    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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
