Great place for late night laughs. There's a bar here!!
Simple, cheap, and fun. Been multiple times and don't think there is more fun in NY for $10/ticket. Bar is lively.
Watched Fake Church. I wasnt sure about what to expect. Loved it. I didnt stop laughing for a minute!!
Free and cheap comedy (mostly improv) nightly. Before 7, drinks are $1 off.
Lots of fun with cheap shows and a generous happy hour! Plus free water always!
Free improv shows all night on Mondays and Wednesdays on the Underground stage.
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
cheap, sometimes free comedy nightly
Just a fun place.
The owner was born in Esfahan, Iran, which is why Esfahan time is posted among major world cities.
Great bar spot with tons of fun improv shows.
First time jam
Very good shows. Prices are reasonable and with a student ID, it's even cheaper!
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.
Drinks free on your birthday!!!
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!
North Coast: Hip-Hop Improv EVERY SATURDAY AT 8pm!
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.
Checking out Storytellers - RISK on the last Thursday of each month. Only $10 a ticket and it's absolutely fantastic.
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
Kelly Fitzpatrick is the #1 reason to come here.
If you can't make your date laugh, might as well get someone else to do it!
Come and see Slap Fight... the best comedy skit in town...
Third Saturday of every month is Astronaut Theater. Excellent every time.
REMEMBER: Any improv student with ID - regardless of school - gets into shows for FREE! YEAH!
Super Free Monday is great , especially Matador at 9pm.
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*

The Vanilla Java Porter is great, almost as good as the comedy.
Check out Agent Cooper and Suspicious Package the First Tuesday of every month at 10pm on the PIT Mainstage!
They did twin peaks season 3 here! It was great ! I only caught the last show so I hope they do it again !!
Seeing a show downstairs? Wait until the house is open and get your drinks at the downstairs bar. No wait!
Check out Monday night downstairs for more free shows. Monderground! Starts at 8pm.
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.
Bartenders here are soooo hot. Especially this cutie named J.D. :)
