I must admit that improv comedy really is not my thing but I enjoyed this show. It was 100% family appropriate but still fun for teens. Serviced minded, professional support staff. We really felt like they were happy to have us there. I was a bit concerned about walking to/from the location but it was fine. Performers were funny and... More

This truly is the "Second City" of our times....young artists honing their skills...and doing an excellent job. the price is modest compared to ANYTHING else you plan to do in New York...so you really must go and enjoy (and support) the emerging stars of tomorrow!

We took four teenagers--ages 17, 17, 16, and 13. They loved the show. It was actually their favorite part of the NYC trip. We did Broadway, bus tours, Central Park, etc. It's a small, very personal venue. Lots of fun. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

just went with my 14yo daughter. We both laughed the whole time. Clean and funny (both the humor, and the club itself). We'll definitely be back!

Been 3 times now in the past 4 years. Love NYC! And This has been a great hit with 3 girls 12 -19. The Improv teams are intelligent, quick on their feet, and funny. The show and games are different each time. We bring some of the fun home since one of my girls is a musical theater person. Played... More

Small theatre which was perfect. Very funny show and would highly recommend it. Small entrance fee and worth every cent and more.

Great comedy show for the whole family! We were visiting the city with our 2 college age kids. Got tickets to the early 7:30 pm show and we all enjoyed a good laugh! The show was fast paced and the game show format was very entertaining! Very affordable price too!

I had the pleasure of visiting the National Comedy Club with my husband and 17 year old son last weekend...I couldn't have been more impressed. The show was amazing and hilarious; we all laughed non-stop. Not only that it was "clean" enough for any age. I highly recommend this great show!!

Wonderful show. The actors were quick, funny and worked clean. I recommend this show for anyone with a sense of humor who wants to laugh, have fun, not worry about taking the kids, the parents or the grandparents -- there is nothing offensive -- and doesn't want to spend an arm and a leg
