A lot of people in this city completely take for granted the amazing amount of entertainment that is available to them. Sure you can take in a broadway show, but those are expensive. Even movie tickets are ridiculous in this town. But have you thought about taking in some comedy? There are tons of theaters/comedy clubs to check out...and all are super close to Gramercy!
The PIT. This theater is located right across the street from the GW Residence at 123 24th Street. There are shows every night and some of them are free!
Next up is the famous UCB Theater. Started in part by Amy Poehler, this place often attracts former and current SNL cast members as well as actors from 30 Rock. It's incredible to watch as some of the biggest names in comedy perform a few feet away from you. Check out the calendar and make sure you reserve tickets! The shows here always sell out.
And last but not least is UCB's newest edition, UCBEast. Referred to as "The Beast" this is UCB's sister theater located on the Lower East Side. Though it doesn't get as many comedy stars the standup and improv is still great. Don't be surprised if the big names do show up though. A few weeks ago I got to see Aziz Ansari work out some new material. He was on stage for well over and hour and you know how much it cost? 5 bucks. Yeah. Take a look at these websites. You can have a lot of fun for very little money!
