Comedy Night at The Stand
239 3rd Ave, Gramercy
Comedy has come to Gramercy in the form of a cozy little split-level joint on 3rd Ave. Unlike the touristy spots around Time Square, this place doesn't make comedians scrounge up their own audiences to perform and they don't have drink minimums, so there really is no pressure. Tonight features the laugh riots of Mike Lawrence, Christian Finnegan, Yannis Pappas and more. Check them out.
