Founded by the late, great Rodney Dangerfield as a place for young comics to try out material that was often too dark or “out there” for the mainstream stand-up crowd, Dangerfield’s continues to offer a lineup of top-notch comics that draws a diverse clientele of tourists, aspiring comics, and everyone in between.

Guests are ushered past a wall of alumni photos featuring the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Andrew Dice Clay, and Chris Rock, and into a dingy black cocktail lounge, where candlelit booths surround a small stage.

Once the show starts, the crowd of out-of-towners, couples, and co-workers are treated to an hour of high-energy comedy – not to mention a fair share of aggressive catcalling and heckling – as several different comedians take the stage.

The laughs are largest at weekend shows when more notable stand-up comics perform their energetic sets, while the weekdays generally feature up-and-comers who hit the stage with something to prove and nothing to lose.

Patrons looking for a classic no-frills comedy club need look no further than Dangerfield’s, a punchy, down-to-earth joint whose hallowed halls have heard fiery digs and stifled guffaws from some of the world’s greatest stand-ups.

Tip from Lucas:

Be sure to make a reservation online before you go – the staff is infamous for charging more than you’ve been told the cover charge would be, and for doing so after the show is over when they ring up your tab. Geez, I can’t get no respect!

Dangerfield's User Reviews

I forgot why I came here
Chris K. Nov 19, 2012
The first thing against Dangerfield's is its location--unlike every other comedy club in the city, this one is situated in a neighborhood where nothing really goes on, except for the occasionally group of club-hoppers or jet-setters getting dinner and a drink nearby (and that, in my observations, is rarely the old-world comedy club crowd). Second is its selection--while it used to showcase hot young comics way back when, the current calendar is a little lacking compared to, say, the Comedy Cellar. Still, the interior has a nice homely atmosphere, and in general there's a fun sense of the owner, Mr. Dangerfield himself, still hanging around the joint, tugging his collar. If there's someone you want to see here, come through, but otherwise, look elsewhere.
