Did you know there are several great comedy shows in Brooklyn? Most people think that Manhattan or the Village is where you need to go to get the best comedy in the city, but what many don’t realize is that some of the best comics in the country and in NYC perform all over the city including the Brooklyn comedy clubs!
While I am a huge fan of the Village Underground and the comedy scene over yonder in Manhattan, I’ve grown to love the comedy scene over here in Brooklyn and dare I say prefer seeing a show at a comedy club in Brooklyn nowadays as the venues here are pretty unique and some even intimate with smaller crowds.
Get your laughs in at these best comedy shows in Brooklyn that are happening now from some of the best comedy clubs in Brooklyn and in NYC.
