Good show and lively cast if you like 'who's line is it anyway' type of show.

“Great fun at a great price. unexpectedly good”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

We took a group of 20 to NYC for dinner and 'something' and found the National Comedy theater. went to the early show. They were very accommodating in seating us as a group. The teams obviously used to working with each other so it moved very quickly. Lots of laughs, adopting to input from audience. Great when the actors also started laughing. Moved very fast; had the special Halloween show. Great thing is you can go back and see a completely different show - even if it's the late show on the same night. Highly recommended for a slightly different evening experience in NYC

“inexpensive impromptu comedy club in an intimate setting”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

2 shows every Friday and Saturday evening. Great audience participation- so the more you friends you bring, the more fun you will have! I especially appreciated the lack of those nasty words so evident in other comedy club settings.

“FAMILY, LOVE AND HUMOR..”
Reviewed 22 October 2011

The characters in the show had interaction with the audience from the begining to the end of the show, they kept the young audience engage which is very important. the show was 90 minutes at a price of $12.00 if you register with play bill and bring the code number for that production other wise you will pay $15.00. they had beer and soda for purchase and you could bring food into the theatre.
