Horrible!! I went last night (weeknight) and to say the comedians were awful is an understatement. The emcee didn't even know who they were. They had no credentials, nothing funny to say and awful ...presence. I'm sure open mike night wouldn't have been as bad. In addition to the admission price my wife got a watered down martini and I got a burger for $12 that was clearly one of those microwaveable ones you buy at a 7-eleven for $2. I've been going to this club for decades and it's always been at least decent. This was an embarrassment. The night cost $90 for the two of us. The waitress deserves her tip but I want a refund. Don't ever go on a weeknight. Go to the place in the village that does 3 shows a night with real comics. See More

CS Live owner, Richie Tienken is an NYC Comedy Capo dei Capi (NYC Comedy Godfather, though more svelte than Brando). Anyone with the wisdom and vision to keep the veteran comic geniuses, Gladys Simon ...and Bob Warnick to manage mics knows the comedy game very well. See More

Many known comedians got their start here. Pro: Exposure to a lot of funny comedians (good times) Cons: The food is over priced.

Had a great time. Every comic was funny.
2 drink minimum makes it pricey but worth it.

The Comic Strip Live is a great venue for comedy lovers and comedians. Some of the top comics got their start there and perform there as well. Gladys Simon runs her own shows there and she is wonderfu...l as a manager, coach, mentor and friend. See More

My first time there went to support a friend, it was nice but the seating was too close together. I felt like we were sitting in top of each other

Loved the comedy show. The waitress failed to tell us there was a 2 drink per person minimum. Then she tells us we still need 3 more things added to the bill. First off the nachos were stale the so...da was flat and the menu was not that good for a 2 drink minimum. The drinks were so watered down not work the money we spent on a check..... See More

There is a 2 drink minimum in addition to the ticket price, and the drink prices are a bit high, as you might expect. The comedy is good though, and 2 of the comics in our line up were excellent. Dece...nt and very friendly service from waitstaff and really everyone. A pretty positive vibe. Had a great time. See More

The comedians were hilarious. They did a really great job. But our waiter suck!!!! He did such a horrible job he should not be working there. Left our table waiting for drinks and food half way throug...h the show. Failed to let me know the frozen Margarita machine was not working. Everyone around us had their food and drinks besides our table. Then lets us know the nachos won't come out on time. OF COURSE NOT !!! Made my experience at this cool comedy club horrible. The only thing that keep me from walking out were the comedians. So sad people like that can make your business look so bad. See More

If I could give 0 stars, I would.

Came to the show last night for my 8th visit to The Comic Strip. Long story short - out party had to get up to get all of our own drinks & when we complained to the ...wait staff he was EXTREMELY rude and told us to chill because we "aren't famous."

Then, a joke was said on stage that some would argue is "too soon" so a member of the audience called out "moron" to the comedian.
The comedian then told us we were all a "terrible fucking audience" and to "get the fuck out." Of course, this emptied the crowd.

Upon leaving, we refused to pay our full bill for the terrible experience, but were then threatened the manager would call the cops.

NEVER will I be back. Trust me - much more better comedy venues in NYC. Save your money.

The show was sold out which was great! But it took FOREVER to get a drink or food! The waiter took care of certain tables! There's a MISUSE of staff as you look around and see staff watching and enj...oying the show. Then came the bill how do you charge me $8 dollars a soda but also charge me $20 unlimited drink and only pass bye twice for the whole show! Then the food should be hot if it's freshly done! Glad the comedians were extremely funny! See More

Fantastic comedy club in NYC to perform and work out any new stand-up material. The audiences at Comic Strip Live appreciate the comics and make for a fun evening. The owner is one of the nicest peopl...e I've ever gotten to know. Happy 40th Anniversary Comic Strip Live. The first comedy club in the city will have many laugh from years to come. See More

The show was awesome very funny. 'My first time here the waitress was ok but come on people the prices are ridiculous. Two drink minimum I understand you have to pay staff but the place was crowded an...d when we was leaving there was a crowd waiting to come in. I'm sure with your drink prices you don't need a 2 drink minimum See More

The owner of this club stood by and watched as I was attacked by some of his drunk and obnoxious patrons. Please only go to this club if you've decided to end your life but suicide by cop is to messy for you.
