Helium is great for laughs and often offers free admission for up to 4 people with VIP status. However, the waits tend to be a bit long to get the free tickets and then there is a 2 item minimum per person per table. So during the wait, if you grab dinner in the restaurant, you would still have to... More

I've been to helium at least 10 times and have had a great time. However, I went to the dirty dozen show on 12/15/16, and it was terrible. They had 12 comedians that came out and shared their story on how they found out that there was no Santa. It was the worst comedy show I've ever seen. We sat... More

The club atmosphere was perfect to see a comedian! Drinks were reasonably prices as well as food. The tickets were not too expensive either, $23 each+ surcharge and we had to pay $10 to park-which is often the case for bigger cities. All costs were as describe by the Helium Comedy Club. It was a lot of fun!

I am at the Helium Comedy Club. Sadly, it was not a pleasurable experience upon just being seating for the first time! I am incredibly disappointed in my first encounter with this establishment! I arrived early and got seated way in the corner next to the wall. I could not see anything! I asked management if they could simply make... More

This is a gem of a place in downtown Buffalo. I have seen several excellent comedians which include Ralphie May, Gilbert Gottfried, Tammy Pascatelli and many more. The place is small and intimate enough where you get a chance to enjoy the comedians. Tyey offer typical bar food which is decent they also have a good selection of beers and... More

We have seen some of our favorite comedians here...Jim Norton (the most brilliantly talented man on the planet), Jim Breuer (as funny as he is genuinely nice), Gilbert Gottfried, Colin Quinn, etc. The two drink minimum is standard at pretty much any comedy club. Food here is pretty decent too, although I could never understand why anything other than finger... More

I went to see Jen Kirkman here recently. The club is nice, the staff were friendly. The lining up could do with a bit of work, lots of people milling about before the doors opened. Some instructions would go a long way. We all got seated pretty fast though and the wait staff were generally attentive and responsive. The food... More

Absolutely a must do for a date night. Took my wife and another couple there and it was amazing. the food was finger bar food, the drinks were good and the service was great. the only problem they had was the way that they did ticket seating was kind of a cattle rush.

Saw DLM here and enjoyed the show very much. The bar, food, and service is very good. The wait staff was very good. Only issue we had was the very confused man that didn't seem to have any idea what to,go when we tried to pick up our tickets. Luckily the guy that seemed to be in charge of the... More
