This is definitely the best comedy club we've ever been to! We purchased our tickets on line a few days before the show. It should be noted that their is a 2 drink minimum per ticket. The seating is great....not a bad seat in the house!

We had tickets, purchased in advance, to the Thursday evening live telecast session which starts at 10pm. The ticket price seems quite reasonable, but there is a minimum spend required, per person, once seated at the tables. Nonetheless, it was a fun night, and you might even make it onto "public" TV. Check the GCC website for options on other... More

We attended when Trevor Noah was the headliner. Entertainment wise (the host and comedians), we laughed pretty much the entire night. The drinks, although a bit pricey, were good and strong. We didn't try the food, so can't really comment on it, but from what I saw, it looked great. Our only issue with this comedy club is the limited... More

I have been to a about 10 comedy clubs around the east coast and this one was easily the best I went to. I was surprised how roomy it is being in NYC. The service was amazing. Prices were high but I expected that. Great club.

We found the employees to be very accommodating of our special request to have a 2nd table. The comedy show was a great value! The bonus was a surprise appearance by Jerry Seinfeld. We ate a meal as well and enjoyed it. I'd definitely go back when I'm in NYC. We had our 18 yr old with us. One comedian's... More

Couldn't stop laughing. Place is a little cramped but it's not bad and the talent is funny as hell Get discounted tickets online ahead of time but remember there is a two drink minimum (per person)

We went Monday night and it was awesome! It was our last night in NYC, visiting from Seattle for 7 days, and wanted to try something new. First time at a comedy club and had so much fun!!! An excellent show! The check-in guy at the podium was really nice and accommodating. We arrived 10 minutes before the show and... More

My husband knew they were filming the live show that night, so we just walked up and asked about tickets. The girl who got us in was very nice and we were seated right near the stage. The comics were all funny and the crowd was nice. I had gone to a comedy club the previous year on a trip... More

We went on a night when it was on live tv. I was worried because we couldn't get up and the servers couldn't walk around but it turned out great, the servers took care of every one quickly during the breaks and it was a great evening. It had a great price for tickets, the food was a little expensive... More

We saw Deon Cole there. Was a great show an the place is really nice. Prices are kinda high (but I guess they're always in places like this) and there was a two drink minimum. We got good seats at almost the front row, so good view to stage. Don't know how good it is if you sit in the... More
