We enjoyed the comedians at the comic strip live! They were many of them and most of them were hilarious. Don't go hungry and be careful about your cocktails. Mine seemed very weak for the money. To be fair, sometimes it's hard to tell. The...More

Most of the comedians were hilarious. I laughed out loud at them. They used their own material and also ragged on the audience very well-including shutting up people who forget the show and attention is supposed to be focused on the comedians and not them.....More

The comedians were funny. Interestingly, that's not always the case for a comedy club. I purchased my tickets on groupon so I got my money's worth. I had a good time. I have been there before and I will go back.

My neighborhood comedy club - booming for decades. It's all about the acts the club books and this place has it down. Decent food and drinks, too! A great evening. Do not go if you're easily offended!

No complaints about the comics or service. The drinks bill however, was twice the amount than it said on the price list - and it's a condition of your ticket that you buy two drinks per person. We had to pay $80 for a bottle...More

We went uptown for a comedy show and were not disappointed. The host and the three comics were quite funny, although I prefer it to be a little cleaner in language. I have been to shows in other cities that were so nasty, that I...More

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
