Last night I ended up going to my first comedy club. Caroline's on Broadway. Good place (although I have nothing to compare it to). A bit expensive, but that's to be expected considering where its located. If you've never been there, check out their lineup. Anyways, I'm making this thread because I'd like to check out other comedy clubs in NYC. I understand a comedy club isn't like a restaurant where you can say "the food is great there". Of course the lineup will change at these clubs, but I'm assuming that most clubs have a reputation that follows them because of the type of comedians that go there.

I'll be checking out the Comedy Cellar tonight. Do others have any other recommendations? Or is there any other comedy club you've been to (not necessarily in NYC) that you've enjoyed?

So in response I told her that if a key opens lots of locks, then it's a master key. But if a lock is opened by lots of keys, then it's a crappy lock. That shut her up."

You nailed the 2 best in one post, BP. Caroline's is the cream of the crop in NYC and the Cellar gets amazing surprising guests working on new material. I've seen Seinfeld and Dennis Miller there on nights it was supposed to be much lesser known names, just working on new stuff. Pretty awesome.
:(



I still have no idea what's going on....

Not that I'm really adding anything here, but Caroline's is across 50th and B'way from my office.

I don't know if its still there, but we always had fun times at The Gotham Comedy Club. Once we saw Chris Rock come and do a surprise set at Caroline's.

Will check it out.

Went to Comedy Cellar last night. Let's just say I think I may have found a second home. I will probably be making many visits there. I coincidentally went there only because I saw the name of a comedian I liked and ended up getting more than I bargained for. I even got to see Jim Norton and he wasn't even in the lineup! My favorite though had to be John Mulaney. Never heard of him before, but boy was he good. Don't think a second passed without the room cracking up. And Dan Naturman was the other guy who stood out as well. All new names to me. But I'm sure I'll get familiar with them in due time.

Going to add "Upright Citizens Brigage Theater" to the list. Good improv comedy.

I think Amy Poehler started that one, and that's how she got on SNL.

But, wait, you implied it was funny, so that can't be right....:lol:
