We decided to go here at the last minute. We went on a Wednesday evening 8pm show. The place was empty, only about 10 tables occupied. We had a fun evening with a lot of laughs. The comedians were great. Go & laugh.

We had to make advance reservations to see a special Yannis Pappas, in the past you could make reservation over the phone and just pay at the event, now they make you book in advance for events, which means you have to pay additional fees on laughstub. Having said that, the show was worth every last penny, Mr. Pappas is... More

After seeing the sign outside I decided to go in and stay for a show. I couldn't stop laughing throughout the entire show. They had terrific comedians ,great service and affordable prices. I had a blast and Jess (one of the servers) was friendly,knowledgeable and happy all the time. Great staff. I will be back for sure.

We had a great evening here. Some really good comics. It is inexpensive to get in but then you have to purchase two drinks and they are a little expensive but no more then most bars in the city. Definatly worth a visit in you want something a little different for an evening

We've visited this place last year and laughed so much decided to come back on this trip. There was no "headliner" and it was billed as "Comedy Allstars". There were 5 comedians and a very funny MC that provided another 2 hours of laughs. Don't expect much from the food or service staff, but that seems typical of other comedy... More

We had a great time. The comedians were really generous with their time and chatted and took photos with the patrons after the show. The service was great. We went to the latest show and I think there was 12 tables for an audience. This make it kinda fun cause they interacted with us, but it was a little weird... More

We booked tickets in advance online- We were pleased with this NYC experience. This comedy club is small, personable and very clean. Customer service was very friendly and competent. You are required a 2 item purchase per person but that wasn't a big deal for us. Joe DerRosa was the main comedian. He and the other comedians were tastefully funny.... More

Accused of videotaping when I was trying to get a nice pic... understood the concern, just left a bad taste when the man didn't take 2 seconds to see what I was doing before interrupting me

This is a local venue for me and the bride but we do not go all the time. We had to go this past weekend because one of the best comedians out there was performing. Jon Hefferon is such a talented and funny guy you must see him. He doesn't need cursing to make a point because his real life... 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.
