Laughed the entire show, it was our first time and we will be back

Laughed the entire show, it was our first time and we will be back only thing we didn't like was that they made us sit front row and refused to move us after we asked :(

Such a fun place to go and the prices are always very reasonable. I have visited here to see many performances both by professional comedians and even on open mic when a couple of my friends were taking part.

As a special birthday gift my son treated me to the comedy of Pablo Fransisco. It was my first time there. Great show! I plan on returning in the near future.

This is a great little venue to see a comedy act. The place isn't huge so every seat in there will be good but it can get a little crammed if there is a huge crowd. It is definitely worth it! We saw Bert Kreischer who was absolutely hilarious and worth the price of admission. They have a decent beer... More

I heard about this new place on the radio and decided to surprise my wife with their dinner and show special for 2. Parking was plentiful on the old cobblestone street and in the adjoining lots. The restaurant/bar is small (about 70 seats) and in a modern décor. The menu was quite amazing from the appetizers all the way to... More

Helium should stick to what it knows - comedy. It is difficult to know where to begin with Elements bar and restaurant at Helium. I purchased the Dinner and Show Package for two ($93.99 when all is said and done without drinks) for my husband's birthday this past weekend. Thankfully we were able to find free parking in front on... More

I have visited here many times since moving to Buffalo and it's always a good time! Most often I visit to see a headliner but each and every time the comedians that perform beforehand are as funny or better performers than the one I came to see! The staff is quick and efficient with drinks and food but bar service... More

Helium is great for laughs and often offers free admission for up to 4 people with VIP status. However, the waits tend to be a bit long to get the free tickets and then there is a 2 item minimum per person per table. So during the wait, if you grab dinner in the restaurant, you would still have to... More

I've been to helium at least 10 times and have had a great time. However, I went to the dirty dozen show on 12/15/16, and it was terrible. They had 12 comedians that came out and shared their story on how they found out that there was no Santa. It was the worst comedy show I've ever seen. We sat... More

The club atmosphere was perfect to see a comedian! Drinks were reasonably prices as well as food. The tickets were not too expensive either, $23 each+ surcharge and we had to pay $10 to park-which is often the case for bigger cities. All costs were as describe by the Helium Comedy Club. It was a lot of fun!
