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

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

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
