In New York on business myself and two coworkers decided to check out the comedy club. We ended up going two nights in a row. We had a great time and would definitely go back if in the area again.

We purchased the tickets in times square and feel that we were totally mis sold the tickets. There was absolutely no mention about the drinks and the extremely high prices. You have to be kidding! I don't disagree to buying a drink when you go...More

We booked on the fly with no prior knowledge, on arrival thought it was a bit 'backstreet' and were a little tentative ... and then had one of the best nights off stand-up ever. 7 or 8 acts of varying and varied performers, but with...More

Reasonable price for tickets (5 comics). 2 drink minimum.....get the beer because the drinks were ok but didn’t see like full strength. The service was pretty much assembly line style, but the staff was friendly. The club is small so everyone had a great seat....More

Bought from a street salesman. Not the average seller, the guy was very funny and equanimous in his approach. He never mentioned a 2 drink minimum when selling... but other than that he was a genuinely nice guy. Upon arrival, we were asked to wait...More

I don't mind the high price if it's funny, but they just weren't. Many different comedians but not a funny one among them. Avoid.

We got 2 tickets for the Saturday 5pm show. The tickets aren't expensive and you get few people on stage but the drinks. I don't usually drink and was a bit disappointed that I had to spend another $17 dollars on drinks... also there was...More

We were pretty much 'conned' into buying a VIP Pass for this place on Times Square. The printed price on the 'pass' was for $50 where we were told that it was a great night, and drinks started from $6 for a beer, which isn't...More
