If you want to enjoy your night with good beers and laughs, the New York Comedy Club is the place to visit. The comedians know how to entertain the crowd (of 40 people) and make your night unforgettable. If you have any trouble with english, skip it and find somewhere else. Also, It is not (definitely not) a place to... More

Pricey for a week night. Cash only at the door. Room was hot and the seating wasn't comfortable. Two of the comics were pretty funny. The MC just swore for the sake of swearing. Canadian comic-Nathan Macintosh was really good.

I think it's a good night to go if you find cheap tickets online, since the min. 2 drinks per person is the pricey part. The comedics were all funny, I only found 2-3 to be really hysterically "laugh out loud". I like that the host called out on people in the audience who talked during (so keep doing that!)... More

My boyfriend and I attended a show on the 05/12/2015. It was a lot more intimate than expected which we liked, and all comedians were brilliant and very funny! The 2 drinks minimum was mentioned very clearly to us as soon as we arrived so we had no issues there. The only thing that was a slight negative was the... More

Bought tickets in times square which were valid for any night and we ended up going on a Sunday. We found the club which was much smaller than anticipated and went inside for some pre gig drinks. We were then led to the main room where the acts would be performing and were seated at the front. Including the host... More

If you buy a ticket from the street expect it to have small print So after some easy negotiation from $50 a ticket to $20 for two tickets ( always play the student ) even if in your 40s So it does state minimum purchase of drinks - what is not clear is it will be a minimum charge of... More

Tony, It is extremely unfortunate that you decided to not partake in the night and enjoy what would have been a very fun show. However, there seems to be some confusion on your end. There is ABSOLUTELY NO $40 charge at the club. There is however a a standard 2 drink minimum which every comedy club in the country implements... More

Firstly, I had a good night. Lots of laughs, lots of acts. We were sold our ticket in Times Square from a very pleasant seller. The walk was long though to get there which was unfortunate.
