I "RESERVED" table for 2 & "PAID" fee online for 10pm show. We traveled all the way from SUFFOLK COUNTY. Was late 20 mins due to traffic 3 blocks away. Was turned away at the door, because our "RESERVED" seating was sold to walk-in patrons. What's the purpose of selling Reserved tickets, if you're not reserving anything. Very UNPROFESSIONAL &...

Caught the 9pm show here on the Friday night having been at their sister club in Greenwich Village the night before. Both shows were fantastic and a great mix of comedians (5 in total) who are circuit pros having done some tv work as well on the comedy channels. The tickets the night before cost us $15 each and we... More

My husband and I have been here 2 times. They have an assortment of styles of comedians. Most of them are newbies, but they're all usually pretty good. I like the close set up of the audience. If you go on Groupon, you might find a deal like I did. Only $22 for two of us, which included an alcoholic... More

We purchased tickets for this show from a street vendor. The price was good and the vendor was knowledgeable about the show. When we arrived at the show, we were instructed that there was a 2 drink min per person. That was fine, but we didn't expect it. The show was fun, the space was dark and a little dated... More

The potential is there for a good night of comedy but also a few tips to save money and not be ripped off: A woman approached my girlfriend and I in Times Square offering tickets for a comedy night. We were told $30 each but then that was quickly changed to $20 each and then she eventually did them for... More

We were approached on the street for cheap tickets and decided to try it out. Don't go... you have buy at least two drinks, which were way over priced and terrible! The host and comedians were terrible and offensive (some people even got up and left). They picked on one group in particular, way past the point of it even... More

The temperature in the room was very hot. The comedians on stage were very cold. I was seated on a bench on the side of the room. The MC was standing in front of me off and on some of the time so I couldn't even see the stage. When talking to the staff about this he was rude and... More

Drinks are a complete rip off $55 dollars including compulsory gratuity for four utterly crap glasses of wine. Mediocre comics taking cheap shots at subjects like the homeless. Dingy venue. Do something else, anything would be better. One to be avoided.

Do not go! Performers are appalling not funny at all. Cheap laughs, abuse and crude comments. Pathetic. Save your money.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
