Get ready for Weird and Wonderful Comedy Month Edition! We’re bringing you the weirdest, coolest, and most wonderful comedy shows in New York City this weekend. So buckle up and get ready to laugh until beer or whatever comes out of your nose…

BLANK! The Musical
Manhattan, Midtown
Improv, Musical

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…a brand new musical being created before your very eyes. That’s right, each night, “BLANK! The Musical” takes the stage — with no script, no rehearsal, and no idea what will happen — to perform a brand-new smash hit musical… that you help to create! 


Everybody Hates Us (But Not Tonight, Baby!)
Manhattan, Downtown
Stand-up, Variety

What would you do on this stage if you stopped caring about how other people felt about you? Find out with Betsy and Dara’s wildly irreverent comedy show featuring some of the best stand-ups in NYC, a house band, and a free comedy month cocktail if you have a TodayTix Comedy Pass. Yeah, we’re v. obsessed with this show and also the wallpaper in this pic.


Manhattan, Downtown
Improv, Sketch, Gameshow

You have to get to BATSU. What is BATSU, you ask? Literally, what isn’t BATSU? It’s a comedy show, but it’s also a game show, and a sushi dinner, and a party. There’s also a giant chicken and a samurai that will give you a free shot of sake if you have a TodayTix Comedy Pass. (Are you sick of us pushing the Comedy Pass already? Honestly, it’s such a good deal that we can’t stop/won’t stop).


Sherrod Small
Brooklyn, Barclays Center

We love EastVille Comedy Club’s new space right near the Barclay’s center in Brooklyn and we also love Sherrod Small so this is basically our ideal night, especially with a pit stop at Morgan’s Barbecue.

Queens, Astoria
Sketch, Storytelling

This is one of those one-of-a-kind shows that the innovative folks at QED are known for because it’s mix of stories about relationships and it’s advice from REAL-LIVE THERAPISTS ONSTAGE. Seriously!!


ANYBODY: Improvised Hip-Hopera
Manhattan, Downtown
Improv, Musical

If you’ve got a TodayTix Comedy Pass, grab your free wine or beer at CAVEAT and join North Coast for a historical performance of a fully improvised “hip-hopera” around your favorite historical figure’s life. Nikola Tesla? Bawse. Frederick Douglass? Flawless. Louisa May Alcott? Mic drop.


Sparkle Hour
Brooklyn, Williamsburg
Sketch, Variety

The world has too much irony so leave the sarcasm to the Twitterverse and enjoy some amazing comedians creating original performances ranging from the earnest to the outrageous, mixing sincerity with comedy. The featured acts are fierce: We’re talking Cole Escola, Maya Sharma, Rachel Kaly, Brett Schneider, Golden Delicious, and more. Honestly, this show will leave you feeling sparkly AF and ready to take on this dark ironic world.
