Based on reviews here, I went to Carolines with low expectations...and had a fantastic evening. Things to know up front: 1) There's a 2-drink minimum, and drinks are expensive. Even if you're just ordering sodas, be prepared to spend $30 on drinks during the show...More

Went to a show with multiple comics on 5/17. Paid a bit more for preferred seating. Well worth it- we were in the 1st row. You do have to buy 2 drinks a person- I was with my teens and do not drink much so...More

We saw 4-5 comedians. Easy to book reservation on the phone. We had great seats even though we booked late. Of course drinks are ridiculously priced in very small glasses. They say two drink minimum but I only ordered one. They offer food too but...More

We were here specifically to see Jeff Ross. We paid extra for VIP seating and thought it was worth it to be up close. If you're going to get food, stick with the appetizers and go out to dinner afterwards. It's a legendary NYC comedy...More

It depends on the comedian... they serve food and alcohol ... its probably at your discretion.

Unfortunately I have not seen any deals or discounts for Caroline's anywhere. Some of the other comedy places have discounted tickets but I'm not sure how good they are.
