I have seen a show at the UCB theater every time I visit NYC. Assssscats 3000 is the longest running and best show. They completely improvise and the group is extremely talented. There are two shows - the 9:30 one is free but you will...More

We saw Jet comes to Cobsville & Hockey Cops at the Hell’s Kitchen location. We traveled with our 17 & 15 year old boys and 13 & 14 year old girls. Finding a comedy club that admits teens in NYC is hard! I am so...More

I am sure they tried, but the improv/standup show we saw last Friday felt kind of awkward to watch. There were a couple of laughs, but I had higher expectations due to the association with Amy Poehler and others. This paled in comparison to our...More

This was a bad sketch put together by what seemed to be a bunch of friends. It was hard to sit through it.

These places can be hit and miss - but that is not the point. It's a breading ground and showcase opportunity for up and coming talent. It might not hit the spot on the night - but like a fine wine, can age and mature,...More

Went to a Sunday night show at the East Village location. There were 6 comics doing small sets, so I think it only lasted about an hour. I was laughing throughout the whole show. The best comic on this particular night was Julio Torres, so...More

Get there a little early, you will have to stand in line, but it's so worth it. Hilarious, smart, witty improv. Their Del Close Marathon is awesome!

If you like improv, this place is a must see in NY. We saw the OSFUG: The Fast F**kin" Sketch Show. It's about an hour long show and they fit a lot of small skits into a very short time - hence the name. It's...More

If you're an Amy Poehler or SNL fan then Asssscat 3000 is a must see. At $12.00 a ticket it's a real bargain so tickets sell out fast. I set an alarm for noon on Sunday, two weeks before my chosen show date and purchased...More
