The New York Comedy Club opened its doors thirty years ago in 1989, and since then its classic design and hip vibe have made it one of the hottest venues in the city.

The legacy of this comedy club in NYC got even richer when it came under new ownership in 2014. This year marks five years since this change of ownership when Emilio Savone and E Scott Linder purchased the venue from Al Martin.

Since then, the club has been outfitted with a brand new front bar that takes the experience to the next level. Currently, New York Comedy Club offers unbeatable drink specials available both before and after the show.

During their time as owners, Savone and Linder have worked to not only continue the venue’s tradition as being one of the most popular NYC comedy clubs but build on it. In doing so, they’ve conducted a pair of intensive renovations on the property, modernizing the venue for a fresh, modern feel.

But, that’s not all. The expansion of the New York Comedy Club under their leadership has led to increased showtimes and venue locations.


Perhaps the most significant change to the New York Comedy Club since the pair has taken over is the addition of a new venue in East Village.

Located in what was formerly the Eastville Comedy Club, the new venue proudly brings a renewed laughter to those in the East Village every night of the week. The location, which has also been heavily renovated and upgraded, joins New York Comedy Club Midtown as one of the most well-respected comedy clubs in NYC.

No matter which venue you choose, you can be sure to get nothing but grade-A laughs. That’s because New York Comedy Club works only with the Big Apple’s finest comedic talents. By working with this exclusive talent pool, this great venue provides customers with unbeatable laughs at an unsurpassable quality.


In addition to professional nightly comedy shows, New York Comedy Club allows amateurs a chance to show their stuff during open mic night three days a week.

Those wishing to show off their comedic and creative flair are encouraged to sign up to take the stage for open mic night, starting every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 5 PM. Those wishing to participate must sign up with the club starting at 4 PM and pay a small fee of $3.

Live Recordings

New York Comedy Club features convenient venues for both guests and professional comedians. Perhaps nothing highlights this best than by the fact that the venue comes fully equipped to provide a high-quality live recording of a comedy event.

These professional live recordings provide high-quality audio and video content, as well as a host of other perks. Those interested must first contact the New York Comedy Club for more details.

In the past, New York Comedy Club has worked to provide live recordings of in-house shows from all of the following comedians:
