Went to a show with multiple comics on 5/17. Paid a bit more for preferred seating. Well worth it- we were in the 1st row. You do have to buy 2 drinks a person- I was with my teens and do not drink much so...More

We were here specifically to see Jeff Ross. We paid extra for VIP seating and thought it was worth it to be up close. If you're going to get food, stick with the appetizers and go out to dinner afterwards. It's a legendary NYC comedy...More
