Not so funny

I recently attended a Friday evening comedy show. Cover charge and 2 drink minimum. Food was blah, drinks the same. Service was worse.

On our last night in NYC this past Saturday, we wanted to do something fun after dinner and we got tickets to the 9:00 show. What a blast! Comics were so funny and the crowd was a mix of locals and visitors. There is 2 drink minimum, stick to a nice cold Corona and you will be fine. Make sure... More

As many others, I bought the tickets from a guy at times square. Me and my girlfriend. I read reviews after and thought I just had threwn my money out the window. But anyway, we found the club and went to the show. It wasn't bad at all. Maybe 8 comedians and many of them where hilarious. Yes, you have... More

Purchased some tickets half price through a tout in Times Square. Minimum drinks of two each required, which aren't cheap, but then alcohol isn't cheap in NYC anyway! Good atmosphere, some really good comedians, over two hours there, really enjoyed it.

I havent laughed so hard in a long time, defiantely worth getting in early to sit front row and have some banter with the comedians, I guess we got lucky on... More

My 67 year old Mother and I were walking in Times Square when a vendor approached us about going to see a comedy show starring Amy Shumer. He said they were last minute tickets and would only cost $20 each and we would get 2 free drinks. He said it started at 9:15pm and we started to walk at 8:45pm... More

We got tickets off a guy in Times Square. Two for $30. If we had of bartered prob could've got them for $5 each. The guy who sold them told us it's just up the road from Times Square. Yeah right more like a 20 minute walk. We knew it was a two drink minimum but what we didn't realise... More

Being in the city of comedy, we thought a comedy club was a good way to spend the night when a guy approached us on Times Square. We were told it was 90 min but it was an hour more. A lot of ok comedians doing short acts but it would be better if they picked out the good to... More

My wife and I purchased tickets for this on Times Square after a 9 hour flight. We regretted our purchase after reading the reviews as we though it to be a tourist trap. We made reservations for January 1 and thought let's make the best of it. The show was 2,5 hours and we saw 12 comedians. A few weren't... More

Very filthy place. Even the comedians looked dirty. We were ripped off by a guy in Times Square selling tickets for NYE, it turns out NYPD would not even let us close to the alleged location. DO NOT trust anyone selling you tickets for this place.

I am very sorry about your recent experience....I must say this is a weird review...The comics looked dirty ? Also, as far as your complaint about NYPD... We were virtually sold out show New Year's Eve and while our location for New Year's Eve might be a challenge somehow everybody else got to the venue ... Our customers, our staff,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
