These dudes INVENTED something where there was nothing. Absolutely the highest praise for the curation and artistry that lives here. An instant institution!

Went there last night for the second time. I am somewhat hard of hearing and wear hearing aids and can usually hear fine with them. All three "comedians" last night used the mic the same way, they barely did, or they did real intermittently. It would have been nice if they had so their voices would come out the speakers so everyone could hear them. Anyway, I was disappointed and for this reason we probably will not return. Sad, because it's nice venue.

First time in Burlington and the reason was to see great comedy. VCC did not disappoint. Located in the basement of the Hilton Garden Inn(entrances outside of hotel), it's a nicely decorated space. Separate bar and show areas. Not a bad seat in the house. Didn't try the food, but drinks were very reasonably priced and potent enough. Good spot for an intimate experience with top notch comedy.

Best aspect of this venue are the front bartenders...skilled, pleasant and work as a cohesive team-backing each other up, visible high fives and support for each other.
The worst aspect is getting to your seat.... no organization, zero direction, people cutting the line...a complete cluster Fu(k.
Hard to consider going back

Locals and visitors alike owe it to themselves to check out this gem in the heart of Burlington, for lots of laughs and fun. We are consistently impressed by the great mix of local, regional and nationally know comedians on offer. A recent December visit to see Emo Philips had us snorting with laughter, and reminded us how refreshing it is to sit back and let VCCs well trained waitstaff seamlessly anticipate our needs with no lag in service or interruption of the show. Can a night out be relaxing and hilarious at the same time? You betcha.

Super fun place run by super nice people. One of the must do things in Burlington. Catch a show with national headliners, or local grown talent.

The comedian that we saw on 12/28 used humor that demeaned audience members, joked about skin color and cultural norms, etc. It was very uncomfortable and disappointing that this venue would bring someone like that. The opener (last name Murphy) for this guy was so much better and actually funny. While, the main comedian just made everyone tense. I would never come back here -- this venue needs to do better with vetting their people. Not to mention, the drinks were horrible.

Thank you, Nathan for accommodating the deaf and hard of hearing patrons. It was fun to catch one of your shows along with Nora interpreting for us! I hope to see another one of your shows in the near future!

Great bar, awesome service and all that's before you get into the performance space. It's intimate. Not a bad seat. They bring great acts and BIG names to our tiny city. Love the place!!

Worst experience ever!!! dont go here unless you like really tight overcrowded spaces to the point of questioning safe occupant levels, way too many people for the size of the room.
This place is a first come first serve place for seating we arrived early to wait inline to get good seats and were the 3rd Couple to go in after VIP went in however with 30 tables open we were seated in the back with no table.we asked to be moved before they let anyone else in. hostess was rude when we asked to be moved to a table.I guess everybody's money isn't equal here.

Their Harry Potter Roast was probably one of the funniest events I've ever been to! Plus the whole place was themed. The drinks were themed. We dressed up and sat at our house tables and had a blast! I've never been disappointed when going to a show here. And their bar is great too, even if you just want to stop on in for a drink. The people who work at the club are friendly and it's in a very walkable location with plenty of parking! Go to Tinder Nightmares. I've even had a friend take their standup class and went to her class's showcase - it was a hoot!

I have come here twice now for the Drew Lynch shows and they have all been amazing. Decent prices on drinks and snacks! There's no "minimum" on drinks which is amazing because most comedy clubs have 2 or 3 drink minimums! The sound quality was amazing. Seating was a little cramped but let's be real this is Vermont! Everyone here is gratuitous and kind about space and sitting so close. I highly recommend any show here and they do amateur nights where newer comedians and people who want to try it out have a platform!

I think the Vermont Comedy Club is a hidden gem. It has one of the best bars in town with a slew of great beers and cocktails. The comedians are always hanging out, which makes the atmosphere perfect and welcoming. Ticket prices are very reasonable, the atmosphere cozy and intimate, and the food it not bad (for a comedy club). A college student can always see a free show during the week when local comics and improv teams light up the stage. Attending the annual "Vermont's Best Comedian" contest is a no brainer. Don't hesitate to visit, what appears to be, Vermont's premiere comedy establishment.

Really awesome comedy club in downtown Burlington! My husband and I went in for the earlier Saturday show and we were able to grab our tickets as we were walking in. The space is small and they pack everyone in. There wasn't a bad seat in the house, although you will be a bit squished. My husband and I saw Pete Lee and he was hilarious, really great comedian and totally worth the ticket price. The openers were great too. They have a full bar and the waitresses try their best to get everything over to you in a timely manner. The bathroom line at the end of the show is another story, not timely at all. Just be prepared to wait a bit if you are headed that way before you leave. Drinks were good and reasonably priced for the venue. A great evening out in Burlington!

HUGE fan of this theater and community! Do yourself a favor and stop by!
Review by Jonez1 year ago
Never gonna complain about free entertainment. And this comedy show was just as good as other shows I have paid for in the past!
We went on a Sunday night and the first show was a few comedians. We didn't stay for the second show because it was getting late but it sounded fun: 2 guys doing Shakespear Improv. Next time we will have to check it out!
Upon entering the theater we were told to grab a piece of paper and crayons from a stack on a table. We had plenty of good tables to choose from inside and when we sat down there was a message to draw anything we wanted! It definitely helped pass the time and it was fun to tap into our inner child!
The comedians were all pretty funny. We did order the hummus which was just okay. The nachos looked good so I recommend those.
We will definitely be back if we are ever in the area!

I love VCC dearly. Such a welcoming community of hilarious and talented people. Take classes! Go to indie nights! Get involved! And the headlining comedians they book are insane! It always warmed my heart to hear the comics talk about how great the club was and they're right! Burlington needs more places like this! Go have a drink at the bar and see a show!
Review by Arnita Milandt2 years ago
We came here this past Saturday to celebrate a friends birthday. The atmosphere is so nice here. The walls are filled with different colored pictures of celebrities as you wait to enter. The comedy club is very well organized and gets a lot of touring, popular, funny acts. We saw Ryan Hamilton and he had two openers. The show lasted about two hours which kept us laughing all night long. There are small round tables which have table service for food and drinks. They sold coffee as well and didn't require a drink minimum. You must shut your phone off once the acts begin which is standard
Protocol. I had a wonderful time!

We came here on a date night for the first time and really had a great time! We weren't sure what to expect, but we got ourselves tickets to see a show and were ushered in just a few minutes after the show was set to start (traffic is a nightmare in Burlington right around then)
The space was nice, cute little two person tables with battery candles, but every seat was close to the stage and the a.c. kept things comfortable.
Comedians that night were all very funny and fro, what I saw of the food and the service, everything seemed spot on.
My only complaint is that the seating is close enough where, if the person behind you really gets laughing, there's a good chance you'll end up kicked or bumped a few times.
Other than that, we had a great time and will be back in the future!

Great to have a comedy club in Burlington! They bring in lots of talent - locally and nationally.
We've been twice and always had a wonderful time. My only advice - eat elsewhere. The apps aren't good at all and over priced. The wine selection is poor, but the cocktails and beer are okay.
