The Comedy Underground

New York’s Funniest Annual Comedy “Show” You’ve Never Heard Of, Plus Five Spots to Catch Some of the City’s Best Comics

On January 12, the funniest comedy show in New York City won’t be happening at any of the usual clubs—and there will be plenty of great shows that night in the country’s number one comedy town. But there’s one unusual show that will be happening underground, in your favorite public transit system: the subway.

All day long, subway passengers will share cars with city-dwellers who, in their morning rush out the door, will seem to have forgotten a crucial element of clothing, particularly when it comes to living in New York in mid-January: their pants.

Pants are good. Pants make sense. Pants are important. As a society, we agree on a daily basis that life will be better for everyone if we all wear them. But for one day, a yet-to-be-determined number of New Yorkers will forgo the longstanding tradition of wearing pants in public, a sight that will be all the more confusing for commuters who spot a pants-less traveler on a day when the wind chill could be pretty brutal. One can understand the decision to shed excess clothing in the midst of a hellish experience like a crowded train in August. Riding the subway without pants in January doesn’t appear to have as much upside.

The upside, of course, will be the reactions. No Pants Subway Ride, an event that has grown year after year ever since its inception in 2002, began gaining notoriety on the internet thanks to video footage in which various New Yorkers become increasingly bewildered at the number of people casually boarding the train sans pants and going about their talking/reading/scrolling as if their underwear wasn’t on display.

Now, 18 years later, NPSR enthusiasts will gather at six different locations around the city (you can find all the information you need here) and begin their bizarre but strategic takeover of the city. 

The original No Pants Subway Ride started with only seven people, according to Improv Everywhere’s website. In the following years, the event was covered by ABC News, This American Life, MSNBC and The Late Show with David Letterman. By 2007, 300 people were participating in the event. By 2012, that number had reached 4,000. The No Pants Subway Ride has now spread to 25 other cities around the world, including Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Munich and more.

The No Pants Subway Ride, in addition to being one of the funniest gags that has garnered global participation, is also a perfectly fitting way to begin a year that will almost certainly be huge for comedy. We’re in the midst of the biggest stand-up comedy boom since the 1980s, and there isn’t a better place to be than New York City, whether you’re looking to catch your favorite star on a big stage or local comics in an intimate venue.

“Caroline’s is a fun place to perform at because it’s a traditional club setting, audiences are international,” said Melissa Diaz, a comedian who was featured as a breakout artist at Caroline’s last year. “You get more Middle America audiences to perform for, so you can see if your stuff works on them.”

Diaz also says Greenwich Village Comedy Club is one of her favorite spots to hone material and just be herself on stage. 

“There was a trend for a number of years of building out these larger comedy rooms that can seat 300-plus—Gotham, Caroline’s,” said Al Martin, owner of Greenwich Village Comedy Club. “Greenwich Village has held to what stand-up comedy is, which is a small, intimate venue. It’s really a great throwback to the village days of Lenny Bruce and Joan Rivers…they were always working out in small venues, and this is that.”

When Greenwich Village Comedy Club first opened, it was considered a “real underdog,” Martin said. Opening just down the street from one of the most legendary clubs in the world—the Comedy Cellar—was a risky move. But eight years later, the club is still chugging along, largely due to the opportunities it gives to young, up-and-coming comics.

“That’s a home base for me,” Diaz said. “It’s a good place to get a consistent flow of audience members…work on new stuff, hone old stuff.”

Young stars like Mark Normand and Marina Franklin were regulars at Greenwich Village before gaining more widespread notoriety. 

“The ones who aren’t working (at the Comedy Cellar) are working for us,” Martin said. “A lot of the young people we develop end up, a couple years later, on their lineup. We’re developing the next wave of comedians that are coming along.”

Our Top Five

As 2020 kicks into gear, it’s the perfect time to take a look at some of the best spots around town to experience stand-up comedy as it’s meant to be experienced: live. From the legends selling out New York City’s most historic venues to the most intimate comedy clubs in town, we’ve got you covered.

1.     Caroline’s on Broadway

This legendary room in Times Square is widely known as one of the premiere comedy clubs in the world, with 300 seats and a dynamic environment that has been a favorite room and launching pad for world-class comedians ever since it opened in Chelsea in 1981 (it’s been located in the heart of Times Square since 1992). Caroline’s has no shortage of talent on stage this month–Sinbad kicked off the new year and the fun continues with headliners including Donnell Rawlings (Netflix’s The Degenerates), Hari Kondabolu (Netflix special Warn Your Relatives) and more.

2.     Jerry Seinfeld at the Beacon Theatre

What better way to kick off 2020 than to see one of the greatest comedians alive in one of New York City’s most historic venues? If you can’t get to the Seinfeld star’s January shows at the Beacon Theatre  this week, not to worry; Seinfeld will be back for more laughs at the iconic theater in February and March.

3.     EastVille Comedy Club

For every killer comedy show in Manhattan, there’s another in Brooklyn, where the stand-up boom has given birth to a thriving scene, particularly with young people. Among the most popular comedy venues in Brooklyn is EastVille Comedy Club, which relocated from Manhattan in 2008. With plenty of open mic nights to test your comedy chops, EastVille is an entertainment destination. Not feeling your funny bone?.Catch the pros featuring New York favorite Janeane Garofalo throughout January and February.

4.     Impractical Jokers at Radio City Music Hall

2020 could be a big year for the stars of the hugely popular hidden camera prank show Impractical Jokers. In addition to a ninth season of their hit show on TruTV, the four-man comedy troupe (also known as “The Tenderloins”) has a feature-length film that is expected to premiere in 2020. Why not add a run at Radio City Music Hall to the mix? Joe Gatto, James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano will bring “The Cranjis McBasketball World Comedy Tour” to the heart of Rockefeller Center this month.

5.     Greenwich Village Comedy Club

Tucked away in the heart of the comedy scene on MacDougal Street, Greenwich Village Comedy Club has been a training ground for legendary names like Sarah Silverman and Tracy Morgan but is also a fun, intimate spot to catch New York’s young talent. Plus, you’re a short walk away from comedy shows at The Comedy Cellar, The Grisly Pear and The Lantern. Don’t miss Greenwich Village Comedy Club All Star Stand Up Comedy. It’s the club’s signature show featuring top headliners and a star-studded array of special guests.

NYC Sports Guide: Nets & Knicks vs. Heat

Welcome to the NYC Sports Guide. Not only do we cover the latest news related to New York sports, we fill you in on what’s happening around town during the big game. So whether you’re a die-hard local or a visiting sports fan, we’re here to help you create the ultimate game-day experience in the Big Apple.

This winter, a heat wave from South Beach hits New York City.

The red-hot Miami Heat play the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, Jan. 10 (7:30 p.m.) at Barclays Center and the New York Knicks on Sunday, Jan. 12 (3:30 p.m.) at Madison Square Garden.

Miami has been one of the NBA’s biggest surprises this season with a 23-8 record as of the end of 2019, so you can expect to see basketball fans sporting Heat gear around Downtown Brooklyn and Midtown Manhattan very soon.

Buy Heat vs. Nets Tickets Here

The Heat wasn’t expected to be this good this soon due to how young most of its core players are, but the addition of four-time all-star Jimmy Butler this past summer and reliability of veteran point guard Goran Dragić have helped the franchise’s youth movement develop ahead of schedule.

Six Heat players are averaging 10 or more points per game, including the aforementioned Butler (20.4), Dragić (15.9), 20-year-old rookie shooting guard Tyler Herro (13.9) and 22-year-old center and Newark native Bam Adebayo (15.8).

Heat fans haven’t been this excited since their team was a perennial NBA Finals contender led by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh a half-decade ago.

Buy Heat vs. Knicks Tickets Here

For out-of-town Heat diehards who’ll be touring the city during the team’s Big Apple visit, here’s a list of sports bars/restaurants around Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center to hang out at before, during and after the games against the Nets and Knicks on Jan. 10 and 12, respectively:

Brooklyn, New York

200 Fifth
200 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn

If you’re searching for some classic game-time grub, look no further than 200 Fifth. Chicken wings are served in a variety of flavors, like sweet chili, Jamaican jerk, traditional buffalo, drunken (lager and cayenne) or their signature sweet and sour. The bar has over 100 televisions for your sports-viewing pleasure and closes at 2 a.m. on Fridays.

The Montrose 
47 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn

Hungry for some homemade pub food? The Montrose serves up the half-pound Brooklyn Breakfast Burger (an angus beef burger stuffed with mac and cheese and a fried egg), as well as jalapeño mac and cheese with bacon. It’s open from 4:30 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Kick Axe Throwing
622 Degraw Street, Brooklyn

Kick Axe Throwing offers beer, malt beverages, wine, snacks and Table 87 coal-oven pizza – but it’s not a sports bar. There are no televisions on site. None. But, as a member of a party or simply as a walk-in, you can, as its website states, play darts with axes. To be exact, you’re paying for the thrill of throwing hatchets at a (bullseye) target. Kick Axe Throwing typically opens at noon on Fridays (closes at 1:30 a.m.), and there are also locations in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

40/40 Club by Tanduay Rum

If you’re not actually going to the game but still want to enjoy the atmosphere at Barclays Center and watch Nets vs. Heat on television on Jan. 10, 40/40 Club by Tanduay Rum is the place. After purchasing access to the club – and entering through BC’s Calvin Klein VIP gate – guests enjoy an all-inclusive buffet, and complimentary beer, wine and liquor.

Clyde Frazier’s Wine and Dine
485 10th Avenue

7 Iconic NYC Holiday Movie Landmarks

Some of the most iconic holiday films take place in NYC, which makes sense – there’s something extra magical about the city that never sleeps when it’s even more aglow with Christmas lights.

For native New Yorkers and tourists alike, a guide of the most classic scenes and where to relive them is an ideal ‘Saturday in December’ activity. Along the way, snap a photo at every stop to compile an epic Instagram story of the entire NYC holiday film roadmap.

No better place to start than with the pinnacle of Christmas movies, the 1947 classic “Miracle on 34th Street.” First stop: Macy’s Herald Square, one of the last remaining turn-of-the-century department stores where “Miracle” was filmed. Snap a photo outside the well-known façade, or with Macy’s resident Santa Claus to stay true to the plot.

Macy's Herald Square

Your next stop is just a 10-minute subway ride away to The Seagram Building. It’s home to two holiday tales — “The Family Man” and “Scrooged.” While Nicolas Cage probably won’t saunter into your photo, it’s worth a stop in to see if the Ghost of Christmas Past might appear. Such a sighting would certainly merit adding a #BahHumbug to your post.

The Seagram Building - The Family Man

Next up, take a turn around the Plaza Hotel’s luxe lobby à la Kevin McCallister in “Home Alone 2,” or even reserve a spot for afternoon tea to extend your time in the elaborately decorated Palm Court dining room.

Home Alone 2 Plaza Hotel

Just around the corner, step into John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale’s skates at Wollman Rink in Central Park, the perfect spot to re-create their romantic scene from “Serendipity.”

Another great skate spot: the rink outside the Rockefeller Center. Will Ferrell’s character in “Elf” had an enchanting first date there, while Kevin McCallister reunited with his mom in front of the magnificent 100-foot tree. No Christmas-time tour is complete without a stop here.

The Rink At Rockefeller Center

After taking in the grandest Christmas tree in the States, it’s time to search for your own, as in “When Harry Met Sally.” While New York City is full of tree lots, dedicated fans of the film can pick theirs up at Broadway and 96th Street, where the scene was originally shot.

The Plant Shed When Harry Met Sally

But if sitting back and enjoying a show feels like the perfect end to the day, a trip to see the Christmas Spectacular starring The Radio City Rockettes, who’ve appeared in countless flicks and make memories of every Christmas in New York picture perfect.
