Carolines on Broadway, the premiere comedy nightclub of New York City, presents the biggest stars of television, movies, and the national standup circuit seven nights a week. The television studio-like showroom, which can accommodate over 250 people, has won numerous architectural awards for its lush wood and brushed metal design. A wide assortment of food and drink is available during the show, and fine dining is available before or after the show in the intimate supper lounge.
Note: There is a two-drink minimum for all shows.
There's nothing like standup comedy in person — the spontaneity of a comedian in front of a live audience is something special. See for yourself at Comic Strip Live, which offers some of the best standup in New York City. Performers hail from Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central, Conan, and the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Audiences can enjoy food, mixed drinks, and specialty brews as they laugh the night away.
Obnoxious strangers, overbearing bosses, and unrequited high school crushes are about to get a piece of your mind. The Friday Night Sh*w invites audience members to anonymously write down their repressed rants, cursing-outs, and sultry confessions. Improv performers then use that writing to fuel a fast-paced brawl of hilarity. The cast includes a fistful of New York City's best improvisers with credits on 30 Rock, Comedy Central, MTV, Chicago's Second City, the Onion, and NPR — and at least one Primetime Emmy Award loser.
Each week, the Magnet Theater's resident ensembles converge for a night of improv comedy. The night might include anything from monoscenes to Harolds (long-form improv acts that begin with a suggestion from the audience). Because Megawatt's format gets changed more frequently than a lightbulb, returning audience members can expect to be dazzled every time.
High-Powered improv from Magnet's own Musical Super Groups. Our resident ensembles gather to dazzle audiences with a completely improvised musical. No two shows are the same; come see what your favorites are up to this week!
With an open mind, heart, and vagina, Mindy Raf demolishes the romantic comedy and the roles we play in it in her critically acclaimed solo show Not the One: A Love Story. Honing the perfect blend of her stand-up, storytelling, and musical theater chops, Raf demystifies love, loss, and sexuality, and engages her vulnerable, razor-sharp storytelling style to face the complexities of modern love and leave us asking, "Could I ever do that?"
Saturday at 6pm: the perfect time to get your jaded mind blown by four improv ensembles. Will the neighborhood kids be driven wild by their new forms and structures? Yes. Will you?
The Rundown features different groups at each performance that unite veteran performers with up-and-comers ready to bring it.
Stand Up NY is one of New York City's premiere venues for standup comics. It features some of the best comedians performing in NYC, nationally, and on TV. Surprise drop-ins have included Jerry Seinfeld, Steven Wright, and Robin Williams.
Nick Kanellis and Peter McNerney (Statues of Liberty) team up with Magnet Theater veteran Leslie Korein to form a brand-new improv trio with one purpose: rockin' a seamless, high-energy, character-driven, free-form improv set every week.
Award-winning British comedian Simon Amstell brings his critically acclaimed new stand-up show to New York City. A funny, deeply personal exploration of beauty, intimacy, freedom, sex, and love, What Is This? is Amstell's fifth and finest stand-up show to date. It received rave reviews during his sold-out UK tour last fall.
Zoinks! The Groovy Gang is BACK! Catch up with your favorite band of teen sleuths and their talking alligator drummer, Chompers, as they return to the IRTE stage for more spooky improvised fun!
