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

Had an excellent Sat night at the Gotham. Tickets were available until the morning of the show, we booked online, a very smooth experience. Theatre style table seating works well with good views from everywhere. Get there early to pick a table of your choice at the door and have a drink in the downstairs bar before the show. Great...

We went on a Monday night when there was no line up but it was the open mic competition for the school. We didn't book tickets and walked in at 9 for the 9:30 show and got a table close to the stage. The floor quickly filled up. There was a cover charge and a two drink minimum, paid at... More

Fun (and funny) night in the Big Apple. We saw John Reep, along with Angelo Lozada, Gina Brillon and Keith Alberstadt. All were hilarious! The theater's set-up was nice - smallish with great views of the stage from everywhere. Service was ok, drinks were pricey, but what the heck. We laughed our heads off.
