My friend got "free tickets" to this place and I wish we would have given them back. They require you to buy TWO outrageously overpriced drinks. Two beers and two rum and cokes was $67.00. Are you joking??? The only good thing about this place...More

Went with group of friends. Glad we bought our tickets for cheap on Groupon. Food and drinks were way overpriced for what it was. Club is dated. Felt like I was in the 1970's. Brown paneling and dingy cheap decor. Our server was great. Comedy...More

I am not sure but I don't think there is an age minimum. When I was there, we met a couple who was celebrating her graduation from college (so she was about 21 years old). She said she went there with her parents 10 years... More

Dangerfield's Comedy Club (3 Replies)
Has anyone been here? Out of all the comedy clubs I checked, this one has the cheapest tickets ($6 after buy one get one free), and no drink minimum. Sounds too good to be true. Is there something wrong with this place?

Nothing wrong at all. Rodney's club gives unknowns a chance to develop their craft. Where else can you go in NYC and find a cheap, reasonable entertainment?

Apollo Theater / Dangerfield's (1 Replies)
Is the Apollo Theater Amateur Night something worth going to. I think it would be fun, I love music and clubs. We are trying to find some fun things to do on our two week trip to N.Y. I hear about the Appolo all the time on Movies, but I have been told not to go there, it would not be safe for my Fiance' and I. We are caucasion but not racist at all. I was told we would not fit in. What say you??? What about Dangerfield's comedy club? Is it worth the time?

I have been to Dangerfields... and although the comedians were hilarious (my whole group got stomach cramps from laughing so hard), the service was horrible, and the decor was dreary. When I went there on a weekday there was one old guy working there that seemed like he should have been working for the Adam's family rather than in a comedy club. He was pretty nasty... I had a coupon, and he wouldn't fully honor it. (It was a buy one ticket and get one free coupon that I printed off of the web...More

Has anyone been there? How racy do the comics get there? Not that I would worry about it, but I wanted my son to go with us to Avenue Q and he said that he would just be way too uncomfortable with his parents there, even when I offered to get his ticket in a diffrerent part of the theatre. That's of course because he thinks his parents have never heard of s*x. So now he's worried that if we take him to a comedy club that he would be uncomfortable there, too (he is a very shy 17 year old). I...More

Thanks for that info, CockleCove. I think my husband would gladly stay longer to see Les Paul. Between both of my 'boys', it gets really loud around here. I am going to check the websites and I think I may just have another day planned. I really appreciate the help!
