No matter how lauded or venerable it may be, seeing any comedy venue survive these times is a blessing. There have been plenty of closures of celebrated comedy institutions around the country and there will very likely be more as the latest stimulus bill will likely fall short of what many venues need in terms of relief.
With that in mind, it’s great to see that The Comedy Cellar, one of the most respected comedy clubs in the country, is still standing as they get ready to earnestly put on a new round of virtual shows via Mint Comedy.
The very first one of these will happen on the first day of the new year at 12PM PT/3PM ET. The line-up is worthy of you being up that early post-NYE with Sean Patton, Dan Soder, Jessica Kirson, Mike Yard, Matthew Broussard, and Cipha Sounds (the sort of line-up that you’d see at the Cellar in the before times)
Tickets for live-stream access are only $7.99 and you can (and should) get them here.
