Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
When we’re not eating, drinking, art-peeping, shopping and generally checking out the most stellar new things the city has to offer, we’re seeing a lot of live comedy. And with that in mind, we present to you the seven local comedy upstarts who we think are set to get their big breaks. It’s the class of 2016, if you will. (We’ve even asked each of these young talents to give us a senior quote and their nickname—like, you know, in a high-school yearbook.) Catch them at onstage an open mic in NYC or one of the city’s best comedy clubs now. And for more of the funny, be sure to check out our roundups of the best stand-up comedians’ specials and the best comedies on Netflix.
