We saw an "all-star" show that included 10 comedians and a surprise guest at the end. Each one was funny, some more than others of course. The content was PG rated, which we appreciated. Service was really slow, in fact we did not even see a server to get us our required 2nd drink until right before the last performer.

We went here with co-workers, we had a great night full of laughs. If you're looking to disconnect yourself from the routine and have a good drinks and laughs you should visit this show.

We ended up here after not being able to get into another venue and I am glad things worked out the way they did. From the time we arrived everyone from the hostess to the servers and the bartenders were all friendly and nice. There is a standard two drink (food not included) minimum but drink prices for specialty sodas... More

My son and I had a great time at the Gotham Comedy Club. There wasn't a bad comic in the mix so it would have been a great time no matter what. But we hit the jackpot by getting to see Seinfeld and Jim Gaffigan. If you compare this comedy club to a show, it's quite a bargain. An evening... More

Several Comedians were showcased. All of them pretty funny. We did the VIP package which I'm not sure was worth the money. It was open bar, one appetizer and admission. VIP seats were good. Service was fantastic.

Absolutely loved our evening at the Gotham Comedy Club. We went the weekend Carlos Mencia was headlining. Yes, there is a two drink minimum after the show entrance fee, but an evening out for $100 for two people is fairly reasonable anyhow. It was completely worth it - the opening acts and Carlos were hilarious. I would definitely be a... More

We went for a Sunday night "All Stars" show. The place was maybe half full? The food was okay -- nothing great -- but you don't really go there for the food. The drinks were good -- a little over-priced, but not exorbitant. However, all of the comedians were great -- plus we had two surprise guests -- Jim Gaffigan... More

After not really knowing what to expect and many other comedy clubs in New York to choose from - we were very impressed with our choice to go to a show at Gotham comedy club. Would highly recommend!!! Definitely hope to come back here again. The two drink minimum was no issue and the drinks were very reasonably priced (no... More

Good show although I wasn't too particular about half the content. They seem to show headliners with a warmup act. I would have preferred more comedians with shorter acts. There are other places to do that , but as a facility, very nice club . However , since they like to do one major act , make sure it's something... More

Staying in Chelsea

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
