New York Comedy Club (Boca Raton)
***** New York Comedy Club, 8221 Glades Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33434 (561) 470-6887.
Got a great idea for you guys…New York Comedy Club in Boca Raton.
The joint is located in the back and I do mean “back” of a Boca Raton strip-center. Thursday-Saturday nights, New York Comedy features…headliners and newcomers. You need a “ticket” to get in…and you have to “buy” 2-menu items….either drink or food. Tickets range in price…but “just a real good educated guess here”…if you call in advance, you can usually score complimentary passes. On the food…decent enough. Nothing gourmet…appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, desserts. Trust me, you won’t get tomaine poisioning. As for food-drink prices, surprisingly reasonable.
Last Saturday night, I was comped 4-tickets to see comedienne, Judy Tenuta. Had an absolute blast at the 11pm show and the whole bill with tax-tip was $44…4 sodas-2 coffees-2 appetizers (pot stickers & chicken wings). Take a look at the website at www.nyccboca.com for schedule/menu/prices.
I repeat…you need a ticket to get in. I repeat…if you are real pleasant, you probably can get “comp” tickets, unless we are talking a major-major headliner like Robert Klein or David Brenner.
Terrific place. Real casual. Super pleasant owners, managers and waiters/waitresses. Decent enough food-prices. As for “the show”…it all depends on who you see.
