Hubby bought me tickets to see Sarah Colonna this past weekend for my bday. Tickets were shockingly affordable for NYC, although I don't think we've ever been to a comedy club night in the city (seen lots of other shows at arenas or mid-sized venues). I was a little put-off by the note on our tickets that it was a... More

Great show with some very funny comedians. We had a good laugh! We purchased tickets in advance, and upon arrival were seated first come first served. We arrived early and so had good seats. I noticed that some seats were very cramped with 4 people squeezed around very small tables- you sit very close to people, including those not in... More

This is the 3rd comedy venue I have been to in NYC and is by far the best. All comedians were extremely funny. The headline act Paul Mercurio was brilliant, could go back and watch him again tonight.

This place is ideal for seeing a comedy show, eating, drinking and having a good night out. It is reasonably priced. The staff are all very professional, courteous and good looking too. We had no problem parking right on the avenue.

You can always tell if a business is great by the people they employ and boy does Gotham Comedy Club know how to pick them. A great team of wait staff who are courteous and always smiling in fact they even crack a few jokes themselves even before the main acts come out. Wonderful selection of drinks and a pretty... More

Enjoyed my second time at the Comedy Club as much as the first. Great wait staff with lots of fun drinks and good food. Any seat has a great sit. Nice bar in the basement to hang out in.

Been here several times and always a good time. Like any other club they pack you in and the drinks are pricey especially if your from the Midwest. Highly recommend

The show may have been on earlier than usual but that didn't put off the first rate list of comedians who perform under the Comedy Juice brand. The MC did a fantastic job setting the scene early and getting everyone pumped and ready for the first act. The whole show flowed effortlessly and seamlessly from one comedian to the next... More

As a lifelong fan of stand up, I was excited to see NYC comedy clubs on my 1st trip to the city. Chose Gotham due to their great line up of comic choices. They clearly know who to book! Saw Brian Callen at the Saturday early show which I think anyone there will remember how interesting THAT show was! The... More

This club was listed as one of the top comedy places in NYC on cbs local news and it didn't disappoint. The venue was small and intimate. The service was great and the comedians were hilarious. Two hours of laughing! Would recommend this place.

Thank Medha B

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
