    Amazing place with 2 beautiful theaters. Bar is gorgeous & a wonderful staff. Lots of great, funny shows every night of the week. Be sure to check out "The Andrews Sisters" Tuesday nights at 9 PM.

    Intimate space to catch some sidesplitting improv – especially on Wednesdays when all the shows are free from 6-11pm. They serve wine and beer too!

    One of the best improv spots in NYC. It's more of a social club than a bar. The bartenders are legends.

    The bartenders here are great. Service is quick and pleasant. Happy hour is $1 off from 5-7 pm. Seats in the theater are pretty small and uncomfortable. I was smushed the entire time.

    I went to see "Political Subversities" at this hipster-ridden theater and it was a fantastic! Not only is the show hilarious but each actor is incredibly talented. One of my best nights out!

    No need to pre-game at any nearby bars before attending a PIT show. There's a bar right in the lobby! And an impressive one at that. Drinks are allowed in the actual theatres as well. *burp*

    Great bar space for before or after shows. Or anytime, really. If you're seeing a show you think may be bad in the theater sit in the back. There are stairs you can escape by w/o disrupting the show!

    Great place to practice your improv in front of an audience, just make sure you have cash. It sucks to have to go to the ATM, spend more on the transaction then the show and break a 20 for a 1. Read more

    If you're catching a show in the basement, grab a beer upstairs first where they have lots of good stuff on tap. The selection downstairs is limited to only what's in the keg.

    Saw Gypsy Danger and was happy to see what a fun performance you can see for almost nothing in NY. Would definitely go again.

    Haven't been to the new venue yet. I enjoyed going there when it was in the West 20's. After I'm done with nursing school, I'd love to take a few classes in comedy writing here.

    Don't worry about coming late. You can sneak into the back of the audience through the side door. The usher will show you

    Love the free all you can eat ice cream cones on the first day of summer,but miss the bar snacks. Nothing like the smell of grilled cheese and jalapeños

    Ali has set up a theater bar here that will be hard to match, although they should bring back the coffee and sandwiches too.
