.y husband and I went twice after enjoying the first show so much. The comics and host were excellent and so incredibly funny. Very rude so the comedy is not for the faint hearted or those easily offended. It's dark and cramped but didn't bother...More

Great fun, except a drink minimum and you will be squashed in. We waited all night on the waiting list and it was worth it! If you are trying to get in on the waiting list (as in you don’t have Pre-booked tickets), go very...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
