I went here with my husband and we watched Bill Bellamy. He was absolutely hilarious. The guy who warmed up the crowd had me in stitches. Would defiantly visit again.

Always check the programme for this comedy club if you're going to be in NYC. You could get seriously lucky. The Late Night Writers night featured the writers form he top late night TV shows - we left with aching jaws and bellies from laughing so hard. Highly recommend!

My 2 college age boys and I had a really enjoyable evening here. The tickets were reasonably priced-app $22/person. The comedians were actually FUNNY And besides the featured comic, there were 2 "warm up" comics who did their piece before hand. The venue is small, so all of the seats are good. There is a 2 drink minimum per person.... More

Gotham comedy club just had a new talent night where the new comics were from Harvard University. They were terrific. The venue was great; nice small atmosphere, friendly staff and the two drink minimum was not a bother. The emcee moved things along and kept the interludes funny. Really amazed at the talent they assembled for a weeknight. The crowd... More

I didn't get to see any celebrity comics, but maybe I saw a future celeb. There have been many stars that have performed at this club and that adds to the appeal of going to Gotham Comedy Club. The comics that perform are funny (not all of them) and if you sit close to the stage, don't get too embarrassed... More

Had such a great time. We went as a group of five. The tables are all pre booked when you buy tickets and the hostess service was great. I loved that they took us to a set table. So no pushing and scrambling for tables. Wait staff were prompt. Two drink minimum was odd. The host comedian Jabron (?) was... More

We came here on a tapping night.. which means you have to keep clapping for every intro... Comedians were funny.. the place is clean.. spacious and you get a good view wherever you sit. Over priced drinks off course...

On April 23, I went to Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan, NYC. Went to see the very funny comedian Cristela Alonzo. The place was great, my girlfriend and I did not have to wait long to get our seats. Had a strong Vodka drink and Shelly one of those girlie drinks as we waited for the show and my yummy... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
