NEVER BUYING FROM THEM

By NYCGIRL420 on 3/9/2014

  • No, I would not go back!

I will never be buying from them. While walking on 42nd between 8th and 7th. A sales man who works for them bombarded me with; "Guaranteed you'll smile." I ignored him where it then escalated to; "Have you even smiled all day? You need to know how to have a good time. You look miserable. YOU SHOULD GO KILL YOURSELF." I never responded to the man in fear I was dealing with a psychopath. But I want everyone to know how highly unprofessional this place is, if they have these kinds of people working from them. I will never be buying from them, and have reported this young man to their site.

Sadly crude and disappointing. Know of the comedians performing, I'd say.

So it started off fine. The standard classic sexist/racist jokes were prevalent, which were obviously all in good fun. Had some laughs. But it was when the third comedian came up, who started his rant with a voice mail (from an ex girlfriend I'm presuming), that got everyone's blood boiling in the room. and I say everyone because I didn't hear a sound from the audience throughout. This guy was not funny. He was just crass. He didn't even make perverted jokes. He just threw a handful of raunchy, boorish visuals at us and left the stage. He had visibly gone through something awful earlier that day. The friend I was with pointed out that the poor guy just took all that anger out on the group of strangers before him. I wish I could remember this guy's name (he was the 3rd guy who performed at the 12 o' clock show, last Thursday night - just saying). ah well. Overall, not a great experience- left me annoyed. I'm just glad we made an executive decision to dodge the waitress and run for the exit right after his rant without buying the 2 drink minimum. Not worth it. Maybe the fourth guy would've been funny. But thanks to whatshisface, we will never know.

Not what we expected but it was ok

So here me and my fiancé were downtown NYC walking around with nothing to do looking for a spot to spend.a good time at. When we seen a guy at a corner selling tickets at a good price the only catch was that we had to buy minimum of 2 drinks per guest. As we got there I was a little disappointed in the atmosphere looked but as the drinks started coming and the comedians started talking me and my crew left satisfied we felt as if we got our money's worth.

Ha comedy club is where today's UK beat selling humor writer got his first break. Anyone lucky enough to catch him on stage has a unique perspective on his books that new fans miss out on. Ha is still the home of fresh new talent.

Very funny comedy show-best value in New York City

By NYCtraveler on 10/25/2010

  • Yes, I would go back!

We came to New York City never expecting to see a comedy show. We walked around Times Square for a good half hour on a Saturday night when a guy on the corner had a sign saying there was a comedy show for only $10. There was a two item minimum per person, but with the everything non them menu priced between $4-$10 this was the best deal in the city. There were 5 comics and we knew two of them from TV. Kevin Brown from 30 Rock and Shawn Cornelius from BET plus 3 others. It was a funny show and the room was packed. After the show, we were allowed free admission into the Dueling Piano show they have on the weekends. It was just like the show in Las Vegas. Considering how expensive all the Broadway shows are in Times Square, the HA Comedy Club is the best bang for your buck

No comedy, rude/bad service and con-games to cheat tourists

We got conned into going there by a guy on the street selling it saying "Comedy Central" people are performing. Once we got there we were a bit disappointed with the shabby atmosphere and almost empty waiting room. As it turned out, the show was not by anyone from Comedy Central, it looked more like an amateur gig. Most of the other people (5-6 total) who were there seemed to be workers there. There were 2 other guests who seemed to be confused just like we were. Anyways, once we got inside the room with the stage, we got the next surprise: We are supposed to buy at least 2 food/drinks per person + 16% tips!! We had just come from a $150 dinner and had no intention of eating or drinking any more, but apparently the purchase policy is strictly enforced. We were really upset because we were not told about this until we started sitting down for the show. Apparently there is fine print in a small sign in front, that no one can read because of the verbose text. When we asked why we were not told, they blamed the sales guy on the street. The girl who seated us was not happy that we did not like their con-game and she went off to 'complain' to her managers about our complaints. 'Managers' were two big guys sitting in front with a blank stare and did not know what to say. We left telling them to keep our ticket money. We did not bother to stay for the show because the it was becoming obvious to us that the place was a total scam.
