Fantastic spot to enjoy a good laugh with some funny comedians and a great house band. This is a great intimate setting to see some comics. Worth visiting.

We originally were going to go to the 8:45 show at Comedy Cellar, but it was already booked by the time I made reservations two weeks out. So we ended up at The Village Underground location for the 9:30 show. My husband and I weren't sure if the VU location would be as good as the original, but it was.... More

We were on vacation in NYC from out of town and went on the recommendation of a friend. It was amazing!! All 7 comedians were great, each one different. Judd Apatow was a guest. My jaw literally hurt after an hour. And its an amazing value - we made a reservation on their site for free (and without even leaving... More

As a lifelong fan of stand up, I was excited to see the clubs in NYC. Chose this club because of their line up. They really know who to book! Saw Colin Quinn at a Wednesday, 7:00 show seemingly just riffing out ideas for new material. For someone seeking a polished show, this would not have been the right choice... More

First time ever in a Comedy Club but will now be a regular. All the comedians were either almost stars, or very well known (Letterman, Saturday Night Live, Colin Quinn) and all were great. My jaws hurt from laughing almost constantly through the night.

Went to an 1130 show. The comedians and host were fantastic. The service was fine. It's crowded in there and our waitresses was mediocre, but the great comedy was well worth it.

Been to the comedy Cellar many times so we wanted to check out the secondary location. This is right around the corner from the original, so basically the same spot. This one has a band set up, maybe a bit bigger, but overall looks the same. We sat right by the stage and enjoyed some up and coming acts and... More

Being huge fans of stand up comedy, we had to check out the Comedy Cellar. We decided to try their new room, as the showtimes worked best with our itinerary. The room looks identical to the original, and there is a great atmosphere. The band was also very impressive. Gary Gulman is by far one of my favorite comedians and... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
