Over the years, a number of big name comedians have performed here as well, including Woody Allen, George Carlin and Joan Rivers. A brick wall forms the backdrop for all these acts, including many you may not have heard about.

Village Underground also hosts open-mic nights and comedy performances at its sub-venue, the Comedy Cellar. Drop in for a memorable musical night.
