So you’re coming to New York City and want to see some stand-up comedy? Can’t say that we blame you. The comedy in New York City is by far the best in the world.

But before you see a comedy show, you’ve got to get your tickets, and that’s where things can seem a little problematic. With so many comedy, and comedy solicitors on the streets in Times Square, how do you know you’re getting the best deal or not being scammed? (To be honest, that’s why we created Best Comedy Tickets; because there are tons of different options and we wanted to make seeing stand up comedy easy. So we put everything in one place.

He is known as The World Champ, actor, comedian Judah Friedlander is AWESOME. Not only is he a excellent comedian, actor, he’s the world champ of the world. Judah can be seen nightly performing at most of the local comedy clubs in NYC.

Judah is mainly known for his role on the NBC hit 30 Rock where he played the character of Frank Rossitano. As well as such films as Wet Hot, American Summerer, American Splendor, and The Wrestler. Though before all the film fame he was a hard working stand up comic, and he quickly became one of my favorites. The first time I saw Judah perform was back in 2001 at Comic Strip Live on the Upper East Side, when I first started to promote stand up comedy. What caught my attention was how great he is working the crowd. After the shows he would greet all the fans and he’s a really is a genuine nice person. He would really take the time and talk to everyone and was good at marketing himself. I knew then he was something special and he quickly became one of my favorite comedians. read more

Sarah Silverman vs. Al Martin: The Gender Gap

Sarah Silverman vs Al Martin

Sarah Silverman vs Al Martin

A major issue in the United States has been the statistical gap in pay between men and women for the same work. A recent study showed women in full-time positions were paid 78 cents on the dollar when compared to men working the same job. Has this trend made its way onto the stage at the venerable New York Comedy Club?

Sarah Silverman checked her witty, satirical attitude at the door and brought her grievances to Levo League’s YouTube channel. Levo League is an online community of professional women who offer guidance and support to other women looking to move their career forward. With “fighting the gender pay gap” as one of their focal points, it’s not surprising that they would look for a compelling, headline grabbing celebrity story to draw attention to the issue. read more

Al Martin Interview


By Leo Goodman

Al Martin - Broadway Comedy Club

If you’re on this site then you already know New York has some pretty damn good comedy clubs.  What you might not know is that three of them are owned by one guy.

Over the past couple decades Al Martin has developed himself into a one-man comedy industry, with New York Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, and now Greenwich Village Comedy Club providing audiences with stand-up shows and more seven nights a week.  It’s even more than you realize, once you consider that Broadway Comedy Club itself has three different stages, each of them with shows every night.  Sitting in the comic’s lounge area just off the main room downstairs at Broadway, with the sounds an audience’s laughter just on the other side of the wall, the comedian-turned club owner talks about telling jokes, booking jokesters, and just how much comedy a city like New York can sustain. read more
