    This offshoot of the original Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre can’t be beat for a cheap and hilarious date. Plus, you’ll look especially cool on the off-chance that a big-name comedian shows up. Read more

    Not sure how they pull it off, the tix are quite affordable the set up quite impressive. Stage & Team is set up for skits more than stand up; different flavour from neighborhood basement comedy sites.

    i love this place! It's cheap, you get great laughs, and get to see some amazing new/old talents...shows sell out. I suggest making reservations.

    I like this place better than the other ucb because it is low key and more underground feeling. I have some some bad shows, but also really good ones.

    What a cozy place! I had a great laugh and a nice draught beer at the bar. There's also a good pizza place next door for that pre- or aftershow snack.

    Only $5 per comedy show, about 4 shows per night so u can pick a time that suits u. Check their website. Relaxed bar to hang out pre/ post show. Where the locals go.

    Great comedy venue with a spacious theater. Rotating craft beers on tap. Check out a jam to do some improv.

    After the show grab a slice from the original Two Boots. The best slice on Ave A. If you drive here allow an hour to find parking. Really.

    Get here at least 10 minutes early for the Sunday 8pm show so you can get some good seats. Comedy is way better when you can clearly see the face of the guy / lady on stage!

    Go in through the entrance on A street, when you get into the actual space, you'll be right up front.

    Get here early to get a seat. Show up close to show time and you could be standing the entire time.

    Shows here are more hit/miss than the one in Chelsea, but for $5 you really can't beat them. Watch amateur comics try to work the NYC scene

    You can read The Onion in the lobby and memorize lines from it to recite later during your "improvised" performance.

    When at the Tony Show I always sit far enough back so as their mic cable cant reach. God help me if they ever get wireless mics.

    It's a long way to the back of the room, so it's a lot easier to hear the show closer to the front.

    If you own a pair of pants u should probably wear some. The seats have a tendency to chafe bare buttocks.

    If you get a mani/pedi, ask for Stacy. She is the best in the biz and has great stories about her previous careers. Will definitely be back!

    The improv is hit or miss. I thought only the first half of the "F--- Friday" show was funny. Drinks are inexpensive and not mandatory, but highly recommended. Get there early for decent seats.
