It may have been a slightly more casual trip to the BAM Opera House than most of the events, but heading here for Sarah Silverman's NYCF comedy showcase was a memorable one nonetheless. Even better than Sarah herself was the cast of friends that she brought along for the rest of the show. What a hilarious group! 

We were sitting in the upper balcony but by no means did it feel like the nose bleed as it had a great view of the stage. Speaking of the view, the architecture of the theater just feels majestic. The BAM campus is a short walk from just about every train line that stops at Barclays Center, making it a convenient trip no matter what direction you're coming from. Looking forward to the next trip to BAM!


Came here to see Sarah Silverman on a Friday night and I must say this is one of the coolest venues in NYC. Even though it was absolutely packed, the set up of the theater is extremely comfortable and you get a nice view of the stage no matter where you are sitting. The acoustics where super nice, and the place itself is beautiful. The coolest part? To hang at BAMcafe before/after the show.

Can't wait to check out more performances here! Yay for BK!
