Comedy Club · Concert / Show
Opened in May 1975, Comic Strip Live is the longest running showcase comedy club in the world. Seven nights a week top comedians you've seen on television and the silver screen take the microphone on our world famous stage and prove why New York Magazine calls us, “The most expertly booked club in the city.”

Many comedy legends have started their careers on our legendary stage including Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld, and more. The tradition of nurturing new comedians continues with regularly scheduled open mics, new talent showcases, and stand-up comedy classes. The new comedians you see on our stage today might be the stars you see tomorrow!

Voted AOL City Guide “BEST COMEDY CLUB”, Comic Strip Live features a light menu, full bar and intimate showroom. A new 9-foot projection screen makes it perfect for private or corporate events, movie screenings, and viewing parties.

  • I was disappointed. They need to turn the Mic up and teach comedians how to actually speak into the Mic. I missed alot of the jokes due to that. Didn't see our waitress until several comedians...  more »

  • Great environment, good tasting drinks, comedy makes the night. Not a place to eat when you're hungry however. Their food choice goes from a simple burger to a chips and melted cheese called "nachos". So if you get hungry when you drink make sure to bring some food. Haha.
  • Great comedy. Laughed for 2 hours. They serve burgers and nachos but the food is nothing to write home about. Come for the talent and drinks. Reasonable entry fee. 2 drink pp minimum
  • Amazing comedians, nice atmosphere. Less two stars because of the food but don't let the bad stop you from going. Just don't plan to eat there. If you must have the chips, get the sauce on the side.
  • Great place to bring a date or friends. Really funny comedians, great drinks, food is okay. But definitely worth visiting once. Had a great time with my girlfriend. We were called out a couple times and one comedian ditched his act and picked on us the whole time. It was awesome.
  • Bottom line: if you like stand up, you'll have a great time. Even saw a bunch of known comedians! Gluten line: drinks only, food is simple and totally not safe. Long line: as a fan of stand up, I had a blast here. Some of the comedians I've even seen before so it was a real treat seeing them perform in person. Do understand that even if you get discounted tickets, they make their money with a 2 drink minimum, which is strictly enforced. Even given that the price per person isn't terrible for what you get, and I'd personally return. As others mentioned, most comedians will roast, so be prepared, specially if you sit really close.
