Katie haller

We met up with Katie Haller at New York Comedy Club East Village. She was one of the crowd favorites and we got to sit down with her and talk to her about stand up comedy and the NYC Comedy Clubs scene.

1. What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy?
I have had some ridiculous jobs. The weirdest-being a bar/bat mitzvah dancer. That was only for a short time right after graduation. The funniest was being a stand-in for child actors. I’m 4’11 and started doing background work as a side job and then started getting booked as a stand-in. Basically, I would show up to movie/tv sets, go through the scene for lighting and blocking purposes while a 10-year-old drinks Yoohoo in their trailer. read more

Excuse me, do you like live comedy? Well, fantastic news!

The EastVille Comedy Club— top-notch NYC comedy club frequented by Janeane Garofalo and other downtown comics– picked up and moved to Brooklyn in July 2018, leaving its home of 8 years vacant.

Lucky for the East Village, the subterranean space at 85 East 4th Street was quickly taken over by the New York Comedy Club, which gave it a quick touch-up.

It looks like Jim Gaffigan and Todd Barry, who routinely dropped into EastVille Comedy Club, have dropped into its own replacement. They have had some of NYC top comics such as Sherrod Small (VH1’s The Very Best Week Ever and Opie with Jim Norton) also as Last Comic Standing alums Yamaneika Saunders, Jon Fisch, along with Adrienne Iapalucci. read more
