Reserved tickets are seats that we save for you in the showroom. Patrons who purchase reserved seats will be given the best available seats for the size of their party. These tickets can only be pre-purchased online.
General Admission tickets are on a first-come, first-sat basis. The earlier you arrive, the better your seating will be. General Admission seats may be pre-purchased online or you may make a reservation over the phone. General Admission tickets expire 45 minutes prior to showtime.
All reservations, including online purchases, EXPIRE 30 minutes prior to showtime, and ALL tickets are subject to release at this time. If you are running late, please contact the club so we can arrange to hold your seats.
The Lower Lounge, featuring a full bar with food and drinks, is open two (2) hours prior to showtime -- grab a bite and wait for your party, or simply indulge. Tickets also become available at that time. The Showroom will open 30 minutes prior to showtime. Punctuality pays dividends in fun!

Instead of a drink minimum, we have a two-item minimum in the showroom (e.g. 1 soda and 1 appetizer) which gives our patrons an opportunity to enjoy the food Helium has to offer. Beverages or food purchased in the lounge before or during the show do NOT count toward the two-item minimum.
Yes. Comedy is subjective and certain comedians are not for everybody. Watching a YouTube clip or reading the headliner's biography is a great way to get insight on the expected performance.
The showroom arrangement is similar to a cabaret theater – chairs surrounding tables, facing the stage. With friendly and discreet table service, we ensure you won’t miss any of the action.
Reserved ticket holders are given priority seating nearer the front of the house. General admission seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Shows are usually between an hour and a half and an hour and forty-five minutes.
Nice, casual attire.

Patrons may take photographs before or after the show. Taking photographs, filming, videotaping or other recording of shows without the written consent of the club and the artist is strictly prohibited. Patrons who abuse this policy will have all content erased and you will be ejected immediately.
