Bringing New York the Best Comedy Since the ‘80s

Since New York Comedy Club’s founding in 1989, different locations, different owners, and different decades haven’t stopped this New York comedy scene staple. As the stand-up world continues to evolve, New York Comedy Club has followed suit"all the while staying true to its conception as a place dedicated to live comedy without the frills and serving up nothing but the best comedy shows in the city. Our venues continue to set the standard of what a comedy club should be, and the intimate showrooms capture the roar of the crowd nightly and provide an “anything can happen” feeling that only live comedy can provide and a popular backdrop for comedy specials. Acting as a career-launching pad for many of comedy’s biggest names, New York Comedy Club continues to be the spot to see the next big act, as well as the comics you know and love. And you never know who might pop in for a surprise guest spot!

The New York Comedy Club is now regarded as not only one of the top clubs in New York, but in the country. Opening its doors to a second location in the East Village in 2018, becoming the only comedy club in the country with two venues in the same city under one name. NYCC continues to be an integral part of the comedy world and produces the most popular and best comedy shows for comedy fans for decades to come.

Panelist Mark Ridley
Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle, the first comedy club in Michigan was opened January 4th, 1979. Tim Allen and Dave Coulier began their comedy careers on the first Comedy Castle stage. The current Royal Oak location has been in the former Daily Tribune newspaper facility since February 1st, 1990. Mark vowed after six previous locations that if he ever had to move again, it will be in a 400-seat mobile home that comes right to your neighborhood.

Today, Mark still handpicks the club’s talent, searching the entire country and Canada for the very best talent available. On any given night, audiences have seen surprise guests such as Ron White, Lewis Black, Keegan Michael Key, David Copperfield, Brian Regan, and many other comedians pop in to watch the show or do a guest set.

Mark Ridley founded the three-comedian format which is a standard in today’s comedy club industry. Many of the local comedians come out of open mic night or through the comedy classes taught at Comedy Castle.

Comedy Castle hosts many charity fundraisers for the metro Detroit area and it can provide faith based to PG 13 comedy acts. The Salvation Army has their annual “Comedy for A Cause” with Mark’s help in producing their show at the club each year.

Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle is largely regarded as one of the top 18+ comedy clubs in the country and is the club to perform at for many of the up and coming and established comedians. Just walk the halls at Comedy Castle to see early photos of Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O’Donnell, Garry Shandling, Bob Saget, Kathleen Madigan, and many more of today’s stars who have performed at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle.
