A longstanding Manhattan landmark, Stand Up NY opened its doors in 1986 and has kept them open ever since. Stand Up NY is the city's premiere destination for urbanites looking to have a good laugh. Some of America's most beloved jokers – think Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld and Louis CK – are regulars that have graced the stage of what New York Magazine calls the "incubator of stand-up nobility.” Tucked into a residential block of 78th Street on the Upper West Side, it is a classic reborn by renovation. Purchased in 2008 by entrepreneurs and best-buddies Gabriel Waldman and Dani Zoldan, Stand Up NY is no longer just a dimly-lit comedy club, it's also a great event space. Boasting a sleek and modern design (the brainchild of famed nightclub impresario Steve Lewis and Marc Dizon – the guys behind Marquee, Butter and Hudson Terrace) and fired-up versions of everyone's favorite bar snacks, Stand Up NY has distinguished themselves from their competitors. With a showroom that accommodates over 125 guests, you'll have room to burst into hysterics without knocking over your neighbor's scotch. Stand Up NY features some of the brightest young talent in the business as well as bigger names returning to the city that gave them their start.
