Well, we bought our tickets in Times Square from a girl who had helped us get booked into Letterman and Jimmy Fallon last week. We told her we would buy tickets from her this week when our cousins came in for the Holidays. We were in the process of buying them when some woman came up screaming - "don't buy them! it is a scam!" My cousins were here from out of state for the Holidays and wanted to go to a Comedy Club - but this woman wouldn't stop yelling that someone had just told her that the tickets were scams and the Club didn't exist - so, although the comedy club girl insisted they were real and pointed out that the woman herself said she had called the club and confirmed they were real - we got nervous and asked for our money back and she graciously gave it back to us. Then, as we were walking away it occured to us that we had seen her in that same spot, next to the police station in Times Square (no less) for a week. Surely if they were fake tickets - she wouldn't still be in the same spot - we reasoned. She had been so helpful to us last week, and refused to accept a tip for the assistance she gave us - so we felt bad about canceling the sell. We went back - just as she and her teammates seemed to be leaving for the night. She showed us an article in Time Out magazine that recommended their club and the article began by saying to beware the sellers from all "other" clubs. We got six passes for $60. We went to the 9PM show and found out that there were two small amateur rooms with shows (no doubt, the ones the bad reviews are about) and then there is a bigger downstairs room that seats 200-300 people. THAT was the Show we went into (although we almost got sat in the amateur show - which judging by the reviews here - isn't very good). To our GREAT surprise, Jamie Foxx was filming his Comedy Special called Foxx Hole. We were thrilled. All we were told was Comedy Central comedians would be there - no one mentioned this Jamie Foxx Show to us. The Show was dirty and FUNNY. We saw one comedian after another after another. Then, when that taping was over - another show began being filmed for something called Comedy Time and we saw another 6-7 comedians (some of which we readily recognized). There was one comedian that bombed BIG, but the rest ranged from humorous to ridiculously FUNNY. The night was longer than we expected but we laughed a good deal and had many times that we laughed until tears came from our eyes. We already knew that ALL comedy clubs have two drink minimums. (btw, I can't believe how many people here are acting like a 2 drink minimum at a comedy club is a big deal and giving the club low ratings because of it. That is pretty standard at all comedy clubs everywhere). All of our drinks ran between $7 and $8. I don't know who the crazy screaming lady was, but she sure missed one heck of a good show. Note: Right after we bought out tickets we were also approached by someone from another comedy club and were told that this Club didn't exist and that the tickets were fake and a scam. It must be what the competing clubs do to steal sales from this club. Maybe that is why the magazine said to beware all comedy ticket sellers clubs but this one in Times Square. This was the best "darn" fake show in history, then. Yes, it is the no-frills club with the brick wall in the background that you see on shows like Seinfeld and in Standup Comedy Specials... it is a basement club - like several of the major clubs in NYC - but we weren't there for decor - we were there to have some laughs and we had plenty. It turnt out to be a surprisingly good night for us. Yes, we would go again. Best bargain we have had all week. We are taking away one "O" above because they almost sat us in the small amateur showroom by accident and the drink service was a little slow. Happy Holidays.
