Came here on the Comedians Against Humanity night where the comedians improv their comedy from Cards Against Humanity cards. Somewhere absolutely hilarious. Others were not. The show was only about 1.25-1.5 hours. I wish it were a bit longer and that they did more with...More

The comedians were incredible. So from an entertainment factor it was a great show. I do have to say that the seating is way to tight. Every time the guy next to me put his arm around his date, it dangled on my kneecap. Way...More

The comedians were all fantastic and represented a wide range of ages, and topics. Every one of them made my husband and I laugh out loud. The service was excellent and the food and drinks were better than average for comedy club fare. The seating...More

Definitely a great time! The comedians were funny and the place is nice. It is a little crowded, as another reviewer mentioned, but I've been to other comedy clubs and they all seem to do it that way -- they are trying to get the...More

The venue itself was very intimate. A little too intimate if you are seated at the round tables. They place you 4 at a table to share a very small round table. Other than that, the comedians were very funny. The service was great.

I was visiting Philly with friends and we decided to check out the Helium Comedy Club. My expectations were low since I've been to other comedy clubs in other cities that I haven't really enjoyed as much. This was a wonderful surprise. We saw Justin...More

We saw Justin Wilman on 10/1/16. His opening act was funny and well received as was Justin's act. The club is a little packed in, but not unpleasent. Bars were well-staffed and employees were very friendly. We're looking forward to a return visit.

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...More

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...More

You can call the box office to make sure of the time frames that the comics have. I think I'm usually there an hour and a half. There are warm up comics before the headliner.
