the standing roomThe Standing Room (formerly The Laughing Devil) is located in Long Island and is Queens’ only comedy club. This NYC comedy club is the most spatially challenged comedy club in the United States, making it an architectural wonder, as well as an excellent locale for the best of NYC comedy. Located one stop away from Grand Central Station, this NYC comedy club is a favorite among many local comedy enthusiasts. Steve Hofstetter, the original owner of The Laughing Devil, was an incredible professional comedian in his own right. Hofstetter recently sold the comedy club to the same people who own “The Stand NYC”, one of the highest rated NYC comedy clubs. The current owners of this comedy club are some of the most passionate connoisseurs of comedy and it is clear that this NYC comedy club is owned by some of the industry’s best.

The name change is appropriate as most shows at this exciting comedy venue offer Standing Room only!

Comedy shows in NYC do not get any better than this. Most fans of comedy in NYC have to wait for sundown, but The Standing Room often screens cult-classics (Animal House, Spaceballs, etc.) during the day, leading up to their nighttime stand-up performances. This club has a full bar with delicious drinks and features some of the best up-and-coming comedians. The Standing Room is a favorite among NYC locals because of everything the club stands for. Although the club itself is small, it was carefully designed to maximize audience comfort. The well-stocked bar encompasses half of the club and is a main event in and of itself. The stage where the comedians perform is of course, the center-piece of each NYC comedy show and the comedians love to take advantage of the intimate setting for their routine.
