Comedian Curator

Even though summer has officially come to an end, Fall is not the time to lock yourself in and stay at home. Instead, it should be about going out and doing something positive, and what better way than with a laugh. Our stand-up comedian curator @mpsomerstein, has curated a list of shows and venues that will give you, your friends, or date enough energy to keep on living and continuing your life no matter what the weathers like outside.

1. Bomb Shelter Comedy at The Gaf West

Every Thursday at 8pm at The Gaf West bar in Hell’s Kitchen, Bomb Shelter Comedy brings you some of the best comics in NYC.

Rec by: @mpsomerstein

The Tiny Cupboard is an underground indie comedy club in Bushwick, Brooklyn founded by a couple Amy Wong & Matt Rosenblum. In 2019, it started off as a music, comedy and experimental experiences in a tiny Bushwick art studio and when the pandemic hit, they morphed into a rooftop comedy club. Now they opened their indoor pink comedy room, and use their original tiny room mainly for open mics now.

3. Q.E.D.

27-16 23rd Ave, Queens, NY 11105

Rec by: @mpsomerstein

Q.E.D. was created by 23-year Astoria, Queens resident Kambri Crews. This is the only independent, woman-owned and operated venue for the arts in Astoria, Queens in NYC. At Q.E.D. you’ll find stand-up comedy shows with performers ranging from beginners to the very famous. Fun fact, Q.E.D. is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase “quod erat demonstrandum” which translates to “that which was demonstrated.”

4. Old Man Hustle Comedy Club

39 Essex St, New York, NY 10002

Rec by: @mpsomerstein

Old Man Hustle Comedy Bar is a hip comedy club with two different locations in NYC. The original location is a small bar in the LES and the one at Williamsburg is a full scale club featuring the best comics in NYC. Make sure to follow their socials to keep up with their latest shows!
