It’s indisputably true that in this day and age, a lot of good comedy can be enjoyed from the comfort of your bed, watching YouTube clips from a laptop you’ve carefully balanced on your stomach. No one would ever say that’s a bad thing. But then, there’s still a lot to be said for the gut-busting highs and bugs-under-the-skin lows that can only truly come from bearing firsthand witness to a live comedy show.
And Brooklyn’s got sort of an embarrassment of riches when it comes to options for live comedy these days, whether you’re interested in poorly-executed amateur sets or elaborate shows put on by the very best in the entire business. Also, a lot of them are free, meaning you can go ahead and buy yourself a couple of drinks (or some chicken wings) while you watch. Much better than staying in bed, we promise.
