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

What a scam!!! I just left the Comic Strip Live after they tried to rip me off. Upon arrival I was told that everyone has to buy two items so while I waited in the bar area (the same bar that serves the club) to enter, I bought some of their crappy over priced popcorn and an Stella, two items....

I join other reviewers in my enthusiasm for this club. Everything about this place was spot on. Intimate setting (so small that no member of the audience could hide from the performers), several excellent performers (nearly every one was stellar), and everyone in the audience was clearly enjoying the show. Some things you need to know up front: the show... More
