Nice venue for comedy. Be aware that there is a 2 drink minimum charge if you are seeing comedy on top of the tickets you have to purchase. The drinks must be purchased in the show area not before. Food and drinks are a little pricey so be prepared for the bill.

You are treated like cattle in this dumpy basement venue, constantly reminded of 2 drink minimum, then wait 40 mins to get your drink. The first comedian Todd Berry was the best of the night. The next two, a husband and wife team were truly awful, although she (Natasha Leggero) was better than him (Moshe Kasner). Moshe believes that using... More

We had a blast. Great show. Can't wait to go back. This is a must do if you want to laugh. Different types of dress attire.

We are not from the US but generally find US humour great fun. The only similarity with US humour and this was it featured a President Obama and Donald Trump lookalike. Overall it was awful and in places embarrassing. The Obama guy was quite good but same joke over and over, the Trump guy was good but who knew he... More

First: We saw Gary Owens and loved his act. It was smart, slick comedy. He knows how to tell a story and be ever so slightly bawdy without making it "ick". Well done. Second: Caroline's is a great idea if you don't want to spend hundreds on a Broadway Show. The club is right by Times Square so you're already... More

Had a great time during a recent performance by Gary Owens. Intimate setting and tons of laughs. Don't sit in the very front. This is a comedy joint and you will be part of the act. Food is expensive and so so on quality. I suggest eating somewhere else. Will definitely attend another show.

This is an old School comedy spot. We saw Shawn Wayans from Scary Movie doing a great funny set, but stay away from the Food - which means you should eat before you og here

Service was very poor, ordered drinks and reminded the waiter twice, whom nodded, and still was never served. (glasses, black hair) Burgers weren't great either. Acts were okay, and not my type of humour on the whole, but each to their own on that. Ultimately it was a bit of a let down personally.

I go to comedy clubs whenever I can, and I love Caroline's. It's in a great location, the cost is not out of the ordinary for NYC, and the acts are always good. The location is large, so you can have a big group, and I don't have to worry about them selling out as quickly as some venues. A... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
