Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre is by far the best comedy club in NYC. It kinda looks like a garage, so you don’t feel like some dude in an ill-fitting jacket is going to yell at you for not reaching the drink minimum. But more importantly, every show at UCB is freaking hilarious. I’ve never been to a show where I don’t have at least one uncontrollable laughing fit. Especially every Tuesday at Harold Night.
Harold Night is when some of their house improve teams perform. Each team takes a suggestion from the audience, and then does a series of improve scenes inspired by it. In a given night the subject matter will vary from mountain climbing to cantelopes to diamonds. And there’s always a good balance of inappropriate, punny, pop culture based and just plan painfully witty jokes. It will be the best $5 you spend on a Tuesday.
