The folks behind New York’s most respected stand-up club The Comedy Cellar are opening up a second Comedy Cellar club this weekend. The announcement was made via email yesterday The new room is located right around the corner from the old one in Greenwich Village, at 130 W 3rd Street, off 6th Avenue. Here’s owner Noam Dworman’s description of the new room:
“It’s a larger and more comfortable version of the Comedy Cellar. It’s a great room, and we feel it will become the most important room in the country. Same brick walls, same Comedy Cellar stage, same lighting, same amazing atmosphere - we think you’ll be hard-pressed to remember you’re in a different location.”
The new room opens this Friday, and there will be no cover for the Friday and Saturday night shows. Colin Quinn, Keith Robinson, and Tom Papa will all be performing at these opening night shows. The Comedy Cellar’s management has not made it clear whether the plan is for the Cellar to move to this location or not, but for now, they’ll just have two rooms.
