This is a fun, medium/small comedy club. They have a variety of name acts and also local talent. We went to local 'competition' which was fun. 11 comedians and we filled out score cards. Fast paced, mixed approaches. A lot of fun. The food is pretty good and matches the event well. Drinks are fine and they have a nice... More

Just had a really fun night at the Helium Comedy Club as they were doing their "Portlands Funniest" competition. Being tight on time from another activity, I was in no way interested in lining up way before show time to get good seats, so I opted to "BOOST" for and extra $10 each right when I ordered my tickets so...

A solid hike from the downtown West side, but not unmanageable. I didn't get any food, so I can't review that, but it looked like typical bar fare. Nice variety of cocktails and beers, with prices on par with any other comedy club. They do a thing I haven't seen at a lot of other comedy clubs. They have a... More

Everything was fine minus the drinks. Whatever you do don't order any drinks, other than beer. My wife and I paid $18 for two drinks that tasted like coke and ice. The comedy show was amazing and the venue is good.

Great venue - not a bad seat in the house - small and intimate. Seats for GA were $20! We'd looked at another comedy club that night that was $45....so we were concerned we may have made a poor choice - no sir, the price is right, the food is great and the comedians were on! Their emcee was hilarious,... More

My brother got us all tickets to see Bobby Lee last fall. . It took a little bit a looking around to get parking ahead of time, so keep that in mind. The venue is pretty nice. Nothing too fancy, but also not dirty. I only had beer, so I cannot speak to the quality of cocktails or food. Everyone... More

I've been to two shows this month (Steve-O & Maria Bamford) and had a great time with each. Splurge for reserved seating if you possibly can. Much better seating and you won't have to wait in line (which is not for the claustrophobic). Drinks and service are pretty good. Venue is clean, hosts are funny. I've been to a number... More

I love Helium Comedy Club! Cannot think of a better way to spend my entertainment dollar than seeing top, nationally-acclaimed comedians in a well-run, local venue. The only complaint that I ever had with Helium was how poorly their website was designed (not mobile-friendly at all), but they have fixed that now, so, what's not to love? A lot of... More

Ever since I have gone here, I have not been back to Harvey's. We always get reserved seating which is great as you get to sit close and you can show up whenever as your seats are reserved. Others have to get there early to get first crack at the best seats in the back. In my opinion that is... More

My stars represent the staff and the facility and not the comedian who was absolutely terrific. Desk ticket distribution women were not the friendliest nor the most helpful, they almost didn't seem interested in what they were doing and mumbled quite a bit. I had to ask them quite a few questions. The restroom was filthy and the trash overflowing... More
