Horrible experience with the staff. On the way to the comedy club, an overly aggressive man approaches my group to sell tickets to the show tonight. We don't really address him because he is so crass "what you mother f*ckers dont see me".

Wow. If you're reading a positive review, then it must be them employees/owner who are writing the review themselves. LOL. Based on the # of audience--obviously, this place ain't that great.

Me and my girls decided to go to this place on Thursday March 25th, 2010 @ the 12:30am showing. We were lured in by one of the promoter claiming that they have well-known comedians playing that night. I asked the workers if there were any people inside the place prior to paying for admission. They stated that there was a big crowd and push us in. We entered the room and wtf?? We made up one-third of the crowd. There was about 10 people in there plus us 4 girls. The crowd was so bad that the owner and the workers also sat in so that it will make the number look better. We were pretty excited and were expecting a good laugh. Thus, we were cheering a lot. The first "comedian" who had no jokes to tell was picking on us the whole night. Yes, we are Asian people. So the whole time the comedian was making racist remarks. There's a difference between racist remarks and racist jokes. And he could not deliver the latter. So after a while we decided to tune him out and avoid eye contact wishing for the next comedian. He noticed that we were ignoring him and so he picked on us nonstop. So after a while we got fed up and started to make rude "remarks" back. (We got him back really good)hahahah...Jokes on him. Obviously, the crowd knew their was tension between us and the first comedian. The second comedian comes on and then again this comedian has no jokes to tell. He starts making some racist Asian remarks and we were like wtf? Are all their jokes based on how the audience look that night? We paid our tab and walked out. This place FORCES you to buy 2 overpriced items, on top 16% gratuity. And yes, they keep a very close eye on you to ensure that you buy 2 items each. We asked the manager for refund (for the door) for the reason that we didn't stay all the way to the end. He then tells us that it is OUR fault for being "disruptive" and he even let us be loud when we first entered in. I didn't know that cheering was being disruptive. And he also blamed us for LYING regarding making racist remarks vs. jokes. So my cousin tells him, "Do you think that we're lying when she's crying?!?!"--pointing to me. Silent awkward moment and so my cousin tells the manager: "Fine, you can keep our $10 (each)." I'm so shocked that we paid over $100 and this is how we are treated. Now I understand why there was no locals. Go here if you want to get scam.

I bought my tickets online to see LMAO at Ha Comedy Club. I had previously seen the show last summer when it played at the other times square club. On the day I went it was a Saturday night and the show was almost sold out. I'm glad I got there early and got my tickets in advance because it's general admission and the better seats go quickly on the busier nights. There were two large groups of college students from VA and WI on the night that I went so that made it a lot of fun for the interactive parts. .My group was seated promptly in front of the stage. The waitress was very friendly and personable. That's something you don't get a lot of in New York City nowdays. The show began with a warm up from the MC/Host where he asked for a few ideas to get the crowd going. Then the cast came out and sang a hilarious blues song about having to pay taxes - (LMAO) Awesome! From there they did some interactive stuff involving two audience members on stage making sound effects for two actors. Everyone in the entire audience was roaring with laughter. The did a few other funny skits that I hadn't seen them do before. My favorite was the original musical where upon request from the MC the actors had to break out into song repeating the last sentence. Overall I think it is worth a trip to see this show at least once. I can't imagine anyone NOT liking this show. I was also able to get tickets at the student price online in advance through a special promotion. What I also like is that there is no drink minimums for this show. Most of us ended up order a drink in my group which were decent pours and reasonable priced drinks. On the way out after the show the entire cast thanked us for coming and were all very friendly. Great show. Great fun. I HIGHLY recommend checking this show out.

Cons: bathrooms ehh

Last weekend I attended LMAO with my family and LOVED it. Being an improv show, from what I understand the show is different every night. The show I attended was packed and it seemed like everyone in the crowd was laughing and having so much fun. I give the actors a lot of credit. I don't know how they can come up with all those rhymes for the songs on the spot! They were able to keep it smart without being vulgar or using any profanity. I didn't find anything distasteful as the previous review mentioned and we had 4 people under the age of 18 - the youngest being 7. My favorite part was when the actors dragged my youngest up on stage to make sound effects for the actors - I almost fell off my chair! I guess it's not for everyone but my family and "ham" of a 7 year old had the time of his life and so did I. LMAO

Cons: show could be a little longer

THE LMAO SHOW IS ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS in my opinion! DO NOT go see this show from what I experienced. It's one of the WORST SHOWS i've seen in a LONG time. The comedy club might be a decent host good comedians from time to time but the show LMAO is absolutely a waste of money in my opinion- I would recommend NOT seeing this show in my opinion. I hope this is fair warning for you to see before you possibly spend $50 on a ticket on a show that has little satisfaction for the viewer looking for a laugh - in my opinion. The entire audience included myself along with my 2 guests and about 6 other people. I asked for money back and the owner refused. Hopefully I'm able to alarm people ahead of time before they are dragged from Times Square to this theater to get their "discount" tickets right away which happened to me. Not a very happy customer. Shame on you LMAO.

The show started 20 minutes late. I came 10 minutes early. That was a 30 minute wait. I was quite agitated however David "The Voice" Stein and Amy Carlson, saved the day. VERY FUNNY!

These rating systems should offer zero's, cause that is definitely what the HA! comedy club was!!! Terrible place to go to. I don't understand how others give this place an average of 4 stars. they must have their own staff writing in to boost up their rating. The place absolutely sucked. It was definitely a waste of an evening. If you are into comedy, do some research ahead of time. I don't mind paying $$$ to see a good show, but if I knew ahead of time I would rather have gave my money to the homeless guy outside of the place!

Whenever my friends and I are in the city on a week day, we always manage to go here. We sing we laugh we drink and we have a great time after a long day of work. We love this place. Great for friends, and meeting new people all over the world.

The place is a dump and the owner is a cheat. It's always dead, never anyone in the joint. Stay away!

Be fore warned! This place was horrible! I went to support a friend of mine that had a gig there. Besides being a complete dump, our waitress could not seem to keep up with drinks in a room of maybe 20 people. (And I understand! I used to be a New York City waitress in a really busy restaurant!)
Anyway, she came around to get our drink order for the first round before the show (it was a 2 drink minimum), which was ok. For the second round she completely ignored me and my two friends, who were sitting right up front, despite trying to get her attention several times. We finally got her attention and ordered about 20 minutes before the show was over. Instead of getting our drinks, she proceeded to pass out the checks to all the tables.
Next thing we know, the show is over, and all my friends want to leave (this place is not that fun to just hang around in). Well, I still didn't have my second drink that I'm required to buy so I ask the waitress and she's having them brought over, a good 5 minutes after the lights go up. And she had already charged me for the 2 drinks.
I proceeded to get the manager to see if he would just take off my one overpriced beer that I didn't receive. I was extremely diplomatic, being very careful not to make the waitress look bad even though it was her fault. The waitress and bartender were incredibly rude to me and saying "who do you think you are? why do you think you can be treated differently than all the other patrons?" I'm pretty sure my 2 friends and I were the only ones who did NOT get to enjoy our 2nd drink before the show was over.
The manager was not much help either, just kinda stared at me blankly saying he wasn't going to do anything.
Bottom line, these people don't care, they don't have repeat customers! I guess I could have thrown a bigger fit, but that's just not my style.

THIS PLACE IS A SHITHOLE AND IS THE WORST "COMEDY CLUB" IN NYC!! The managment people (Anthony, his fat wife Vikki, and bald Michael) are all cheats!! There business deserves to go down.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!! Unless you are completely wasted before you step foot into this disgusting, dark and creepy "comedy club" you will not enjoy yourself. The comedians are absolutely terrible...def not what you call comedy. I guess you get what you pay for...

My husband and I were walking through Times Square when a guy handed us a coupon for the club. We'd been to the Comic Strip and other clubs before so we thought we'd give this one a try. Not all the comics were that funny (still better than the club on the Upper West Side, though) but there were two Seans in the show (my husband's name is Sean so I remember). The 'black' Sean did jokes about scaring people in a tanning salon, and traveling, and the 'white' Sean did jokes about being Jewish with an Irish name and about his family. Both were hilarious and were nice enough to talk to us after the show. For five bucks we recommend it highly, but I have one complaint? I called the club to ask when the Seans would be back and they couldn't tell me.

Let me start by saying I think our previous visit to the Comedy Cellar scewed our perception of funny comics. We had a blast at the Comedy Cellar and decided to try HA! last minute. The comics were not that funny. I think we laughed maybe 5 times the whole show. I guess if we had not experienced the Comedy Cellar we would have thought these comics were funny but they weren't even in the same class at the other comics. I would not recommend this comedy club to anyone. If you are really looking for hilarious comedy check out the comedy cellar, reservations required.

My friend and I decided to come to HA! for a few laughs and that's exactly what I got.... a few laughs. The drinks were weak and there was only one out of the 4 comedians that actually made me laugh hysterically. I've been to comedy clubs before where I laughed from beginning to end. In addition to the one funny comedian, the host was very funny, I think they should have left him on stage all night. Overall, it was an ok comedy club.

I was walking through the city and got a flyer for this little comedy club. Me and my friends were like screw it lets go. I went there and every comedian was hilarious. I have never been so entertained. Ive been to Carolines and Dangerfields, but this place will always be my favorite. I have been there about 8 times already. All my friends love it. They send u deals through ur email every week. The comedians are nice to u. When the show is done they are outside and they will talk to. Check them out on myspace too. They just put up a site.

Walking in Times Square a guy handed us a flier saying that adm was FREE (YEAH)! So the husband and I decided to give the place a shot. We saw the host the host & 5 comedians, of which 2 were a flop and 2 were ok, and the Francisco the last comedian saved the nite. Service was good, the setting was ok, overall no complaints.

First time visit to New York went to Ha Comedy club, really enjoyed all of the comics, went on Thursday night not overcrowded at all. Really enoyed the entire evening. Would definitely go again and recommend to everyone. My husband and I visited the club July 27,2006.

I went to NY with my sister and two friends over Mother's Day weekend. I was in charge of the entertainment on Friday night. After finding HA! on this website and downloading 50% off cover coupons from HA!'s site, we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed.

We were a few minutes late for the 7:30pm show, so they let us in for free! The service was great, 2-drink min. not bad. I'm not a drinker, so I had a virgin diaquiri for $8 and a Sprite.

Five out of the six comics were hilarious! Great time had by all.

I visit this comedy club just about every year when I visit NYC. It is the best you will find. It is cheap and the comedians are AWESOME! THey treat you like family. You could go to Carolines and pay $20 just for admission and it is definately not as good as HA! COMEDY CLUB! I definitely suggest this club for families and friends.

I've gone at least 12 times. One comediene made me laugh so hard I peed. So uncomfortable going home on the train with wet pants! Cheap prices great laughs warm atmosphere. Only one time were the laughs so-so. Nothings perfect. I laugh better when the price is not going to break me. The place is a little tight but you won't mind when you are having so much fun. Be prepared to laugh till your face hurts! It's not a place for snobs!

From making reservations online to getting to the show I had great treatment.
Definitely something that I would recommend to anyone just looking for a decent comedy club with plenty of laughs without forking over your paycheck

Ha! Comedy Club is touted as the club where the most famous comedians of our time got their start. Whether this is true or not, Ha! has its share of funny and not so funny comedians. You may have seen some of these amateur comedians handing out flyers in Times Square for their show. They get credit based on the number of people they bring in from their advertising. There is a two drink minimum and it's a good way to spend an evening if you don't want to shell out the $200 you'd need to spend on tickets for two to a Broadway show.

My Friends and I head into to the city to see comedy shows a couple times a month. I discount tickets from one of their employees in Times Square. I had never heard of them before. We were a little skeptical about the prices and quality. It was only $7.00 and women got in free that night. We all ended up having a blast. All there comedians were funny as hell and were from MTV, HBO, The Tonight show etc... The drinks were inexpensive, $4.50 for a beer. Plus it was a 90 minute show. They sent me free passes for filling out one of the comment card and were definatly going again. Who knew this place existed.

Pros: cheap drinks, service is good, $7 cover from website

Cons: just not funny

.

The staff treated us very well. The drinks are worth it....not a high price, and very strong!! The comedians were good, and very down to earth after the show. This place makes you want to come back with friends. When I told one of the staff members that I wanted to come back, she had the owner come and talk to me......he gave me a handful of 2-for-1 tickets for my friends and a complimentary pass for me. He said he would work with anyone on the cover charge as long as we don't mind the two drink minimum. The entire staff was very nice. I think everyone should give HA! a chance.

These are the comedians you'll find in Times Square every day handing out flyers for free admission to their nightly shows. They have stand up amateur comedians every night, but even with free admission there is a two drink minimum. Most of these guys are pretty funny, but you'll have your occasional dud - mostly because it doesn't take a lot to be able to perform here. Still, it's a good time and it's cheap relative to other nightly New York activities.

This place isn't only the last word in comedy, it's the last place you should ever go to see comedy. What a dump. The PA system was so loud in the room I couldn't believe it. It made me really uncomfortable to hear young performers do so poorly at such loud volumes. Unfunny and really crumby.

People, people, people...Do yourselves a favor and check this place out! These are all hungry comics that actually work there. We went On Valentines Day 2005 and had a blast. Saw 6 comics and they were all HOT!!! Best part is you are NOT stuffed into dingy small tables with no elbow room. The drinks were good. Long Island Iced Tea $10. Cant beat that with a baseball bat!!. We are definitely going back. Our picture is on the VIP wall!!

Cons: none

The drinks, and the ertertainment is the best thing about this place. But I was very uncomfortable with having strangers breathe on me. The rooms are so small you end up with your knees knocking againist some guy and his wife visiting from Arkansas.

Just a few blocks from Times Square is a comedy club that out does many others. As a native California in town for the weekend looking for fun a comedy club seemed perfect. This one had great atmosphere, good comedians, great staff, drinks, and laughter. You were on the edge of your seat the entire time and each comedian involved the audience in different ways which I loved. Plus, the audience was a mixed crowd of both young and old so no one will feel out of place. It's welcoming to everyone and you leave with sore stomach muscles and a permanent smile. Every time I'm in town I'm going to HA and you should to whether a visitor or native because everyone needs good humor in their life!!

The laughter begins the moment you walk through the door. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly, and the service is outstanding. The energy level of each show is inspiring and the wide array of comics offer a diverse show with something for everyone.

It might be cheap to get in, but you get what you pay for!

The acts were really awful and the crowd even worse. Comedy is much more than sex, drugs and toilet jokes. And if that wan't bad, we were surrounded by several drunk kids who were talking to each other or on their cellphones during the acts, and otherwise being obnoxious.

I was so dissapointed because it was the first time I was introducing my foreign friend to stand up comedy in the NY. I've been to Carolines on Broadway and what a difference! The line-up is a 100 times better at Carolines as is the overall atmosphere.

Please, unless you're very drunk, want cheap jokes, and have completely lost your mind, don't go to this place!

Pros: Makes you hate comedy

Cons: , How about everything

I live downtown, and rarely make the hike to midtown, but i had heard quite a bit about Ha! so I thought I would make the trip. The show was absolutely hillarious. I was in tears. The drinks are not overpriced like they are in most tourist traps. It was only $5 for a beer, and that is how much you will pay at any bar in the city. plus, the barstaff was really laidback. It was so busy, but they were all having a great time. I was able to talk to a few of the comics, and they invited me to hang out with them after the show. It was great!

I read a good article about the club in the New Yorker, so I thought I should check the place out for myself. Needless to say it was unlike any comedy club i had ever been to. the drinks were cheap, and the atmosphere very laid back. the comics were hillarious. I ended up staying after and chatting it up with a few of the performers, everyone was so nice they even gave me free tickets to come back! I recommend this comedy club to anyone wanting to have a great night out in NYC.

One of the hot spots in Manhattan if you are looking for a good night out. I came here with a few friends on my birthday and had an amazing time. The comedians were top notch, the drinks were strong and the atmosphere was casual and friendly. We had some birthday shots and even got to chat with the comics after the show. Ha! is definitely one of the best clubs in New York!

Me and my wife have been to many comedy clubs before. We used to just expect the overpriced drinks and try to enjoy ourselves. Not anymore. This place is dirt cheap and funny as hell. One of experiences we ever had. Would absoutely go back.

Pros: funny, edgy, location and price

Cons: one person bathrooms

I found this cheap comedy club above average for the price; it only costs $5.00 to get in. The first joke of the night was the finger food, which no matter what you order. they all taste the same. The comedians were all pretty good though. The comedy room was a little bit tight, but I did not mind because I had a lot of fun.
I certainly recommend this place if you are looking for casual fun on a tight budget.

Funny, funny, funny...I have been to many comedy clubs in NYC and this one had seven or eight great comics. There were no tradiotnal "headliners", but they were all respectable working comics.
The best part was that it only cost five bucks and the drinks weren't expensive either!

For you young yuppise looking for a place to hangout on a Thursday after work with firends and have drinks for $3. Try the comedy club located on W 46th street. The best place I have been for only $5. The most friendliest and cozy place with $3 drinks till 8 in the evening. The comedy is great and the service very fast and efficient. Perfect place to be hanging out with co-workers after work or just hang out with friends singing along to the songs of Van Halen, Garth Brooks and Duran Duran and so much more. We all had a good time after work on a Thursday just laughing, singing and dancing till late night.

In a four week period I went to Ha! Comedy Club seven times. The staff is great, Anthony the Owner is a big teddy bear, and the comedians are wonderful! Being a regular at this place is great, you'll stay after the show ends, hang out with the comics and Anthony, and just have a great time! Better than all the other clubs I've been to in the city that just want your money and then send you off.

This place feels more like a bar then a comedy club. Actually, it IS a bar with a tiny stage that otherwise would be reserved for a couple of small tables. They get most of the tiny audience in off the street by telling you that you'll see comics from tv, when in fact you'll see mostly amateurs.
I'd rather pay an extra $5 and go to one of the
real clubs.

It only costs $5 so what do you expect? With that said, if you're looking for entertainment but don't want to spend a lot, I'd recommend Sweet Carolines. If you're looking for a belly aching good time, then go somewhere else. There were a couple of good jokes but nothing spectacular. For $5 and two drinks, I've been to worse and spent a whole lot more.
