I was visiting Philly for the weekend and my friends suggested to come here for Friday night. I'm so glad they suggested it. I had a blast. They ordered tickets online ahead of time, and seems like it was a good thing, because they were turning people away when we arrived. Tickets were $21 which I didn't think was too... More

My friend and I went here on a spur of the moment activity and it was great! Definitely worth the money and lots of fun! Only downfall is that there is a two item minimum per person (food or alcohol).

I remember going to this comedy club about 5 years ago and having the time of our lives. Went there again about 4 years ago and again 2-3 years - had great experiences each time with amazing acts. However, I went here last weekend again and was totally disappointed at the act and the venue itself. There seems to be... More

I am on the Helium Clubs member list. I get emails of upcoming shows. What fun. Park in a lot. They are mean in Philly, they need the ticket revenue! Five dollar mike nights, free tickets for e mail members( free). Two drink minimum but that can be food, or a soda. Pita plate good. Buy some tickets way in... More

I've visited Helium a few times. The venue is average so my rating is dependent on the act. I've been there when they had Rob Schneider and have been there when it is just the up-and-coming stars. The venue is ok but it is wide. Meaning if you are sitting in the "wings" it's hard to see the act.Try to... More

Last Saturday night my husband and I went to Helium Comedy club to see Fortune Feimster. Fortune was very entertaining and engaging and we enjoyed the show as much as we could, which was difficult because of the "house rules". The "house rules" is that each person must purchase 2 items from their menu. I have a very difficult time... More

We pre-booked our tickets, and paid for whatever the small upgrade is. Tickets were inexpensive!!! We had the best seat in the house, couldn't ask for a better spot! Drinks were cheap, service was fantastic! I look forward to seeing more shows!!!!

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
