New York Comedy Club, Reviews
First things first - requiring to buy two drinks minimum per person and serving $13 cocktail in a plastic cup?... it actually says on a menu - $17 min per person, food doesn’t count. And then I understood why. It’s simple - when you drink all the jokes seems funnier. Honestly. Some comedians are great. Like two max for a night. But the rest?... you judge it. After the Comedy Cellar this place isn’t a good choice. Just don’t. Bonus - the “service fee” is already included to the bill which is illegal. Adios, never again.
This comedy club is smaller than what I expected. The tables and chairs are a bit too close. Menu pricing is reasonable and comedians were pretty good for the most part. It would be great if they had 1-2 more restrooms. Other than that everything was decent.
We got tickets to a show from a guy selling them in Times Square. We were pretty sketched out at first but the guy was very friendly. We ended up buying the tickets and heading down for the 9PM show. We had such a fantastic time! The comedians were hilarious but I think my favorite was the host. He had us laughing the whole time during the opening. I am very glad we went, it ended up being expensive (standard 2 drink minimum) but worth it for the experience.
Not my favorite night. I paid $25 + $3 service fee(online purchase) to get in and I found out that a lot of other people had either gotten in for free or discounted tickets. Mind you this was a Wednesday night so only half the theatre was full so they obviously wanted to fill seats so I can see their reasoning. I would of been happy with the price if the show had stopped at 8 comedians, but someone had the great idea of doing 17 comedians. Ten comedians in over half the audience had left. Twelve comedians in 3/4 of the audience had left. They had obviously scheduled the greener or less funny comedians at the end. They did have one or two funny comedians at the end, but mostly duds. The last 2-3 comics were very appreciative of us staying which was nice. I would be bothered less, except it seemed like two of the comics near the end were berating us of not being a very good audience. First of all, their jokes were just falling flat, and second we'd already seen so many comedians that we were a little laughed out. Third we were only an audience of 6. It could of been a good experience if I didn't feel like I was being held hostage by my politeness and they ended at 8 comics. The other side of the coin which was a little frustrating was the drink situation. Waitress was great. Seemed very on top of it. They have a "2 drink minimum" which really means a $17 minimum which really means a $23 minimum. That's only if you choose the $17 unlimited soda option or the Budweiser option. The minimum you can get away purchasing alcohol is 2 Budweiser(cheapest option) $8.50/ piece $2 tax $4 mandatory tip. $23 total. I don't mind paying that much, but at least tell me it's going to be that much instead of jerking me around with price. Lastly of all, it almost feels like it's industry practice to be able to walk out on comedians especially when they have so many in a row(with no break). I don't like that idea, but I wouldn't hesitate to do it in the future, I'll just try to be discreet about it.
It was not our first choice but it should have been. I LMFAO and my wife did too. The line up was really good and it was a great way to end the night. Don’t get too bent out of shape about the two drink ($17) minimum, all the clubs do it. We had a blast!
