Low cost family entertainment for the entire family. Awesome host and mixed crowd. The Apollo is located near a subway station, so it is easily accessible and has adequate lighting at night. At 10:00 p.m. I felt safe walking to the subway station in Harlem.

Bought tickets at the door, although it filled quickly. Great night of music, fun and laughs. The kids and the amateurs were great, so not too much booing. Great fun!

We páid about $40 per person. We queued at the door before it got too busy. There were cheaper seats I think. Great night. Hard to find prices on website, need to check if amateur night is on every week. Hope you get to go!
