Dark Horse Comedy Club is located in the heart of Tribeca, Lower Manhattan, New York City. Adam Strauss, Tribeca’s most legendary comedian, performs here regularly and his name is pretty much synonymous with Dark Horse. This NYC comedy club is famous among the locals due to its professional setting, spaciousness, full bar, extensive menu and hilarious comedians. This comedy club features comedians who have been on some of comedy’s most high-profile shows such as: Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brian and Comedy Central. The Dark Horse Comedy Club features the best and most comprehensive food and drink menu of all comedy clubs in New York City as well as a full bar. Most clubs treat food as an after-thought, something that is required to be offered as a means to make their quota, but not Dark Horse. Here you have a wide-ranging menu of tasty food and delicious drinks to choose from. Over sixty mouth-watering selections exist on the menu. From hamburgers and french fries to sirloin steaks and cheesecake, the Dark Horse has some of the best food in town. This club has a typical bar setup, unlike many comedy clubs, with plenty of room and TVs to watch the game on before the comedians take to the stage. Dark Horse stands out as a comedy club because of its professional atmosphere and great food. There are booths to sit at, impeccable service and some of the best comedians in all of New York City. The minimum age to attend a show is 16, unless accompanied by an adult. Getting to Dark Horse is easy. New York’s rapid transit takes you right to the club. Parking is not a problem. Free parking is available in many places near the Dark Horse but just in case you can’t find a spot there is a paid 24-hour parking lot only two blocks south of the comedy club. The Dark Horse is one of only a few of comedy clubs that exist in Tribeca so they attract only the best and funniest comedians!
Joe Larson: Joe Larson grew up in Seattle, Washington with no aspirations of being a stand up comedian. In May of 2003, realizing his dream of becoming the first person other than Oprah to be on the cover of O magazine wasn‘t going to happen on its own, Joe decided to try comedy. He wasn’t doing anything else that day and was inspired by his parents, who also don’t have real jobs. What Joe lacks in work ethic, he makes up for in spite. His father, a comedian, worked 4 hours a week and Joe aspires to someday out do him by working even less than that. In the short time Joe has been doing stand-up he has had the opportunity of performing at The Stardust in Las Vegas, The Icehouse in Pasadena, and the prestigious Buzz-Inn Steak House in Washington (somewhere along the highway). Joe made his television debut on the Spanish Channel where he was muy funny-o despite not being able to speak Spanish. Also, Joe was chosen as College Comedian of the Year at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival where he got to share the Wayne Newton Theater stage with comedy greats such as Norm Crosby, Jack Carter and Tony Danza (they didn’t let Mr. Danza talk… who‘s the boss now Tony?). Although very grateful for the use of his theater, Joe still has no clue who Wayne Newton is.
Vincent James: Vincent James is a stand-up comedian, native New Yorker, and a lover. At least two of those things are true. He grew up in Port Chester, NY, always enjoyed performing and have a background in theatre (in the most masculine way possible, I swear). My greatest life achievement is choreographing a dance sequence in my 8th grade performance of “Grease.” It’s usually the first thing he brings up when he meets someone. “I like to run around stage and yell into a microphone, which is the dream life for a guy who can’t sit still. If I’m able to make the audience laugh, even better. I would describe my comedic style as high-energy, physical, relatable and raw.” He created Pietrafied Productions to bring the best of comedy shows and charity events to Westchester County, and loves to perform in clubs in and around NYC. “I live to make people laugh, and love when fans approach me after shows to say they had a great time or to hit on me (though the latter is probably just my imagination).” In January of 2014, Vincent headlined Garcia’s at the famous Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY, for their comedy debut. He has been featured in Westchester Magazine and on the MSG Network, and was recently invited and took part in Sirius XM’s Satellite Radio’s Covino and Rich Show at the Gotham Comedy Club in NYC
