Cannot say enough to recommend this club. We come here at least one a month and we are never disappointed. We do not know most of the comedians we see, but the headliners are always top notch. If you want funny - this is the place to go! The staff are always friendly & helpful. Shout out to our fave... More

We have been here twicew recently and really like it. The place is nice and large room but intimate. They are good at what they do and that is put on funny comiedy shows. They have a nice mix of headliners and local talent. Make sure you order tix in advance as it can sell out on certain shows. Arrive... More

Helium has great staff, 2 bars, great drinks. The comedians, local and celebs were excellent. Get preferred seating to be closer to the stage but all the seats seemed good. The table were a little small especially if you have more than 2 people. I didn't have food but others around me seemed to have enjoyed it. Location is easy... More

The location had some good points and some bad points. First the web site was a bit difficult to use but with a little work I... More

Been several times and Ive heard several comics on their podcasts mention Helium in Philly to be a fav place to perform. Overall, highly recommend with little to complain of. The parking garage is literally next door - drop off keys at parking entrance and can be inside club within 2 minutes. The staff has always been friendly and courteous.... More

Went here with my wife. Nice size club. Good layout. Seating was not too crammed together like some comedy clubs. MC was OK. First act was from Phili. He was great. Headliner was just OK, but that is a matter of taste. We were able to park for free (after 10:00 pm) on street, one block away on a Friday... More

I haven't been to a comedy club since the late 80s so I really wasn't sure what to expect. I think the main thing that makes a trip to one amazing is the talent, the rest is just infrastructure. The staff are friendly, the wait staff really work hard to keep the drinks flowing during the show. The seating is... More

I went on a Tuesday night. It was open mic night so anyone could get up on stage if they wanted to. You can just go as a spectator too. It is only $5 to get in for almost 2 hours of comedy.The people who got up on stage were pretty funny! I thought some of them were better than... More

We have been to Helium many times and have seen a wide range of comedians. Last night we saw Bert Kreischer and he is probably one of the funniest guys we have ever seen. Not all shows at Helium are this good, but they consistently get well-know headliners and offer fantastic value for money with most tickets between $20-$30 per... More

I liked this club. The service was really good. One of the best service i had at a comedy club. It was clean. The show was good. It's hard to review these sorts of things because every show will be so different.
