We went out for the dinner and a show package. Had a great time, food was good even came with a small dessert. The comedians where great. Kept us laughing the whole time.

Saw Kevin Meaney last night along with two other men who were absolutely hilarious and worth the 25 bucks a person. What I didn't like was that this place is a dinner and show or just show. We had dinner elsewhere and arrived and were...More

My husband and I have been here many times. We went to the location on downtown Albany, Wolf Rd, as well as this current location. Dinner has been consistently great. Service is good. We always have an entertaining evening. Highly recommend.

There were 3 very funny comedians with Robert Kelly being the headliner. It's a small place so they interact with the crowd a lot. Great entertainment and glad to support stand up comics! We didn't eat there but the drinks were affordable.

Loved the MC of the show, a local with great, engaging jokes. A former SNL writer added some grit, & the headliner, a British woman, was edgy & had us all rolling through her set.

Had a great Friday night laughing it up at The Comedy Works watching Gilbert Gottfried (last Friday with John DiCrosta). Laughed till I cried! At a reasonable cost, in a cosy room, I'd highly recommend a date night or friends night out here. Try the...More

My wife and I like comedy shows, but there are none near to us, so we usually only get to see comedy shows when we are traveling. When my wife saw that Carlos Mencia was playing, she asked me to check it out. The prices...More

Nice place to see a funny show. Wouldn't recommend any of the food (portions are huge but not particularly tasty) though. Great line ups of comedians.

The address is really Northern Blvd - check their web site. Their new location is a nice upgrade. Ten of us caught their 9:30 show to celebrate a birthday. Headliner Jessica Kirson was so funny! She had recently been a guest on the Jay Leno...More
