These places can be hit and miss - but that is not the point. It's a breading ground and showcase opportunity for up and coming talent. It might not hit the spot on the night - but like a fine wine, can age and mature,...More

Get there a little early, you will have to stand in line, but it's so worth it. Hilarious, smart, witty improv. Their Del Close Marathon is awesome!

If you like improv, this place is a must see in NY. We saw the OSFUG: The Fast F**kin" Sketch Show. It's about an hour long show and they fit a lot of small skits into a very short time - hence the name. It's...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

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
