Native New Yorkers opened Gotham Comedy Club in May 1996. Gotham Comedy Club was roundly praised at that time for its top to bottom design of the original 3,300 square foot space. "It's been ten years since a club of this magnitude opened in Manhattan." We felt that it was time for changes in the way comedy clubs have been perceived: all comedy and no ambiance. Over the past decade, Gotham Comedy Club has proven himself to be a leader in the industry, bringing comics such as Dave Chapelle, Lewis Black and Colin Quinn (to name a few) to his stage. Gotham Comedy Club has become the backdrop for many TV shows and films such as Jerry Seinfeld's 2002 Miramax film "Comedian" and Larry David's pilot of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
