    Fun Night Out
    I've been to two comedy clubs in New York City, the other being LOL in its old Times Square location, which I visited during a previous trip to the city. I visited Broadway Comedy Club during my most recent visit in February of 2023 and it was definitely the better of the two. The place had a more professional feel and friendlier staff. The show was enjoyable and had its moments, but the show would go several minutes at a time without a laugh. They do place the sound system's speakers in odd places in the venue and one of them was right over my table, causing a little discomfort in my right ear. They have a pretty extensive drink menu, which is good because they have a strictly enforced two-drink minimum purchase. They have several food items, as well, but unfortunately, food purchases don't count toward the drink requirement. I personally would rather just pay more at the door and have more flexibility in what I purchase, but that is their business model.

    Don't Buy Tickets from Times Square Sellers - Great Show
    We had a great time at the comedy club. Our flights were cancelled, so we came into town meaning to catch last minute tickets to a Broadway show, which we ended up being too late for due to some public transit issues. We dodged the gent selling comedy tickets in Times Square, but he gave us the idea to check out the club. So glad we did! We got our tickets online as we were in line. The strict two drink minimum was a surprise, but it was fine. The real surprise came after the show, when the two drink minimum hit the bladder and the restroom line was long. We loved the comics! Al Allubel Lubel, we loved you, and Troy Bond, and all the others we saw. One gal was a total flop, but at least she realized it and excused herself gracefully, and Troy picked up the pieces flawlessly.

    Great venue for comedy
    Fun night out at the Gaylarious LGBT Comedy Show. I’ve been to maybe 5 shows in this series and they never disappoint. The venue is nice and the drinks aren’t too pricey (I love their mudslides). Good time out

    fun enough
    we had fun, wasn't expecting much. there were about 8-10 comedians, none fantastic but good enough. we had gotten free tickets via Eventbrite (also check Groupon). we knew about the 2 drink minimum but thought it not cool they add in the gratuity and another "fee" and a charge to use a credit card. 3 waters and a rum&coke cost $40. I guess they have to earn enough to pay the rent, etc...

    Enjoyable evening out!
    This was an unexpected treat - a really good night out - we both laughed a lot!! Thanks to William for convincing us to visit ... Highly recommended! Some of the reviews seem to state that the drinks were a bit of a rip-off, but they were no more expensive than any other place we visited while in NY.

    Great experience but go with the right mindset
    I really want to counter the string of one-star reviews on Google. Some people just don't have the right mindset for shows like this. Obviously don't expect big names for club gigs. If you're used to comedy festivals like the Edinburgh Fringe, you'll feel right at home! In fact I sincerely hope to see some of this guys (/gn) again there. As for the 2 drink minimum: this is communicated clearly and handled politely. Ok so it will add another 20 to your expenses, so what? Where else are you gonna get 2 hours worth of atmospheric entertainment in Manhattan for 40 dollars per person? I went by myself, had a lovely chat with people at my table and with the comedians at the door afterwards as well. You create a big part of your enjoyment during a club comedy lineup gig yourself. Point of criticism to staff: the restroom floor guys... doesn't need to be that sticky I'm sure. Just mop it between gigs ok, it'd go a long way 😏

Had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly while the MC was funny and kept things moving smoothly. There were 5 acts which were both entertaining and funny. The admission fee is very reasonable but there is a two drink minimum. There is a good selection of drinks which are very reasonably priced. For a fun event, give this place a try! Highly recommended!

We recently had a very disappointing experience with a comedy show ticket purchase, which I feel compelled to share. Last night, around 11:50 PM, we bought tickets from a reseller in Times Square for a midnight comedy show, excited for what we thought would be a highlight of our New York visit.

However, upon arriving at the venue, we were informed that no late-night shows were scheduled for that time. This was not only confusing but also frustrating, as we had just secured tickets for this specific show. The staff suggested we attend the next night’s show, but this wasn't an option for us due to our travel itinerary.

This experience significantly impacted our evening plans, and we felt let down by the lack of organization and clear communication. The situation was a stark contrast to the vibrant and reliable nightlife we had experienced in the city so far.

I would advise others to be cautious when purchasing tickets from resellers in Times Square, especially for late-night events. It's a shame that what was supposed to be an enjoyable part of our trip ended in such a disappointing manner.

I have reached out to the club in hopes of a resolution, and will update this review with any updates.

We bought tickets from a street guy with a hand drawn sign (1st red red flag), and he promised certain well known comedians (lie #1), he said there was a two drink minimum, but he would wave that (lie #2), water was available for us if we wanted. We got to the club and the bathrooms were disgusting, and the waiter came up and said no one could wave the 2 drink minimum. So we ordered a water, a canned drink, and a mixed drink. I had no idea what was in the mixed drink, but it tasted like industrial cleaner. He came back after and brought a second round, and I refused the second drink because the first was so bad. At the end of the show he gave us our tab worth $63 for 2 canned drinks and 2 waters plus a handsome tip. When I told him I couldn't stomach the mixed drinks he said it didn't matter, and he demanded the money. This is a scam. Never buy these tickets from a street vendor, and especially don't go to this club.

Comedians were pretty good. Beware: cramped space, no table to set your drink on, there is a 2-drink minimum, they add a gratuity to the bill that you cannot see since its dark when they give you the bill and collect the money, and the drinks are terribly gross. If you're paying that much for a drink, they should at least use name-brand alcohol.

Many comedians took the stage for their 5mn of fame, 1 or 2 made us laugh.
The biggest joke of all are the fees added to your bill.
Buyer beware!

Over priced; lacking in laughs, cheap racism on display, desperately trying unfunny compare. The Mexican Lade comic was good.
They also force you to buy two over priced drinks per person. Small pokey room. Avoid.
