The Stand came to the neighborhood with a mission to raise the standard of comedy clubs in New York City. Not only does the new comedy club attract hilarious sought-after comedians like Jim Gaffigan and Janeane Garofalo on a regular basis, but it does so with class. Officially, The Stand is both a restaurant and a comedy club. Each can ‘stand’ on their own, but it is the combination that makes The Stand so special. Unlike other comedy clubs, there are no drink minimums. The menu at the restaurant (which also serves the club) is the result of a delicious collaboration with Hell’s Kitchen finalist Seth Levine (Levine has also opened five other successful Manhattan restaurants including Wine and Roses, RSVP and Sons of Essex.). Stop by for a laugh and some amazing food.
