Even comics who are regulars at the city’s other stand-up rooms have to work extra hard to get stage time at this venerable institution. Carolines is the best place to see marquee names, including sitcom-ready stars, familiar faces from the ’80s comedy boom, Friars Club–style spritzers and cable-special ravers. You’ll never see anything less than professional. Show times vary.

I don't think it's been updated since Bill Hicks last performance of his career back in '94...

As a visitor to NYC, I just didn't get how it can claim to be 'America's Premiere Comedy Nightclub' 

I know Comedy Clubs are dark and dingy, but this place needs a re-fresh. 

You might say, it's to see the talent, but on a Saturday and after the show,  a group of over 10 of us all felt we hadn't had a 'great night' and it just wasn't 'that' good.

It's hard to pin point what's wrong without actually going... and that's the problem, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Went on a Saturday Night.

Went to the Time Out Comedy Showcase and was laughing nonstop.  They had a great lineup with many comedians from Comedy Central. A great evening and event
