From now on - this is one of my favorite clubs in NYC! I had a blast!! As a big fan of comedy, I do recommend this place with all my heart. Amazing comedians, good service, yummie drinks and a very intimate/cozy club in general. If you want a fun night out, start your night out in a fun way... 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...

Great night of laughs with a number of good comedians. Glad they allow my teenage son to attend. We all laughed had good food and drinks. Not over priced either.

We were there on a saturday evening with a line up of several stand up 'comedians'. The host was funny, the first three comedians as well, but the next really hit rock bottom. A lady who thought she was funny (Jessica Kirson) tried to make people laugh with a show which was at least 3 years old. And when that... More

Koen, We are sorry you didn't enjoy Jessica, but she is widely regarded as one of the most respected comedians in the country with such credits as "Last Comic Standing", appearances on the Howard Stern Show, and various appearances on the "Tonight Show". Perhaps it was just an off night for her, or maybe she just isn't for you? We... More

We are so happy you enjoyed yourself, and got lucky with those discounted tickets!! If you remember which night you attended let us know, we will gladly let you know who you saw that night. You will actually find that the comics you had seen are all comedians with major TV credits. So often many customers will be blown away... More

This was a great stop for us while touring NYC. $25 per person with a two drink minimum. Excellent comedians, small club puts you right up close. Nice location in the Village. Shows last about two hours. No food, just popcorn.

A local friend grabbed us tickets to a Friday night show, and a great time was had by all. A great lineup of comedians, delivered a broad range of comedy. The performance space was reasonable & the drinks were not overly expensive for the type of venue. One small criticism would be the lack of seating/room to gather before the... More

I went to a show this weekend and paid using my credit card. The next day, I discovered two fraud transactions from Express and VUE BSL. The waitress named Kristina must of skimmed my card there. She did take forever to return my card to the table. Don't be fooled by the cheap groupon deal, this comedy club is filled... More
