From the smooth check-in at the front, to the excellent service throughout the night, I can't say enough good things. Whereas usually during a night of comedy, there might be one or two less-than-funny comics, the host and the comedians were all outstanding. We enjoyed the food (burger cooked to your pref - love this! plus all the other usual... More

This is a decent comedy club located in a nice area of NYC. They cram you in and then charge you premium prices for small cocktails. The "Comedy Cellar" is much better ( yes they cram you in there also, but the there is a great vibe about the place); the "Comedy Cellar" from now on.

We went for a little laugh and we came out with a huge laugh. The drinks were good and the food was Ok for a Comedy club. However, the comedians were extremely funny including the host who could have been one of the presented comedians also.

I highly recommend an evening at the Gotham. We have been there numerous times and it never disappoints! And Mike Reisman is hilarious!

Perhaps this is standard practice in NY, however I really do not like having to order the at least 2 drinks per person. Our server was lovely and did not mind replacing my wine (Merlot) which was un drinkable. The Pinot noir was OK. We had a light snack which was fine. It would have been nice to have been... More

Went with my wife and we had tickets, the staff was extremely courteous. Drink came quick and food is bar food but edible. If you come to NYC you must visit the Gotham CC. Neatly priced and very accessible from the subway.

Fun night. 2 drink minimum plus tickets... bring your wallets! For those of you not from the NYC area be prepared for "late night" talent.

This was the second time we went to an early "New Talent" show. Both times the show was very funny. There were about 6 - 8 different comics. Each funnier than the one before! Cover charge and a two drink minimum, but the prices were reasonable. Found a coupon code online for the first show we went to (June 2014),... More

I went to watch Trevor Noah in July with a group of friends and the venue was top notch. The only thing I wasn't too fond of was being forced to buy at least 2 drinks while I was there. They did do a good job about warning us when we bought our tickets online, but still, I'd rather it... More
