    The Comedy Cellar if I remember rightly was in Greenwich Village. It was very dark and late.

    Our tickets were to the late session of the Comedy show. They do at least 2 a night. Our show was about 11pm.

    Anyway this place is supposed to be one of the funniest comedy bars in NY. Breeding ground of many a comedian. Stars such as Seinfield, Chris Rock, and Jon Lovitz have all been here.

    Note you need tickets before hand. Don't ask me how much they were I don't know. I do though remember that ticket prices also include that you must purchase a minimum 2 drinks per person.

    Anyway they herd the people into the tiniest of all basement clubs. Ignore the fact it seems unsafe to have this many people.

    The show is a series of about 6 or so comedians. Some good, some well, not so good. Some of the humour is very American, very New York, so foreigners like me might sometimes be thinking not funny or miss a joke. But oh well it was an experience.

    Dress Code: Very casual.

    Comedy Cellar Comedy Club: Tight squeeze but you'll laugh all night together

    by WeeScotishLassie Updated May 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The lesser known comedians are always funnier than the headliners, in my opinion. When we walked in to this comedy club that sat us at a packed in table with a few stangers, but it was fun none-the-less. If you're out going and talkative you can make some interesting friends. You all laugh together all night and share a few drinks. Since the cover charge is so cheap, you have to buy a minimum of two drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) while you're watching the acts. Of course the club is more fun if you can toss back a few drinks and let the laughs come. There are several bars to hit up when you get out, so don't be afaid to let loose and expect a late and hilariously memorable night.

    Dress Code: Casual.
