Two of my favorite Brits, Matt and Emma, visited me in New York earlier this summer. I suppose technically they were here on vacation, and I just happen to live here, but I like to think that they came all this way just to see me!
On one of the nights of their visit, we stayed up late to see a comedy show at NYC’s famous Comedy Cellar. The Wednesday night show starts at 11:30pm and goes for at least three hours, so be sure to take a nap/drink lots of coffee beforehand!
The Comedy Cellar is known as the best comedy club in New York, and regularly has famous performers drop in for a set. In fact, one of the most fun things about it is that you never know who will be performing, or who you’ll be surprised by. The night that we went, two SNL cast members performed their acts. Regular performers also include Louis C.K., Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer.
One of the things that I liked most about the Comedy Cellar is that many of the comedians teased the audience members during their sets. And since our table was in the very front, we were kept on our toes the whole night by being singled out by the comedians! It was all in fun, and made the performances that much more exciting.

I’m so glad I got to see Matt and Emma again! Thanks for coming to New York just for me!
