Comic Strip Live - Upper East Side: $10 Ticket to Any Show at Comic Strip Live (Average $25 Value)

Laughter is said to be the shortest distance between two people, after ninjas throwing stars and zip-lines. Traverse trails of chuckles and chortles with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission to any show at Comic Strip Live (a $25 average value). The $25 value was taken from the average cost of a ticket at Comic Strip Live, whose shows range in cost from $22 to $27. As with many comedy clubs, Comic Strip Live has a two-drink minimum; alcoholic beverages start at $10 each, and unlimited non-alcoholic drinks are available for $20.

Since opening its doors in 1975, Comic Strip Live has served as the launch pad for such comedic icons as Joe Piscopo, Caroline Rhea, and Jay Mohr, as well as other, lesser-known comedians such as Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Adam Sandler. It hosts stand-up comedy shows seven nights a week, with performances by comedians who are currently the subject of funnybone-related litigation due to successful appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Showtime at the Apollo, Comedy Central Presents, the Late Show with David Letterman, Best Week Ever, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Comic Strip Live is also known for famous alumni dropping by for surprise appearancesChris Rock stopped by the club for a performance on Easter Sunday, for example.

Step inside Comic Strip Live's intimate performance space, with walls lined with headshots of the many mirth-meisters who have taken to the brick-wall-backdropped stage at the club, and enjoy real, live laughter not based on Internet videos of cats riding Jet Skis.

Reviews

Though some Yelpers disparage the drink prices and venue size, they love the quality comedy and give Comic Strip Live an average of three stars. Nearly 100 Citysearchers give it four stars, citing the small space as both a pro and a con.

  • None of the comedians that perform here are amateurs so you are guaranteed professionals at every show, Some of the people I've seen perform I've also seen on tv shows too. I always have such a great time and laugh my butt off. – Heather R., Yelp
  • It's a little cozy, BUT you get a great view of whoever is on stage no matter where you sit! – NYC10031, Citysearch

Comic Strip Live

Tickling funny bones since 1975, the Comic Strip Live's cabaret-style club continues to host nightly lineups of new talent and comedic all-stars, such as Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and Ellen DeGeneres. Humorists take the one-person stage in the intimate space, luring out laughter with jokes and savory one-liners placed in the club's on-site bear trap. Guests can rest their elbows on wooden tables as they sip alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverages, which help to escort bites of nachos or popcorn past belly laughs attempting to make a quick exit. Once laughers have exhausted their last chuckle, they can make an exit while gazing upon the venue's walls, which are spackled from floor to ceiling with framed headshots of hilarious people.

Took my boyfriend for his birthday - he loved it. So I'm very happy! Good laughs

I thought the show was great! However, the groupon fails to mention the minimum purchases of menu items ($20 per person) that must be made by each patron.
