We received tickets as a gift, and we were excited to attend a place that launched so many comedian's careers and that is so well known in NYC. Most of the comedians were good, but a couple were just okay. None of the acts were very memorable. There is a minimum two item order per person, and food/drink prices are... More

Ok, so we bought the tickets off some dude on Times Square; $40 for the both of us. Apparently, it's quite expensive because you can get them for A LOT LESS from their website (we found out later), but of course, their website is really bad quality and maybe only their friends or locals know about it. Anyway, after purchasing... More

We bought tickets for Dangerfields from a ticket tout on Times Square who was shouting 'Tina Fey' and other currently popular comedians. We bought two tickets for $20 and went to the show. The previous show was overrunning so our show started late. The drinks were expensive. We saw 5 comedy acts who were all unknowns and although we had... More

No offence to the comedians who played, but I wouldn't go back. The comedians were mostly very funny and entertaining. However we got duped into tickets at times square by someone who doesn't even work for the club, and paid $20 each for entry. This is waaaay cheaper to buy online, or at another club. Also there's a 2 drink... More

Decided to go to Dangerfield's instead of another comedy club because it was near the hotel where we were staying. Five of the six comedians were very funny (the sixth comic bombed). Not a place for kids however since a lot of the comedy was very adult. A little shocked when we got the bar bill because the drinks were... More

Buy your tickets online if you want to go. $10 for TWO tickets. Do not get scammed like we did for $40 at Times Square. Even Better--dont buy tickets at all. Show is mediocre at Best. Go elsewhere.

We went out of our way to come here over other comedy clubs thinking it had a better reputation to uphold and would secure better talent. We were wrong. The comedians were just not funny and the comedians made their acts seem very routine, as if they were interrupting their time at the bar to do their stand-up for us.... More

It's not a 2 drink minimum 1st of all. It's 2 drink minimum or $20 minimum. Some clubs only have 2 drink minimum food excluded. And 2ndly, every comedy club in the city has that rule so if you're familiar with comedy clubs in Manhattan you know that's the norm so nothing shocking here. Anyway, I've been to a few... More

We were approached by a gentleman named Jeffrey in Times Square who quickly talked us into buying these tickets, he was very good with words and a great salesman. Overall we got the tickets at a reasonable price ($20 per person), which is the amount printed on the ticket and he very kindly gave my friend and I a second... More

We had free tickets from our host, and it was the start of an amazing night!! The comics were decent, though Danté Nero stole the show and made our experience memorable. I was crying I was laughing so hard!

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
