Midnight Stand Up


It's Saturday. It's late, but you still want to PAR-TAY. Come see THE BEST stand ups New York City has to offer. Sit back, relax, have a couple of beers, and laugh so hard it'll count as an ab workout. Then go home, go to sleep, wake up, go to brunch the next morning, and try to retell your friends one of the jokes you heard last night. Your friends will laugh. And they'll love you for it.
