The first two suggestions are family-friendly. The second two are for adults only.
LOL Times Square – This family-friendly comedy show features national headliners, local favorites and exciting new talent, giving you the opportunity to laugh out loud with some of the best and brightest comedians. Each show features several top comics, and club regulars include performers seen on The Tonight Show, Letterman, Conan, The Late Late Show, Comedy Central, HBO, BET and more.
IMPROV 4 KIDS – It’s not often you can use the phrases “family friendly” and “comedy show” in the same sentence, but that’s exactly what you get with this show. No two show are the same as members of Eight Is Never Enough’s high-energy improv troupe create songs and skits on the spot based on audience suggestions. Lots of audience volunteers – especially kids – get to join the action on stage, too.
SUNDAY NIGHT LIVE – Close out the weekend with lots of laughs as New York Comedy Club presents Sunday Night Live, hosted by New York’s Prince of Comedy, Jamie Roberts. The lineup features a mix of nationally known headliners and up-and-coming stars from New York’s thriving comedy scene. You’ve seen many of the performers on Comedy Central, HBO, Showtime, the biggest network late-night shows and more. Casual dress – jeans and sneakers are fine.
SUNDAY NIGHT IMPROV – The cream of the improv crop comes together for an improvisational comedy jam session on Sunday nights, and you’re invited to toss out ideas and witness the resulting hilarity. Since the show’s debut in 1992, it has attracted the finest performers from around the New York area, mixing and matching cast members from groups like the Chicago City Limits, First Amendment, The Unusual Suspects, The PIT, and UCB Theater. In addition to improvised skits, playlets and games, each 90-minute performance also includes a series of songs composed on the spot, with audience-concocted titles and styles ranging from operetta to rap. You’re invited to arrive 90 minutes early to take part in a free improv class.
