We came here because of the name “Gotham”. We ended up watching a graduation class for the Manhattan school of comedy. It was great to see the aspiring comedians honing their craft! Best of luck to all!

The comedians were funny and I had a good time on a Tuesday night. I was able to just walk in right before the show.

Gotham Comedy Club-bottle of laughs We went to an early show, usually lesser known or novice comedians performing without pay in order to hone their craft. The vintage room was cozy. The mc lady was not good at introducing each comedian at all. I’m not...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

We prebooked for a weekend night, and it was a full house. It's a popular place! To secure a table, I'd prebook.
