... we'd all go insane. - Robert Frost I couldn't agree more. Pick a night when you'll see someone who you find funny, relax and enjoy the show. The seating is, like most comedy clubs, really tight. You will be crammed next to strangers. Even...More

Really great show! There were 2 comedians beside the head liner which I thought were just as good as the headliner Brian Posehn. They are very organized and you can enjoy a drink at the cozy bar while you wait for the doors to open...More

Came here on the Comedians Against Humanity night where the comedians improv their comedy from Cards Against Humanity cards. Somewhere absolutely hilarious. Others were not. The show was only about 1.25-1.5 hours. I wish it were a bit longer and that they did more with...More

The comedians were incredible. So from an entertainment factor it was a great show. I do have to say that the seating is way to tight. Every time the guy next to me put his arm around his date, it dangled on my kneecap. Way...More

The venue itself was very intimate. A little too intimate if you are seated at the round tables. They place you 4 at a table to share a very small round table. Other than that, the comedians were very funny. The service was great.

I was visiting Philly with friends and we decided to check out the Helium Comedy Club. My expectations were low since I've been to other comedy clubs in other cities that I haven't really enjoyed as much. This was a wonderful surprise. We saw Justin...More

We saw Justin Wilman on 10/1/16. His opening act was funny and well received as was Justin's act. The club is a little packed in, but not unpleasent. Bars were well-staffed and employees were very friendly. We're looking forward to a return visit.

You can call the box office to make sure of the time frames that the comics have. I think I'm usually there an hour and a half. There are warm up comics before the headliner.
