Fresh Comedy – Served Nearby
With a stellar reputation for producing great improvisers, Upright Citizen’s Brigade is also a prime place to see exciting, cutting-edge comedy in various permutations – certainly in improve, but also for stand-up, sketch and many other unique offerings.
What kind of original work can you watch there? How about a show where you get legal representation or learn how you die? You can also see a parody of programming like “The View”, experience a haunted house for your anxieties or a puppet show for adults.
And no shortage of top comedy talent pops up at this venue, including stand-ups who perform regularly at the best New York comedy clubs and on television. Check out “Whiplash”, Mondays at 11pm, hosted by Leo Allen and Aparna Nancherla: A weekly showcase for New York City’s hottest alternative stand-up.
And it’s right in our backyard. (Well, nearly!) The Chelsea location at 307 West 26th Street is only a 10 minute walk from The Vanguard.
