    Saw the 10 pm Village Underground Show. Hilarious! All 5 comics and the host were very funny, each in their own way. Very small, intimate space. You’re right on the stage with the comics practically which is part of what makes it a special, only in NYC, kind of experience

    We took our teens (17 & 19) with us to see ASSSSCAT 3000. The show can get racy at times, but nothing they haven’t heard in an R-rated movie. We enjoyed the improv comedy, both for the laughs and because it was interesting to see how the comedians work through it. The price for tickets is right. They serve alcoholic drinks for a fair price. The neighborhood isn’t great.

    The menu was quite varied and the service was excellent. The cake was excellent, and it wasn't too loud inside.

    I happened to be in Brooklyn and I was looking for something entertaining to do.. I came across this hidden gem. I paid for the 830pm show and stayed for the 10 pm as well. I’ve never heard of this place so I figured there would be up and coming comedians trying new material. I wasn’t expecting to do a lot of laughing but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s small, quaint and intimate and it adds to the charm of this place. Also, I was definitely taken aback when Jordan Rock stopped in to try some new material. He was hilarious! They have a wine/beer/hard seltzer menu with popcorn and snacks(including twizzlers. My favorite). I would definitely recommend the tiny cupboard for a nice date night or a group hang. P.s. the staff are chill and friendly.

    I heard about this place and dropped by to see the Improv Jam which was like open mic night for improv people. I had a couple beers at the bar and enjoyed talking with Randy who was very sharp and was able to explain a lot about the Improv process. The Jam itself was just people working from a word given by an audience member. There were slow periods but there were some really funny moments and I enjoyed seeing people work at it. It was a very casual supportive environment and I had a good time.

    Our first time here but a great one. Front of house staff are helpful and friendly. We went on a “new talent” night and saw somewhere between 10 and 15 comedians, each of whom had about 10-15 minutes each. They were hit or miss but overall, we had a great time seeing new talent.

    If y’all know of anyone who will be in NYC on May 23rd, a kid-friendly superhero musical web series will be screening with live vocals while the film is running! . They have won awards/nominations at film/web festivals: Orlando Film Festival and #stareable web fest.

    So I had a spare night and decided to try the mid town club, purchased for $25 pp on line that night. When we arrived at midtown they told us it was in fact east town. This changed from the website to the checkout but not an issue just a cab ride for $10.
    I was made aware of the $18 min spends which again was fine. The show was good although I didn’t realise it might where the acts tried new jokes but luckily they were funny. Service was fine no real issues.

    We did receive a return ticket for free so decided to go again on the second night. Emailed and arranged it with no issues.

    On arriving I was advised the same as the night before. But this time we had a pushy waitress who incident we ordered more drinks as 3 cocktails at $16 was not enough despite me telling her the maths. I was happy to order more and said we would on last orders which was not called like the previous night. Due to this female asking 5/6 times throughout the evening took the piss and I missed some of the acts and honestly ruined my night. Turned out she also charged me a service charge and tip. So cost me 40% but I suppose I should have checked the fine print. All in all great first night ruined by the second which was free. 50/50

    Huge shout out to the comics who performed the night I got to go. They were truly phenomenal. I've been to several comedy clubs, and most are worth a chuckle or two, but this place had us in stitches. I can't credit the mandatory booze you must purchase, either, since none of us could even taste the alcohol. So, 5000 stars for the entertainment; 0 stars for the horrible overpriced (non)alcoholic drinks.

    Good times for a decent price. You can get tickets last minute rather inexpensive and they do a nice job. It’s funny improv. About an hour so it’s not real long which is nice if you want a little fun laugh

    The one show I watched wasn't amazing but the place has a good vibe and friendly staff. I came with my wheelchair hoping the place will be accessible and found it reasonably accessible for a short visit (don't think the bathroom was accessible).

    This was just a fun time. Plain and simple. This venue is small, but that’s okay; it was just the right size for this event. Good times!
