  • Watch PIT house teams Local 154 and Borealis on Weds nights @ 9PM!
  • The $5 ATM fee may seem harsh, but bring your receipt to the bar for $5 off your drink!
  • Winner of Best Comedy Club in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Go for Wed. free shows, or sign up for a class yourself.
  • No need to pre-game at any nearby bars before attending a PIT show. There's a bar right in the lobby! And an impressive one at that. Drinks are allowed in the actual theatres as well. *burp*
  • Check out Monday night downstairs for more free shows. Monderground! Starts at 8pm.
  • Almost every bartender's name starts with 'J.'
  • Intimate space to catch some sidesplitting improv especially on Wednesdays when all the shows are free from 6-11pm. They serve wine and beer too!
  • Free improv shows all night on Mondays and Wednesdays on the Underground stage.
  • Saw Gypsy Danger and was happy to see what a fun performance you can see for almost nothing in NY. Would definitely go again.
  • Some of the best shows in the city! The CHRIS and PAUL show!!
  • Don't come here! It's closed! Go to 123 E. 24th Street instead.
  • The bartenders here are great. Service is quick and pleasant. Happy hour is $1 off from 5-7 pm. Seats in the theater are pretty small and uncomfortable. I was smushed the entire time.
  • Free and cheap comedy (mostly improv) nightly. Before 7, drinks are $1 off.
  • Tight seats.
  • The owner was born in Esfahan, Iran, which is why Esfahan time is posted among major world cities.
  • bom isso ae, muito show de bola
  • Get Hard Cider and a shot of Fireball in it. It's the best drink for the best price in the city!
  • Still needs plans for July 4th? Look no further! The PIT and Student Driver are thrilled to bring you Third Annual Indie-Pendence Day Festival. **SHOWS EVERY HOUR FROM NOON UNTIL MIDNIGHT!**
