The comedians were all fantastic and represented a wide range of ages, and topics. Every one of them made my husband and I laugh out loud. The service was excellent and the food and drinks were better than average for comedy club fare. The seating...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...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.

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.

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...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...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...More

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.
