Broadway Comedy Club offers all the fun of comedy in Times Square without the awkward run-ins with the law (although we’re not responsible for whatever trouble you get into afterwards). The bi-level space is one of the most renowned comedy venues in the city, and has hosted performers from HBO and Comedy Central plus big-name stars like David Spade and Jim Gaffigan. In addition to its regular stand-up shows, Broadway Comedy Club offers a full food menu, improv classes, and the New York Comedy School. — UpOut.com
Sketch groups may be no larger than 6 performers. Any kind of Sketch can be used for submission, we just want to see how funny you are! Keep in mind you will need to perform your sketch on a black box stage live (no heavy video elements such as cutaways nor large props). Sketches for the Semi-Finals can be no more than 6 minutes long.
