A lot of laughs

Went on a whim and truly enjoyed the experience. They do a show the 3rd weekend of the month. There was a DJ, who was excellent, and a band too. The 5 comedians were very funny.

Looking for adult entertainment, the laughing kind? Well, the Gotham is the place to go if you want to laugh your head off. My grandson's 19 and I'm 73 so there is a broad(no insult intended ladies) spectrum of comedy material you will definitely enjoy. We've been there twice, this time with his 19 year old girlfriend. They have both... More

Staff here are super friendly and really want you to have a good experience. We attended the early New Years Eve show so we could get back to our accommodations quickly. As with most shows there was a two drink minimum after the cost of the show. Pretty standard business model. Staff work hard and provide excellent service. Comedians stayed... More

I've been to the Gotham Comedy Club many times and I'm always satisfied with my experience. This is a 'PROFESSIONAL" Club. I've come for a $15 a person show and have seen special guests performers like Louis CK, and Jerry Seinfeld just stop in and perform 20 minute acts. The owner has some kind of special relationship with all these... More

I have been here over 20 times. Gotham is one of the 3 top comedy clubs in NYC and one of the top 10 in the US. It draws major headliners and often has unannounced visits by Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc. Expect to pay $15-$25 admission plus buy 2 drinks for a superb 90 minute show. No... More

We had a fantastic evening at the Gotham Comedy Club. Great service from the moment you walk in, and the acts were great. It was a pretty varied line up so something for everyone.

Hubby bought me tickets to see Sarah Colonna this past weekend for my bday. Tickets were shockingly affordable for NYC, although I don't think we've ever been to a comedy club night in the city (seen lots of other shows at arenas or mid-sized venues). I was a little put-off by the note on our tickets that it was a... More

Great show with some very funny comedians. We had a good laugh! We purchased tickets in advance, and upon arrival were seated first come first served. We arrived early and so had good seats. I noticed that some seats were very cramped with 4 people squeezed around very small tables- you sit very close to people, including those not in... More

This is the 3rd comedy venue I have been to in NYC and is by far the best. All comedians were extremely funny. The headline act Paul Mercurio was brilliant, could go back and watch him again tonight.

This place is ideal for seeing a comedy show, eating, drinking and having a good night out. It is reasonably priced. The staff are all very professional, courteous and good looking too. We had no problem parking right on the avenue.

Thank Veronica G

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
