“Worth a visit but street guy said cheap drinks which wasn't true”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

Stopped in Times Square by a guy who was great. Anyway we agreed 2 tickets at $10 each. He said drinks were much less than the Times Square area. They were the same price so this pissed us off. Not that I mind paying but that he said that
The show was really good with around 10 comedians and I'd say that 4of them were very good 3 were good and 3of them died on their arses. All in all a good night.

“A Great Time!”
Reviewed 13 March 2013 via mobile

Someone from the street team stopped us and sold us the tickets for $10 each, which was a great deal. The club is for 17 and up it requires a 2 drink minimum, non alcoholic drinks are $6 so total we spent about $22 each, not bad. The show was way better than I thought it would be. There were so many comedians, I was expecting 3-4, there was about 9. They were all hilarious, even the ones at the end that were upcoming comedians. Overall, a really great experience. However, it's a long walk, considering we stayed across the street from penn station, so be prepared to walk or catch a cab.

“Hilarious!”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

It was our first night in NY and we were hassled by many-a-people selling tickets to comedy shows, they were all very pushy, so naturally we were very hesitant to buy off people like that. We had someone who after hearing us talk ask if we were from Ireland, we aren't...we are from Australia. We got talking after as we were confused how he could confuse the two accents and then he comes out with the fact that he is selling tickets to comedy show (very sneaky) But to his credit, he pointed out that most other people selling tickets are trying to mislead by saying that they are Comedy Central events with big name comics that just wouldn't be there. We were able to negotiate price as it was our first night and we didn't really have any US money on us, he in fact took a Australian $10 part of the payment.

We ended up going on the night of the Election, we were worried as the place looks a like it is from the 70s. There is a 2 drink minimum but for the non-drinkers there is a all you can drink soda option. The food is very average, the selection is all fried, so eat before you go. The comedians were hilarious though! each one was funnier than the last and at the end they had two new guys who they auditioned for future work, which were also hilarious. Staff were very friendly.

“Just what I came to see”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

$20 tickets and two drink minimum. Everything was ridiculously expensive. I don't even remember the comic's names but they were hilarious except for one who would do racist, sexist, crude and seriously not funny jokes time after time after time, sucked the air right out of the room until the last performer came on a got it right back lol. The room was packed to the max but I would go here again definitely and recommend to al
