Great comedians

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... read more

Definitely a great time! The comedians were funny and the place is nice. It is a little crowded, as another reviewer mentioned, but I've been to other comedy clubs and they all seem to do it that way -- they are trying to get the maximum amount of people in. We sat with a nice couple -- everyone is there... More

Great venue and attentive staff! Was there with my sales team and we had a blast including a great buffet style meal! Comedians were good... didn't fall off my chair but it's a challenge to get me to laugh... most people would have thought they were awesome though. Great place great service and great comedy!!

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 Wilman, he was hilarious and very talented! Did amazing magic tricks which left us all... 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.

We have been here twice and had a great time both times. Food and drink prices are what you get downtown but not crazy. The place is intimate and perfect for a comedy show. Waiter and bartender were good and always available. Can't wait to go back again soon.

This was my first visit to the Helium Night Club in Philly, and my last. I will start by saying that the show was good. I saw Godfrey who is very talented and kept us laughing. So lets start there, you're in a comedy club to LAUGH and that's what we were doing when security kept harassing us about being... More

Recently saw Rod Man at the club. The show was excellent. The club is nothing too special but we used the Helium Boost and had reserve seats which were 2nd row from the stage. The section we were in was roomy enough. The service was average. We did not order any food but there were lots of people who did.... More

We saw Faizon Love at Helium. We were expecting Mr. Love to be funny and enjoyed his performance. What surprised us the most was how good the opening acts were. There was only one that we really had trouble following, but the other three (including the emcee) were excellent and really had us cracking up. I noticed another traveler complained... More

We saw Jon Lovitz at the club. We had a great night. The club was clean and staff very friendly. Bars available for cocktails and food prior to show. The food was typical bar type food and it was delicious. The staff assisted us as needed and servers were attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will return.
