If you do not have a reservation, you can stand in line to put down your name. Before the show starts they will go through the list of names for the last seats. We were 2nd in that line (waiting for 40 minutes), and later...More

My first tip - make a reservation! This place always fills up. You can get on a waiting list if people don't show up for their reservations, but honestly, just try to plan ahead and book online. You don't have to pre-pay for tickets, they...More

This is an historic comedy venue in Greenwich NYC. Do not forget to make reservations. Night show at 9:30. You can also drop in earlier and put your name in the waiting list.

I'm so happy I've been there. We were at the Village Underground venue, 9:30pm show. I've rarely laughed that much. Same thing for my friends.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
