We saw one good show about 9 years ago and have gone back about 5 or 6 times to be disappointed each time. We love comedy so we keep giving it another chance. No more. This past weekend we went to see Tim Meadows. He was so bad we left during his "act". He actually had no act. The warm... More

I have been to Helium several times for a variety of shows. I can honestly say that I've never had a good experience. One expects an entertainment venue to be overpriced, but at least concert and sports stadiums don't force patrons to purchase at least two items from wait staff that is, at best, confused and overwhelmed. The room setup... More

The comedians are consistently good! I've been there a few times and they are often big names you've heard on Comedy Radio or seen on Comedy Central. The online ticket surcharge is a little high and there is a 2 drink minimum, but that's pretty typical anymore. The servers are really friendly, though the one hostess gave my group of... More

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

My wife and I did a long weekend getaway to Philly and went to the Helium Comedy club. We had a great time the comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, was hilarious. LOVED Loved Loved his show. 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
