we visited the club on fairly short notice on a Saturday night. Called about 5 to make reservations for the 8 pm show and showed up at 7:30 pm as they recommended and were escorted to a great table center room. We didn't have a problem finding free parking nearby and there are plenty of places to eat. We went... More

Went for the Gotham Comedy Live taping for AXS TV. It's from 10-11 and features a lot of great talent. The service is good but it is a lot of fun. I haven't been on other days but if you're looking for a great time on a Thursday night then this is a place to check out.

A very funny night of comedy! 1.5 hours of fun in a well set up club. The headline act was supported by two other comedians and quite reasonably priced too with the only stipulation is you have to purchase at least two drinks per person. Why this extra cost is not factored into the ticket price escapes me? Drinks were... More

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
