Unless an insider has clued you in that Robin Williams or Chris Rock will be doing a surprise show to try out some new material in some club The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater is the best comedy deal in town. They do everything from improv to sketch comedy and some of the performers you see today will end up on SNL or some Fox sitcom in the next few years. It's cheap $5 - $10 usually, no drink minimun or any other foolishness. A good cheap first date.

PROS: Cheap and Good
CONS: Sometimes you can wait on lines. Avoid weekends

Upright Citizen's is an Improv theater show. Most of the shows are very funny and the show is always a little different every night. It's also very cheap. Around $5-$10 a show depending which show you go to. It's a fun and cheap show to go to if you're on a budget or want to take a date. If you want tickets you better call ahead than wait on line.

We have gone here quite a few times and always had a good time. The improv shows on Sundays are great, as are the other comedy shows during the week. The best part is that all of them are cheap (under $10). They also serve alcohol and soda. Also, they do take reservations, but it is open seating once inside.

I was front row for a show in this tiny theater that had half the current cast of SNL doing hilarious improv based on true stories that were told by some guy, I forget who. It was Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Seth Meyers, and was Tina Fey there? Maybe. It was much better than anything Ive seen on SNL lately. Another time it was Horatio Sands and a few comedy-writer types providing improvised live director commentary track for and basically going MST on the Keanu Reeves clunker Point Break. Not all of what they do there is going to be great, but there are some talented folks perfoming there, and theyre thinkin, and trying out different stuff. And its affordable
