We went on a Thursday night for $10 each and unlike other comedy clubs there is no food or drink minimum, which was great! I booked the "advanced seating: assigned" tickets which meant that we sat at a table instead of barstool seating. I felt...More

Really good comedy for an extremely affordable price in a unique setting. On the third floor of a Chinese Restaurant. It is a very intimate setting with great comedians. Had a blast!

I almost hate to review this place, since it will make it harder to get tickets. In brief, for less than $15, we go as often as we can for our dose of comedy. On Saturday nights, our favorite, there will be perhaps 8 or...More

Just when things couldn't get worse than Blue Man Group, we went to the comedy studio - supposedly renowned and deemed the best comedy place in Boston. We went on a "magic show" night. Lucky us!!! It was absolutely bad. I don't think there are...More

Fairly small venue above a chinese restaurant. However, $10 for two hours of comedy is great. The Thursday night we were there had about 10 different comics performing for about 10 to 15 minutes each. A couple were very good. One was awful. The rest...More
