If you are looking to see some of the best comedy shows in Manhattan I'd recommend using this website http://www.BestComedyTickets.com/schedule they offer the top lineups all on one page and best comedy ticket prices in the city. My roommates and I are huge stand up comedy fans and go pretty much a few times monthly and we always view their website for the most up to date comedy schedule in the city.
