New York Comedy Club has been serving up the best comedy in the city to the Gramercy neighborhood and all of Manhattan since 1989. The classic brick wall behind the stage, candlelit showroom and traditional drink menu all pay tribute to its legacy. Under new ownership since 2014, NYCC still features the best comedians in the city 7 nights a week, plus an updated front bar with pre- and post-show drink specials and whole new fun, anything-can-happen vibe. Our regulars include Andrew Schulz, Christian Finnegan, Sherrod Small, Kurt Metzger, Ari Shaffir, Ricky Velez, Yamaneika Saunders, Carmen Lynch, Sarah Tollemache, Emma Willman, James Mattern, Aaron Berg, Mike Cannon, Jon Laster, Josh Gondelman, Matt Pavich, Matt Richards, Corinne Fisher, Krystyna Hutchinson,Wendi Starling, Liza Treyger, Mike Lawrence, Gary Vider, Phil Hanley, Sam Morril, Joe Machi, Joe List, Bonnie McFarlane, Subhah Agarwal, Kate Wolff, Lenny Marcus, Pat Dixon, Chuck Nice and more

We had a great evening at this comedy club. The comedians were good, the MC was funny, and things rolled along well. The downside is that it went a bit long. Comedians stopped... read more

My wife and I bought tickets from a chap in times square for this venue after he convinced us that it would be a welcome destination on our trip and we were both very happy that we bought the tickets. The barmaid was very friendly and made us feel relaxed before going into the show. We were both worried that... More

I came here with my friends and my girlfriend a few weeks ago and had an AWESOME time! We went to a show and every comic just killed! We sat in the front and the host kept picking on us but it was hysterical. Don't sit up front if you can't take character assassination haha! And just when we thought... More

Great comedy! Comfortable seating in a really cozy, intimate space. Server was very cordial and quick. Decent drinks. We have no plans to return however. The front door man is rude. He tries to force you into a tiny next-door eatery that appeared to exceed fire code occupancy while waiting to enter the club. We chose to stand outside even... More

We are so sorry that what seemed to be a great comedy experience for you was soured by one thing. You rave about the comedy, atmosphere, and service, and it's really disheartening to hear that one negative thing has led you to give us a poor rating along with intent to never return? There is absolutely no reason for our... More

Every time I come into the city I make it a point to watch live comedy. I go to all the different clubs, but what impresses me most of the New York Comedy Club is that every time I am there they seem to always add something new that makes it even better than my last visit. The comedy is... More

We had a great evening at this comedy club. The comedians were good, the MC was funny, and things rolled along well. The downside is that it went a bit long. Comedians stopped by and were added to the show. They were funny, but after a couple of hours we needed an intermission. Better drink and food service would have... More

Thank You so much for your review and assessment. Our shows are typically an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes in length max, but during the weekdays we do what is called "Late Night", which is an extension of the normal show. It is an extra hour we add on for younger comics to develop and... More

Australian couple (24&23 years old) great night, we attended the 915 show and it was great. If you are in New York definitely a must do. They do have a $17 per person minimum drink spend, but over 2 hour period is easy to do.

This is one of the best experience I've ever had at any comedy club. There isn't one bad seat in then house, the comics were great, they actually had good beers!! ....and the overall energy of the club was awesome. It is very reasonably priced, especially when taking into account how much other attractions are in NYC. I will definitely... More

As expected with this type of venue there were some really good comics but there were also some very poor ones. Without straying into sexism I found the female comics very one dimensional. Either very crude , sexist , vulgar or making fun of their race. Move on ladies. there are other things that are funny. One of the funniest... More

Glyn, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you found the comedy to be inconsistent. Comedy is very subjective and some comics don't connect with everybody. We do hope you come back and check out another show, as we have a very full and wide variety of acts nightly. In regards to the 2 beverage minimum,... More

We bought tickets off the street for $30. We were a tad apprehensive as to what it would be like. We were told about the two drinks minimum but thought that sounded reasonable as we would have bought two or more each anyway. On arrival we noticed it was $10 for each drink. We think this is a joke considering... More
