Comic Strip Live

Upper East Side
5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)
The neighborhood isn’t exactly a breeding ground for edgy entertainment, so you’ll be grateful to find this fabled, long-running showcase. Established in 1975, CSL once launched the careers of Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock. While its true glory days may be over, the Strip knows how to pack in the crowds, get them plastered and send them home happy.

Comic Strip Live was the first comedy club I have ever been to in New York City, and happens to be one of my favorite. The best website to purchase comedy tickets in NYC is Best Comedy Tickets and they have an up to date schedule where you can buy tickets. here is the link. I hope this helps out a lot and enjoy the show.
