This spot has totally grown on me since I first moved to NYC. It used to be *really* old school gritty and grimy with so-so talent, grouchy staff and awful drinks. But they've done a complete reno and now it's actually a place that feels welcoming and clean and fun! Most shows run about 90 minutes with a good mix... More

Worst time of my stay in NYC, got robbed, I lost money and time of my vacation. Bought a $50 tkt with a two $5 drinks minimum, but when I got there the drinks were double the price I was told. As soon as I got to the table I realized this and left. The Comedy Club won't give a... More

Andres, We apologize that you felt mislead, however there must have been miscommunication as we do offer $5 beers, but those are for pre show and post show specials. We had received your email and made attempts to work out a solution, but we never heard back? If you are still in the city we would be more than happy... More

Don't waste your time and money at this misleading venue. Completely mislead by a friendly sales guy in Times Square. Apparently offered us a great deal of $15 a ticket, down from $25 (the website says $10), yet I see that others have paid more. Clearly getting what he can. The 2 drink minimum is pretty standard but what the... More

David, We are sorry you didn't have a positive experience. I certainly want to address a few things. We do have beverages and beers that are less than $10, the $10 beers are our craft beers. Also the service charge is 18% which is very standard at comedy clubs. Also, you came to a very special/unique show, the Roast Battle... More

I've been here twice within the last month and I had a great time at each show. There is a two drink minimum, and make sure you check your bill as they usually add the tip to the bill before you pay.

Perfect setup for a comedy club. In town from DC and wanted a real NYC comedy experience. This place exceeded all expectations. Comics were awesome, the staff were super friendly and everything was reasonably priced. Haven't laughed this much in a long time. Totally recommend it!!!

We went to a 9pm session, which had something like 8 or 9 comedians. Even the warm up had us laughing so hard! As others have noted, there's a 2 drink/$17 minimum spend on drinks. If you are not a drinker, there is a $17 package of unlimited non-alcoholic drinks + popcorn. The food is great, it's Latin American vegan.... More

As a UK couple, we were offered discounted tickets around Times Sq....never does this approach work on me, however the guy selling was so funny and charming that we gave in...as good as he was, I was still sceptical about whether it was legit or if it would be any good, nevertheless we went to the club a few hours...
