The comedians who cycle through Helium make the trip worthwhile and the two warm up acts are consistently entertaining, which would’ve earned a higher rating. The club itself, however, is less than ideal. The seating is incredibly cramped (moreso than even NYC clubs), even when...More

Visited helium and did not agree with some of the negative reviews. Seating was fine - good - acceptable. You should arrive early, as the show does sell out. Laughed the entire night and service was good, as well! I say take chance - cant...More

Helium Comedy Club packs customers in so tight you may need a shoehorn to squeeze in. Tables are tiny and seat 4! There's barely room on the table for 4 drinks not to mention plates. And speaking of plates, the food here is worth passing...More

Really great show! There were 2 comedians beside the head liner which I thought were just as good as the headliner Brian Posehn. They are very organized and you can enjoy a drink at the cozy bar while you wait for the doors to open...More

Came here on the Comedians Against Humanity night where the comedians improv their comedy from Cards Against Humanity cards. Somewhere absolutely hilarious. Others were not. The show was only about 1.25-1.5 hours. I wish it were a bit longer and that they did more with...More

You can call the box office to make sure of the time frames that the comics have. I think I'm usually there an hour and a half. There are warm up comics before the headliner.
