Great comedy, cute club.

Cute clean club. Great service, and good drinks. The comedians are great…and they have started out a lot of stars. So, maybe a performer in your show is on the way up!

Had a great time at this club. It is quite small, with long tables for parties at the front, then a row of tiny tables for couples and singles, and behind that bar stools and more tables. I got a tiny table of my own which was perfect. Great view of the stage. The MC really engaged the audience and... More

This place had free entry with a minimum of two drinks. Which isn't so bad at least you get something for your money. Plus the alcohol will help you get through some of the not so great acts. I wouldn't recommend this for younger teenagers as almost every act glorifies the use of drugs of all sorts. There were at... More

This is an old comedic standby in NYC. I went back recently after a long hiatus and wish I went back sooner. The comedians were off the hook and the drinks were great. I won tickets and plan on going back next month.

Well, I don't think I can repeat all the jokes here, but it was funny. The first presenter was great and also the 2nd and the 3rd. However, I think they were pushing too many comedians at the end. They were rushing to finish and/or shorten their acts, and that stress did take fun out of the acts. Nevertheless, overall... More

We were accosted by one of the ticket sellers in time square and purchased tickets for $15 each when they are $20 at the door and we are glad that we did. They get you in with the spiel of all the great comedians who've worked through this place Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld etc. it doesn't matter we saw a... More

OK, so maybe it's not that great of an idea to take a teenage boy (15) to see this show. And sit in the front row. But what the hell, he already knows the raunchy stuff, and getting picked on by the comics keeps one humble! Seriously, I found some of the comics (I believe there were 6 or 7... More

My partner and I bought tickets from one of the guys on Times Sq ($20 for 2) and made reservations a couple of days later. I thought this was a great night and pretty good value. I think we had around 7 comedians(?) on over a couple of hours. Some great, some not so great (but that's all part of... More

This club did bring a few laughs, but I found it to be very expensive for the amount of laughs. There were plenty of comedians on that night, but only a few were good. The mc really struggled with his job. The drinks were ok, but very expensive. The price to get in was only $15, but till 2 of... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
