It's crazy to see some of these reviews?? I don't know how you can argue getting into a comedy club in NYC for $10 each from a promotion and get a chance to see a guy like Jay Pharoah?? All comedy clubs have drink minimums so hearing people complain about that is silly.. if you are gonna complain about that... More

We bought a 2-person pass for $20, and got an extra one free (from a guy in Times Square), so we basically paid $5 per person. No risk, but we weren't expecting much. The two-drink minimum wasn't a total rip-off either. We had never been to a comedy club in New York, certainly not one you buy tickets for from... More

Such a waste of money! Comedians weren't even funny, didn't get the audience involved enough and if the audience said anything for a laugh or reaction they didn't find it funny and started to get annoyed! Limited drink choices and they where all expensive! Not a great night at all. Yawned through most of it! Disappointing as I love comedy... More

First time in NY and were sold two tickets to the 11pm show on Valentines nights. In short it was the least humorous 90 minutes of my life. In fact it wasn't as though the jokes weren't funny, l don't think the 6 or 7 comics even told any. I don't think anything was lost in UK/US humour translation, it... More

My wife and I bought tickets at time square for 30 dollars. Since we already went to a comedy show at Gotham's (which I can highly recommend!), we were up for another one. Not knowing it would become a real disaster! First of all we got a 'warm' welcome: 'go eat some pizza and come back a few minutes before... More

My husband and I bought tickets for the comedy club when we were wandering through Times Square on our first night in NY. We wouldn't usually buy tickets from a tout - I blame the jet lag! The tout had a really good sales pitch, so we thought why not?! We paid $20 for two of us, which was probably... More

I'll make this simple - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE! We had only four evenings to spend in NYC and I'm SO disappointed we wasted one here. SUPER OVERPRICED drinks, CRAPPY jokes (2 of 6 comedians were funny... If I'm going to see comedy, my cheeks should hurt from laughing so hard) and a total crap night.... More

I attended recently...No opulent fancy decor here....It is a small intimate comedy club where any seat is close to the action...Poor guy next to me was mercilessly picked on by the comedians however it was good fun , everybody had a good time . Could use a little more selection of food but the drinks were strong and the comics... More

We, as everyone else on this thread, bought our tickets from a guy in Times Square at $10 each. He was totally honest and said we would need to spend $20 each on drinks....not a problem - we probably would have spent a whole lot more if we had just gone out to bars. The comedians were all very funny... More
