Comix Comedy Club, 10014


Comix Comedy Club induces side-splitting laughter with marquee names like Chuck Nice, Danny Bonaduce and Alex Borstein. This slick new venue is a spacious alternative to its cramped downtown competitors. With 14,000 square feet to spare and unobstructed stage views, this club also doubles as a TV studio. Aside from big-name stand-up stars, Comix also hosts variety, improv and sketch shows, and offers classes for aspiring comedians. Check the website for the latest headliners. Like most comedy venues, there is a two-item minimum, but that doesn’t just mean drinks. Comix offers a full dinner menu complete with appetizers and dessert, so dinner and a show is totally doable. Just make sure you don’t get food stuck in your teeth… you’ll surely be a target for heckling.

Floating the Apple

In the warmer weather months when the sun is beating down on the New York City pavement and your body is being cooked from all angles, it is often difficult to remember that Manhattan is an island with easily accessible bodies of water.
