Tired of being tortured by bad comedy?
Awful comedy should be punishable! In this unique comedy show, comedians perform and the audience decides if they should be PAID cash or administered PAIN by a Dominatrix.
The show opens with our host, Jay Nog (AMC and MTV), who warms up the crowd and answers a couple of taboo sex questions from the audience with the help of our unlicensed sex therapist Corinne Fisher (Guys we Fucked podcast). After they humorously field these questions Jay introduces the house Dominatrix Jessica Sovereign
Then the competition begins: five stand-up comedians compete to either get “paid” cash for their performance or receive “pain” from the Dominatrix. If the audience votes for a comedian to receive “pain,” he or she must pick a card from the “Deck of Pain” and the dominatrix will administer whatever the card says: Paddling in Pink Panties, clothes-pin nipple clamp Christmas Tree, cat tail lashings, or one of many others (always with a hearty stock of hot wax on call). In case the comedian can dish it out but can’t take the pain, there is of course a safe-word, chosen beforehand by YOU, the audience.

Comedy shows in NYC have been a staple of the entertainment industry in New York City for over half a century. The New York Comedy Club is a favorite among the locals due to its cheap prices and hilarious performers. The NYCC was recently featured in a commercial for Comedy Central and Toyota that starred a regular performer at the club, Mark Normand! Long-time local and famous comedian, Judah Friedlander, who is that guy from that show, performs his stand-up routine here often.
Comedy in NYC has never been so accessible. Open Microphone events are held frequently where locals and tourists can test their stand-up routines in front of an audience. This comedy club in NYC features a fantastic emcee, who will tell jokes in-between sets and introduce each comedian before their performance begins. Al Martin, legendary comedian and comedy club owner, recently sold the NYCC to Empire Tonight, a promotions company ran by Emilio Savone and E. Scott Lindner.
