I've only been to Caroline's once and that was because a friend of a friend was performing so I got in for free. Prior to my visit I've been told many good things about the place and about all the famous comedians that just show up at Caroline's. Sadly, when I was there, no one famous showed up. One of the comics was on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" because I remembered her from the show, but that was about the extent of it. Drinks were expensive, but I guess if you factor in that the tickets were free, it evens out. Overall it was a pleasurable experience.
