Reviews

Citysearchers give National Comedy Theatre in NY five stars:

  • All the performers were hilarious and made the time go by so fast that I wish I had time to watch another show. – halfonit
  • It's a really great looking place, which only adds to the quality of the performances. The cast was original, hilarious and performed some of the best improv that we had ever seen - either live or on television. – bennster
  • The first thing we noticed was the theater itself. It's very "upscale,"...We have already been back twice...it's one of the best date-nights in New York. – gmagazino

Printable List of Improv Suggestions

At the beginning of each improv show, the performers ask the audience for a suggestion. This frequently results in 10 to 20 minutes of awkward silence, followed by the performers leaving the stage, until an hour of silence passes and a bold audience member finally speaks up with a brilliantly conceived suggestion, fart, but his genius call rings coldly across the quiet stage, too tardy to be hilariously interpreted by the cast.
