Good seats only in the "pit" or front row of upper level next to railing. Not the best sound system or most of the acts don't enunciate.

We visited on our first night in NYC, we was unsure if we’d be ‘too English’ as we have both been to comedy nights in the US before and just didn’t have the same sense of humour to what we expected but we were lucky...More

We took our 11 year old to a Sunday afternoon matinee and had a ball. The young performers were not only funny but provided our son with inspiration. I would definitely recommend this to families with children or teens as an experience everyone can enjoy.

There were two of us, so with a $15 cover, and two-drink minimum, and if you order a few snacks as well, you'll hit $100 with a tip pretty quickly. That should not be a deterrent, because we had a blast. We saw the Tuesday...More

Great comedy -- different comics for different tastes. The host did a lot of heckling, but it was very fun. Two drink minimum -- but still very good value as compared to other NYC entertainment. I will go again!

The comedy club was packed on a Saturday night. The 3 comedians were quite funny. The waitress was overwhelmed and could not keep up to the volume. It was fun for a reasonable price.

We prebooked for a weekend night, and it was a full house. It's a popular place! To secure a table, I'd prebook.
