TAP-NY Comedy Night at Stand Up NY

May 4, 2023 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

We’re excited to invite you out to our second comedy event, after great success last year!

Happy Hour begins at 6:45 PM, and the comedy show will begin promptly at 8:00 PM and end before 9:30PM. There will be an hour after the show for mingling. Please note that due to the nature of the venue, your seat is not guaranteed if you arrive after the show starts at 8:00 PM.

Tickets are limited, and prices will go up fast, so secure your spot before it is too late – you don’t want to miss the hottest event this spring! We sold out last year weeks before the event!

Pricing (excluding Eventbrite fees)

  • Early Bird: $25/person
  • General Admission: $30/person

Because Stand Up NY has generously waived their two drink minimum and has also worked with us for a special ticket price, TAP highly encourages attendees to purchase drinks at the venue.

At this time, admission will not be offered at the door, but this may change closer to the event. Please also be advised that tickets are not transferrable and only tickets directly procured through TAP-NY’s Eventbrite will be honored.
