We have been here twice and had a great time both times. Food and drink prices are what you get downtown but not crazy. The place is intimate and perfect for a comedy show. Waiter and bartender were good and always available. Can't wait to go back again soon.

This was my first visit to the Helium Night Club in Philly, and my last. I will start by saying that the show was good. I saw Godfrey who is very talented and kept us laughing. So lets start there, you're in a comedy club to LAUGH and that's what we were doing when security kept harassing us about being... More

We saw Faizon Love at Helium. We were expecting Mr. Love to be funny and enjoyed his performance. What surprised us the most was how good the opening acts were. There was only one that we really had trouble following, but the other three (including the emcee) were excellent and really had us cracking up. I noticed another traveler complained... More

We saw Jon Lovitz at the club. We had a great night. The club was clean and staff very friendly. Bars available for cocktails and food prior to show. The food was typical bar type food and it was delicious. The staff assisted us as needed and servers were attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will return.

This is a small but good venue to see comics. They book amazing national and local talent. The ticket prices are reasonable. We always get first or second row center seats. The food could be better but I don't go here for the food. Last night we saw @ClaytonEnglish winner of Last Comic Standing.

Louis C.K. special event tonight. Logged in, no link available for purchase, then sold out link, then crashed site, then called and they hung up on me without answering, then no link for purchase again. Big fans were very, very disappointed with service today.

We went here on Valentine's Day weekend and the place was packed. Our server was attentive and the comics were great overall. We saw Hal Sparks and he killed it. The opening act was weak but we didn't go to see her. I would definitely go back again.
