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 because of the room layout. The comedians -- from the MC through the warm-up act... 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 specials. The opening acts are usually funny young comics from NYC. Prices are very reasonable--for... More

Don't fall for their "New Years extravaganza". First we waited outside for half an hour in the freezing cold because they oversold tickets and couldn't find seats for everyone . There was supposed to be a buffet but it was closing down by the time we got in so we grabbed some disgusting ziti eggplant green beans;etc. We were so... More

Other reviewers talk about the great comedy at the Stress Factory and all 8 in our party agree! The 3 comedians were hysterical. Other reviewers also wrote about crowded conditions, slow service, mediocre food and a long wait to pay at the end of the show. We didn't agree. We arrived at 6 PM for the 7:30 show. A waitress...

Starting off, Vinny Brand offers a lot of deals for the college kids. He is a very generous guy to the surrounding community.

I have been to the Stress Factory may times. Here is the deal as I see it. Buy a ticket to a show. Get in line and get seated. It is a two drink minimum so it's good to have a designated DRIVER. There are soo many restaurants/ bars in the area. There is a parking deck right next door.

Went to this little cozy comedy club location with my husband and some friends and we just loved it so much! The club host some of the funniest upcoming comedians and well established comedians as well; you'll love coming again and again.

I understand a 2 drink minimum but having to wait 25 minutes after the end of the show is pathetic, especially if you are paying cash. On a posture note the drinks were good

Always a good time coming here, great prices and location. Beats the trek into NYC when you have a great comedy club in the heart of New Brunswick.

Great place to catch a comedy show! Vinnie Brand, the owner, opens most shows welcoming all guests, introducing some of the biggest names in comedy! We've seen Amy Schumer, John Oliver, Kevin Nealon, Chris Rock, Whitney Cummings, Margaret Cho, Mike E. Winfield, Brett Ernst, to name a few there! Always a great time!
