Best Comedy Tickets gives you the schedules to comedy clubs nyc.
Dark Horse Comedy Club is a new concept from a proven team. We’re the same crew behind Tribeca Comedy Lounge, named one of New York’s Best New Comedy Clubs by Time Out New York, and Dark Horse features the same national headliners as Tribeca – people you’ve seen on Letterman, Fallon, Conan, and Comedy Central. But here we also hand the mic to comics you may not have heard of yet but definitely will soon, the dark horses on the cusp of making their mark. How do we know who they are? Because first and foremost, we’re comics ourselves, so we have unique, first-person insight into the NYC comedy scene. So come down to Dark Horse tonight to see the stars of today – and tomorrow.

Nathan Macintosh is an award winning comedian from Halifax Nova Scotia, who has quickly risen to become one of the hottest young comics in the country.
Nathan has already piled up a number of accomplishments including, taping his own “Comedy Now!” special for the Comedy Network/CTV, performing at the prestigious 2010 Just For Laughs Festival Homegrown Competition where he placed runner-up, winning a 2009 “Canadian Comedy Award” for best newcomer also taped for The Comedy Network, been a semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival, appearing at the Halifax Comedy Festival in 2009, taping an episode of CBC radio’s “The Debaters”, winning the prestigious Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award 2007, which was taped for the Comedy Network as “The Cream of Comedy”, he has appeared on MuchMusic’s “Stars Gone Wild”, a guest spot on XM Satellite Radio’s “Chomping at the Bit” and “Laugh Attack” and a small role in the critically acclaimed film “The Wait” which premiered at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. Most recently he was named one of the “Top Five Canadian Comedians being Observed” by the Comedy Network and one of five of the New Generation of Canadian Funny Men by Sharp Magazine.
He is also a favorite at comedy clubs right across the country, and is one of only five caucasian comedians to have headlined the “All Black Comedy Revue” that has been running for 16 years in Toronto.
Nathan has also turned his attention to writing, being a script editor on the Family Channel show “The Latest Buzz” which was nominated for a Gemini award.
Nathan has done all of this in a relatively short period of time since moving from Halifax to Toronto only 5 years ago.

Adam Strauss’s comedy has been called many things, mostly adjectives. He consistently makes audiences laugh, then catch their breath and listen, then laugh some more, then take a sip of their drinks, then smack their palms together in a bizarre, borderline-masochistic conformist ritual. Adam rose phoenix-like from the hardscrabble, Volvo-lined streets of Newton, Massachusetts in the midst of that city’s crippling hard cider epidemic, defying those who said he’d never amount to more than a cosmetic surgeon or corporate attorney. He currently lives in New York City, utterly alone.
