Really good comedy for an extremely affordable price in a unique setting. On the third floor of a Chinese Restaurant. It is a very intimate setting with great comedians. Had a blast!

I almost hate to review this place, since it will make it harder to get tickets. In brief, for less than $15, we go as often as we can for our dose of comedy. On Saturday nights, our favorite, there will be perhaps 8 or 10 comics putting on 10 minutes of material. Some comics are new and feeling their... More

Just when things couldn't get worse than Blue Man Group, we went to the comedy studio - supposedly renowned and deemed the best comedy place in Boston. We went on a "magic show" night. Lucky us!!! It was absolutely bad. I don't think there are any reasonable or polite ways to describe the rubbish that we saw that night, so... More

What a great surprise! We were looking for something to do on a Friday night and happened upon this place. Eight comics lined up, 6 were great acts. Only $12 pp and no pressure to buy food or drinks, unlike other places I've been. Really great friendly atmosphere, crowd was respectful and generous with the laughs. The comedians were varied...male/female/gay/straight/... More

Fairly small venue above a chinese restaurant. However, $10 for two hours of comedy is great. The Thursday night we were there had about 10 different comics performing for about 10 to 15 minutes each. A couple were very good. One was awful. The rest were pretty good. No drink minimum makes this place a real bargain. Location is steps... More

A group of colleagues came with me to The Comedy Studio for their Wednesday "fresh faces" night. Absolutely hilarious, and a fabulous time was had by all.

We went on a Saturday night and purchased tickets in advance for $12/each. Our seats were reserved for us. It was a really fun night full of nine comedians. There were two women and seven men, ranging from young to old and new to seasoned. It was a great location across from Harvard and we laughed all night. Must try!

We have seen quite a few shows here. Always very funny. Great host. Good service on food and drinks (although the food is nothing extra special). Saturday nights are best for the talent.

We went to the location, three flights up the stairs above a Chinese restaurant, with absolutely no knowledge of what awaited us there. Sunday night and it was pretty much SRO already. For parking luck and an actual seat or barstool, don't wait 'til the last minute as we did! It's a dark, murky space where alcohol is served but... More

We went on a Sunday night and the comedy club is in the attic of a Chinese Restaurant across from Harvard U which is funny in itself. Sunday nights are a mix of pro's and amateurs and the host does a great job of keeping the energy going. There were 10 performers and 9 were hilarious. Refreshingly cleaner than most... More
