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

First time going to Gotham and it was a great one! Went to see Jo Koy and had a blast laughing all night. Location is nice. Tables on the small side and you might have to sit with some strangers but it's all worth it. Only had drinks since its a two drink minimum. Drinks are on the expensive side!

After a long day of sightseeing, we needed a break and some laughs. This place hit both marks nicely. We were seated in the lower section, outer edge, not close enough to the stage to become part of the act! The drinks were reasonably priced and the comedy was really really funny. We especially liked John Heffron, he made us... More

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
