Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ironically a bit of a joke. Only a few moments of laughter last night ...thanks to the mc. Overall I found it sad that the majority of the comedians were super crude, perverse, derogatory, disrespectful. Do you guys not have some real humour or stories to pull out of your hat? How about some politics for example. Not one political joke. This place used to be fun. Hope some real humour will return. Hard job I know. I don't envy you. But in the meantime while you get some interesting life experiences. Get a day job?

The Classic always has good comedians and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. Having been there several times I recommend the tables for two.

A range of comedians so you don’t always know who is up next. It’s a typical comedy club and very popular. It gets pretty warm in there so be prepared. Enjoy.....

The Classic is one of those very well lived in, old school carpet type bars. The venue has a front and back bar. The Back bar deals to the punters lucky enough to have a ticket, front bar is for those who are waiting for a show. This is my type of Bar, the old carpet reminds me of many days and nights drinking in small front bars around Melbourne in the glory-days before Bimbo Deluxe spewed its commercialism all over Brunswick st.
The Classic is exactly a Classic! Show featured 19 comedians the night I was there. 17 of which were really funny. Kiwis can bring the laughs, world class funnies, great crowd revved up by a professional, served by hardworking staff and the Classic comes complete with clean toilets. I mean seriously what more could anyone ask for. Drink prices are about what you would expect and quite normal for the area. possibly a favourite, could be in the top 5 bars I`ve been to here in Auckland. absolutely recommended for groups of 6 or so. I like the way the staff fill the back bar room at ticket time. unique shuffle of smaller groups into larger groups, tables sit 6, punters are distributed to tables with spare seats, this is great if you are one of those confident easy to talk to type people or are looking to meet the like minded who enjoy a laugh. luckily the place is full of em.

There’s a variety of acts, times and days and you can spend some time down here without spending much money! Many of my favourite comedians have stepped up on this stage and these acts are going to get you talking.
It’s a dark little venue and it’s a bit grotty (seriously - I hope the stains on the curtain only arrived this week and it would really set the scene if someone made the effort to light the table candles) but the walls of fame are really interesting and there’s a little bar inside and out. Arrive early for seats up the front (healthy self-esteem required). Bathrooms are limited and need work.
Our night was compered by Brendon Lovegrove who is brilliant at crowd warming and works really hard.
Have fun! Laugh hard!

A very fun night out! My first live comedy show and it was great, we went to the comedy all stars at 7.30 with an excellent MC (Pax) and 3 other comedians. The first and last were just hilarious and it was great having a real belly laugh. We were a group of 7 with 3 generations and all of us loved it. Simon & Pax had me crying I laughed so much, it was excellent fun. Only one guy was borderline but overall I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of them all. The building is old and dark and slightly dingy but has a great vibe about it. Only con is the seats, they numb your bum. Otherwise would have given 5 stars. Check out NZ's great talent, for $30 you can't go wrong

It was one of our first things we did coming from Germany to NZ and we loved it. $5 entrance on a Monday, great wine, cozy location where you meet new people since you get put on a table with other people. Great acts. Definitely recommend it to everyone.
