My husband, brother and I walked out of The Curfew last Saturday night during intermission. Wasn't funny at all. So disappointed. Also, the seats were terrible. Springs sticking into our bottoms. Called and emailed a manager about this and no return call or email. Waste...More

We saw the Instagram show (Higgins). A very nice compliment to our weekend of Anastasia and Dear Evan Hansen. This is improv comedy; live without a net. It is not a scripted, sculpted Broadway show. UCB is a small, intimate theatre and we loved the...More

Comedians were trying out new material so show was uneven although 4 out 6 of them made me laugh heartily. Price was right, wine was good and seats were fairly comfortable. Will definitely return.

We walked out during the intermission on the improv night. Very weird. Not funny at all and hard to follow.

It was good to see once, but I wouldn’t go back and would struggle to recommend. Entertaining at times, but a struggle at other times. The bar sold water only...I think alcohol would have helped.

We were lucky enough to attend the 730 show on Saturday, 11/25, which is one of the last Saturday night shows in Chelsea. Move to Hell’s Kitchen will be too hot to handle. Improv is so real! For the talent you would think you just...More

Small simple intimate venue. Many shows in and out every evening. We saw “The nights of our lives”. Led by a great MC four comics took turns telling personal stories. All in only an hour long but super funny and just the right amount of...More

Too bad we had to wait outside (in the cold) to get free tickets. Thankfully, they said to come back in an hour for the show. Usually, a guest performer will come to the theater to act with the Improv group, Ugh, this time it...More

Wow is right! Such talent. We were a bit lost at first as the age group is definitely well below ours (30’s) but the comedy is ageless. Improve was amazing and the night flew by as we were riveted. Don’t pass this up. Comedy knows...More

Pretty good improv on a Friday night. A great opportunity to watch live comedy in NYC for the price of a cocktail. Easy to order tickets on line. Drink prices inside the venue are very fair

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
