Don't fall for their "New Years extravaganza". First we waited outside for half an hour in the freezing cold because they oversold tickets and couldn't find seats for everyone . There was supposed to be a buffet but it was closing down by the time...More

Went to this little cozy comedy club location with my husband and some friends and we just loved it so much! The club host some of the funniest upcoming comedians and well established comedians as well; you'll love coming again and again.

I understand a 2 drink minimum but having to wait 25 minutes after the end of the show is pathetic, especially if you are paying cash. On a posture note the drinks were good

Always a good time coming here, great prices and location. Beats the trek into NYC when you have a great comedy club in the heart of New Brunswick.

Tickets vary based on the line up. If a celebrity is the headliner, tickets are usually $20-25. You have a food and drink minimum also.
