About Gotham Comedy Club

Native New Yorkers Chris Mazzilli and Michael Reisman opened their 10,000 sq. ft. Gotham Comedy Club in May 1996. Over the past decade, Mazzilli 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."

Currently, Gotham Comedy Club hosts Comedy Central's "Live At Gotham" which features the country's hottest comedians doing fresh stand-up. Each week, a new host introduces up-and-coming comedians for an hour of original comedy. Last year, NBC's Emmy-nominated series "Last Comic Standing" brought their dueling comedians to duke it out on Gotham Comedy Club's stage.
