Last week was very exciting for Stand Up NY, with the biggest surprise being: Tracy Morgan stopped by. In his hilarious 20 minute set, the all-star comedian joked about his car accident and his recent road to recovery. While he had taken a break from stand-up for some time, Tracy was just as charming, raunchy and hilarious as he use to be. This set was practice for Tracy, who is going on a 2016 comedy tour starting January 22*.
In addition to Tracy, throughout the week the club was jam packed with New York City’s wittiest up-and-coming comedians. Featured comedians included: Mark Normand (Inside Amy Schumer), Greer Barnes (Chapelle’s Show), Tom Cotter (America’s Got Talent) and Sherrod Small (Jimmy Kimmel Live!). High energy, a great bar scene and hilarious comedians, made last week a great time.
Then on Thursday night, Stand Up NY thrived as we presented three New Year's Eve shows featuring our top A-list comedians. Judah Friedlander, Yamaneika Saunders, Kurt Metzger, Yannis Pappas and Dante Nero all performed. Non-stop laughter + watching the ball drop + champagne was a great way to spend New Year’s Eve.
And last but not least, Stand Up NY has a great week ahead of us. Determined to be the #1 comedy club in the city, we’re bringing in Chris Distefano (Guy Code), Myq Kaplan (Conan), Damien Lemon (Comedy Central). And hey--you never know who might just stop by!
