOT PURCHASE TICKETS FOR THE NEW YORK COMEDY CLUB!!!!!. It's not worth it. My wife and I was approached by a man on Times Square by the name of Brian Demoy. We bought a double ticket for $20. The ticket did state that there's a 2 drink minimum per person. I didnt think to much of this because I... More
