We went to Helium with a large group (paid extra to sit together) to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We got there an hour early, the air conditioning hadn’t been working for 3 days and there were no fans in the waiting area/bar. Within minutes of...More

Well let’s start with booking. We called a few hours ahead to get more information - it would put us on hold for 10 mins and then hang up. So my boyfriend and I figured it won’t be sold out it’s sunday. We saw online...More

The comedians who cycle through Helium make the trip worthwhile and the two warm up acts are consistently entertaining, which would’ve earned a higher rating. The club itself, however, is less than ideal. The seating is incredibly cramped (moreso than even NYC clubs), even when...More

Visited helium and did not agree with some of the negative reviews. Seating was fine - good - acceptable. You should arrive early, as the show does sell out. Laughed the entire night and service was good, as well! I say take chance - cant...More

Really great show! There were 2 comedians beside the head liner which I thought were just as good as the headliner Brian Posehn. They are very organized and you can enjoy a drink at the cozy bar while you wait for the doors to open...More

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
