About New York Comedy Club

We deliver the quintessential New York stand-up comedy experience: a comic, a mic, a brick wall, and room packed with fans. At our clubs, rising stars share the stage with the biggest names in comedy, so you never know who might drop in: Hannah Berner, Ronnie Chieng, Pete Davidson, Chris Distefano, Janeane Garofalo, Nikki Glazer, Judy Gold, Kevin Hart, Jessica Kirson, Matteo Lane, Hasan Minhaj, Tracey Morgan, Aparna Nancherla, Andrew Schulz, and Sarah Silverman… to name just a few.

Since the opening of our original Midtown venue in 1989 and our East Village location in 2018, New York Comedy Club has become the only comedy club in the country to have two stages in the same city under one name. We’ve been at the heart of the New York comedy scene for more than three decades, and remain dedicated to the work, to the talent, to the community, and to preserving the exhilarating “anything can happen” vibe that is unique to live comedy. Grab a seat and bucket of popcorn and get ready to laugh.

“This Manhattan hotspot is super traditional with brick walls, neon signs, and classic theater lighting. This club is unapologetically New York City—authentic, no-frills, and just plain awesome.” —Gotham Magazine

“With two locations on the East Side, these clubs host multiple nightly shows that feature up-and-comers you might recognize from their late-night TV appearances or hit podcasts.” —The New York Times

“New York Comedy Club has that ‘classic’ look with a brick wall behind the stage, a candlelit showroom and traditional drink menu. High levels of talent are there!” —Secret NYC

“The New York Comedy Club has been one of the pillar clubs in NYC for over three decades. A consistent place to get a good laugh. … They currently have two comedy clubs in NYC, one in the East Village and another in Midtown.
