    Simple, cheap, and fun. Been multiple times and don't think there is more fun in NY for $10/ticket. Bar is lively.

    Good variety of standup showcases, improv groups, and more! Classes may be a little pricey, but drop-in classes aren't so expensive.

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

    The bartenders here are very fair. (Non-attention-seeking whores, you know what I mean)

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

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

    The $5 ATM fee may seem harsh, but bring your receipt to the bar for $5 off your drink!

    My new fav comedy spot. 'Cover-band Han Valen. Deflowering the Crunch logo. Divorcing abusive cat. My sister, Lord Voldemort.' -- The Starkey & Grace men and the Gilda women were hilarious.

    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

    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

    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*

    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.
