For my birthday celebration last weekend, me and Todd (my hubs) and 4 other couples went to the Gotham Comedy Club on 23rd Street in NYC to see comedian Aries Spears. You remember him from Mad TV and as Cuba Gooding, Jr.'s brother in Jerry Maguire. The Chicago born, New Jersey bred comedian was HILARIOUS to say the least.

Although I'm sure I've past the club a million times and never noticed, Gotham is well worth the visit. Tickets start at $25 and up with a 2 drink minimum but I'd recommend the VIP ticket for prime seating, no lines, open bar and an appetizer for $115 per person (ahem, it was my birthday).
Gotham is not at all "seedy" like some small comedy spots tend to be. It was well lit and clean with a courteous staff (despite the 20-something brunette waitess in need of an etiquette refresher course). Most I've attended don't have a private party room either and separate bar/lounge area.
So next time you are in the mood for a good laugh, see who is performing at the Gotham Comedy Club. Click here for more information on upcoming acts, etc.
Peace and Blessings,
