I've been to Helium about a dozen times since first discovering it in 2011. It's easily the closest place to my town for seeing real headline acts on tour, the food and drink options are a notch above chicken wings and fries (get the hummus plate for a light treat), and the general layout is we-thought and practical for the...

Our seats were in a corner and no one told the comedians they had to come out more on stage so we could see them. We only liked one out of the 3 comedians. The MC we thought was funnier than the headline guy/ Josh Blue We went 7/25/15. We actually ended up leaving before the show was over.

We had a great time at Helium this past Saturday. The staff made it easy to get tickets and were very helpful on the phone as we were deciding what kind of tickets to get. Take my advice and go for the reserved seating, its one less thing to worry about as you plan your evening. The show itself was... More

I have always liked a good night of comedy out with friends but the ambiance here needs work. This place could totally rock but I get the impression that they don't put much money back into decor. We had a fun time and will be back but I don't expect much inside to change. It s been years odc waiting... More

Grabbed a couple tickets online for a 7:30 show this past Saturday. When booking pay the 50 cents and print your tickets at home saves time and hassel for yourself. It was easy to get to there is a parking lot across the street but we took the train in so can't tell you much more about that. We walked... More

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
