Visited the city specifically to catch some stand up. While a few disappointed (I won't review them negatively off just one visit) Gotham was the best I sampled. Caught them on a Monday, which talent-wise is usually the weakest night. But their line up of...More

We did the VIP package, which is probably equivalent to having to meet the two drink minimum. Service was great, guacamole was good, and the comics had us crying. There’s probably not a bad seat in the house, though tables closer to the stage are...More

Recently went to a 8 PM show here on a Monday night. It was a lot of fun with short sets from up-and-coming comics and surprise guests like Jim Gaffigan. (He was funny!) There's a two drink minimum and you can also order food. The...More
