The World-Famous Comic Strip Live
1568 Second Ave., Upper East Side, Manhattan
Since 1975, this renowned stand-up comedy club has played host to some of the best comedians in the City and has even helped launch the careers of many (think Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock). The walls that flank the entranceway are jam-packed with autographed photos of some of the club's most recognizable former and current performers, giving the space the feel of a comedy hall of fame. Grab a drink at the tiny bar outside the main room for a chance to chat it up with the talent as they enter and exit, and be sure to reserve your ticket before the show to guarantee yourself a seat.
