I went to a 7:30 show of Assscat on a Sunday. It was just as hilarious as I hoped. The performers are top-notch crazy-talented. Improv talent amazes me. This group is among the best of the best. Many of the faces I knew from TV/film...More

Got free entry to Asssscat 3000 on Sunday 9:30pm. The whole 90min session is improvisation, and included a special guest (famous actor). All was really well done and funny, the participants worked fantastically together. Reasonable priced drinks available and only asked for a voluntary donation...More

I love improv but it's miserable to stand up through an entire performance. They sell more seats than they have tickets. We arrived 20 minutes early and there were no seats.

Although not crazy funny it was fascinating and entertaining to watch the performers think on their feet. Overall a fun experience at a great price.

My second visit to the UCB Chelsea Theater and again a thoroughly entertaining show. Brilliant Cast, some of them actually appear in the Terrific Movie; "Don't Think Twice" doing the best improv in NYC!! The theater is small and intimate and each show sells out...More

I've been several times. Though some shows are better than others, I've always had a good experience. My biggest thing is that I love that it's CHEAP. And they don't do that "mandatory" drink thing that a lot of other comedy places do. You get...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
