WE had a front row table. It was a sold out performance. It was a little pricey, but it was a treat.

We’ve been here a few times. The comedians are hilarious. We’ve seen a few top notch comedians here. The seating process is a disorganized disaster. They make you line up and wait especially if you are attending the later show. There are several bars where you can wait but there is just not enough seating so you end up standing.... More

The comedians were hilarious and we really enjoyed the show. However, the venue really needs some improvement. The seating process was disorderly. Everyone just jammed up against the door, and completely disregarded any concept of forming a line. No one seemed to be present to give direction or keep order. I paid the extra $10 per seat for reserved seating,... More

I booked a private party for a group of friends and I last Saturday to see Dov Davidoff. For most of us, this was our first experience at a comedy club. If you have a group of 10 or more, I highly recommend doing the package deal! You receive early entrance into the club, a ton of apps, and free... More

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
