We've gone to the Stress Factory several times over the years - and have always had a great time. They get some great acts - but do your research to ensure the headliner is somebody you will like. A few notes: They do pack you...More

We love the stress factory. Comedy club that always has great comedians booked. Food is pretty good too. On the weekends there are usually 2 shows. You have to wait outside lined up until the first show empties out so sometimes this stinks in cold...More

The show was amazing. I would see all the comics again! The stress factory played great music. The atmosphere was very grown. Only issue I had was the must buy something from the menu.

First time going to the Stress Factory I was totally disappointed. The venue was very overcrowded and not enjoyable at all. The comedians were good but the atmosphere was not what I expected. They sat us with a table of 2 other couples and there...More

Stress Factory is a great time. The staff is super friendly and fun and the place is big so it can comfortably accommodate a lot of people. There is no bad seat in the house, and they even manage to make the show feel intimate...More

This is easily the best comedy club in NJ and on a par with the top clubs in New York City. The headliners include many famous names in the business--Chris Rock; Wanda Sykes, Paul Reiser--and dozens of extremely funny comics who have had solo TV...More

I’m sorry i don’t know for sure but I have never seen them collect money and I sat near the door last time . When you come in they ask your name that you reserved under or to see the confirmation on your phone .

Tickets vary based on the line up. If a celebrity is the headliner, tickets are usually $20-25. You have a food and drink minimum also.
