Comic Strip Live, New York City

3.3
Opened in May 1975, Comic Strip Live is the longest running showcase comedy club in the world. Seven nights a week top comedians you've seen on television and the silver screen take the microphone on our world famous stage and prove why New York Magazine calls us, “The most expertly booked club in the city.”

Many comedy legends have started their careers on our legendary stage including Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld, and more. The tradition of nurturing new comedians continues with regularly scheduled open mics, new talent showcases, and stand-up comedy classes. The new comedians you see on our stage today might be the stars you see tomorrow!

Voted AOL City Guide “BEST COMEDY CLUB”, Comic Strip Live features a light menu, full bar and intimate showroom. A new 9-foot projection screen makes it perfect for private or corporate events, movie screenings, and viewing parties.

  • Great environment, good tasting drinks, comedy makes the night. Not a place to eat when you're hungry however. Their food choice goes from a simple burger to a chips and melted cheese called "nachos". So if you get hungry when you drink make sure to bring some food. Haha.
  • Great comedy. Laughed for 2 hours. They serve burgers and nachos but the food is nothing to write home about. Come for the talent and drinks. Reasonable entry fee. 2 drink pp minimum
