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

We had dinner in Harvard Square and were looking for something to do afterwards. We found this place above the Hong Kong restaurant. $12 pp to get in and no drink minimum. It's small and dark like most comedy clubs--part of the atmosphere. There were about 8 comedians., all in their 20s and local. All were great but one. The... More

Boston is a great city to see stand-up comedy, second only to New York and Los Angeles in the U.S. The Comedy Studio in Cambridge is one of the best, if not the best, places to check out up-and-coming as well as established comedians when you're in town. Tickets can be had for $10 - 12 U.S. and you can... More

We always have a great time at the Comedy Studio. Rick Jenkins is a great host, and the talent is very high caliber. Tonight we saw eight comedians and they were all very funny. Best to have reservations on the weekends. I like the fact that you don't have to be 21 to get in, so I can bring a... More

We went to a show a few Sundays ago. There was a lineup of about twelve comedians over a two hour period - from 8pm to 10pm. For the $8 admission, it was a fun night! Some comedians were just ok but a few were quite funny. You can order drinks throughout the show. You can even order food from... More

We had a fun night listening to ten comedians along with host Sean Sullivan. It was a great night out and all of my family enjoyed and would go again. Tickets only $8 with small online service fee. My only complaint was waiter service was never given to us the entire show. No one asked if we wanted a drink... More

I feel bad writing this, but the comedians were just not funny. It's very cheap, but I still found myself wishing I was someplace else. However, I could see it being fun with a bunch of friends and a few drinks on board. Everyone tried hard!

Check out this place, above the Hong Kong restaurant in Harvard Square. Ticket prices are very reasonable, only $8 on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and then $12 on Tuesdays,Fridays and Saturdays. They have a group of comics onstage, one after the other, and you're sure to like at least one (or more) of them. And for $8-12, you really can't... More
