Why locals love it

Known locally as UCB East (the second location of the original Upright Citizens Brigade in Chelsea), this accredited comedy school and club delivers stand-up and improv comedy shows 7 days a week. For the local who loves comedy and is on a budget, UCB East provides a cheap good time and the opportunity to discover the next great talent.

Why you should visit it

Many original productions happen here and you simply cannot go wrong by spontaneously giving this venue a visit. You never know which famous comedian will show up to jump in a sketch or practice some new material.

Special tip

Bring cash since they do not accept credit cards, and arrive early to get a seat or risk standing for the entire performance.

It's one of 2 major place to see comedy. This is one of the best schools of comedy in the United States, Second City in Chicago being the other.
