You couldn't pay me to go back! – My grandmother is funnier than most of those comedians I saw that night. I should have stayed home and saved my $26, which is what I spent on drinks for me and my friends (the least I could do for dragging them to this sorry display of talent less sheep). At one point I became dizzy from the revolving door of comedians that exited the stage as quickly as they entered. The decrepit urine stenched bathroom was mildly reminiscent of a scene from a horror movie. The one saving grace of the entire night was Ronnie, an urban comedian who understood what real comedy is all about. He had the audience genuinely laughing from the time he got on stage until the time he left. That man definitely has talent. Unfortunately, he was not enough to save the rest of the night. After seeing those ?um?performers I?d say that Grandma definitely has a good shot at stand up comedy!
One club, two rooms, reasonable prices, guaranteed laughs. – Place Matters
The Big Room has the look and feel of a classic comedy club: seating for 135 at small tables with great sight lines; the smaller Space @ 24 is an intimate 52-seat house. For either area, the menu has a variety of cheap food items--all prepared on-site--while a full bar features some imaginative frozen drinks. Group rates for 10 or more encourage advance reservations, especially if you're looking to be seated together.
On the Scene
NYCC attracts a diverse clientele, and the house MCs work harder at making you comfortable than making a joke at your expense. The Big Room is where you'll find top NYC comics at cover charges far below the usual. Headliner showcases feature an MC and 4 stand-ups. In The Space@24, the weekly African-American and Latino-themed shows have a well-earned cult following while bigger names drop by unannounced.
User review by carlalotta12345 – This club is awesome. I've gone here many times. It's got great comedy and the prices are low. The same comics appear at this club that appear at other (more expensive) comedy clubs. Anyone who complains about the prices, shouldn't even step out of their apt or trailer. A freakin' movie costs close to $10 and this club only charges $12 and the shows are 2 hrs long! The same 2 drink min. applies at this club that applies to every other comedy club in the freakin' world. The people that complain must be from another planet. By the way, the club is undergoing renovations...so, if you can't deal with it...DON'T! The comics still come and and have a blast. Why shouldn't you?
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER again – B4 I start, I want 2 say for that price I wasn't looking 4 the RITZ. But New York Comedy Club was the worst comedy Club I have ever entered. 1st, they were 45min late, their tables were not cleaned from the previous show. They had 5 comics & the 1st 3 were kinda funny but the remaining 2, HORRIBLE & BORING I actually fell asleep. The worst of all was the food. We bought "3 Crown burgers & chips" for $5.50 & what we got back, were these 3 micro-waved mini burgers cooked hrs B4 & a small bag of chips that U would get at Halloween. I thought I would get French fries not a BAG of CHIPS, Then they had the nerve 2 charge a service charge, WHAT SERVICE? The next time Im in New York, I hope I dont even smell their club.
Oh, Where Do I begin? – Went after dragging my 3 outta town guests to come out. What a mistake. For a Saturday night, we had plenty of options. But wanted something laidback and I had tkts already. Show began over 45 mins late. The first 3 acts were average, you had to force yourself to laugh. Was hoping that as the night progressed, things would get better. Most of the comedians came on the stage w/ NO jokes and spent the time just messing w/ the audience. One high school prom guy who looked old. The only act who seemed prepared had jokes that weren't funny anyway. I almost dozed off. The MC was funnier than the acts themselves but he said the same jokes sometimes. Many ppl left quite pissed & were verbal about it. At 3:00AM, finally gave up & didn't even wait for the headliner. What did we do to deserve this?
DUDE! How freakin' funny! – All I have to say is, this stuff was off the chain yo! I had the best time! I even brought my homies back and my girl too! The comics and the drinks were the ultimite! I would definitly tell all your friends serious yo!
fabulous fabulous fabulous! I had the BEST time! – Oh my goodness! My date took me to this place and at first I was like, is this some kind of joke? and then I was laughing my hiney off the rest of the night because this lil' NYC comedy joint was the BEST date I ever experienced. Between the hysterical comedians and the great food and tasty drinks, I give this place ten laughs up! I have NO idea why anyone could say a darn thing bad about this place! Now my boyfriend and I frequent this place at least once a month to rekindle that first date and laugh our cahonees off! A definite must go! Comics to watch: Janice Mesitty (SOOO funny!), Russ Mineve (cute and funny!), Mike Yard (I died laughing!) Thanks ny comedy club for such a great time over and over again!
User review by lilprincessjenny – REALLY HORRIBLE lineup of so called "comedians." About 12 comedians performed in 2 hours, each person equally bad. The only thing worse than listening to their jokes was listening to the MC who hosted the show. I couldn't wait for the night to end! I only laughed at how BAD they were, not at how FUNNY they were. There were about 14 people in the audience and most started to leave before the show was over. To be fair, I went on a Thursday night, maybe that's one of their slow nights. I don't know for sure, but I know I personally would not go there again.
Funny Performance – A wide variety of comics come here and are always a great laugh. A nice change of pace as opposed to the bar scene!
