I came here and had food (solo traveller) before seeing comedy downstairs later in the evening. The food was excellent and the bar staff kept me entertained all evening. Will definitely return next time I'm in NYC.

Great night out with 8 friends. 2 of the 5 comics I had heard of and seen on TV. The Host/MC was just as funny. Great time, great drinks, great crowed. My stomach hurt the next day from laughing so much.

This was excellent value for money! On a Monday night they have free shows, so we booked our seats in advance of our trip. The bar area is small but the drinks are not too expensive. Once we were seated the staff were very good...More

We went for the Midnight show on a Saturday night. Until the show is ready for seating, you wait out in the bar area and then head down into the stand up area which is very small and intimate. Almost all of the comedians were...More

We visited the Stand for a birthday celebration. The comedy is ok. Funny but not great. Food is average. Drinks just ok but what gives me pause is the lack of customer service. You are treated like you are in a group who just got...More

I don’t work for the Stand. I’m a patron just like you. Try calling the Stand & ask them. They may have a private party or a large group that night. It’s Holiday time.
