Josh Carter and Kevin Michael Smith run a weekly show with DJ Rick James called Polished Comedy at Beauty Bar.


Six bars that have weekly comedy shows have been selected to feature their top line-ups in this years New York Comedy Festival. These shows are all produced by up-and-coming comedians and feature comics at mixed experience levels. Come see comics test out their new material in a not-so-typical comedy venue - bars! The participating Manhattan bars are Old Man Hustle (Lower East Side), Beauty Bar (East Village), and Local 138 (Lower East Side).

Participating Brooklyn bars are Gutter Bar (Williamsburg), Salzy (Park Slope), and Hungry Ghost (Fort Greene). Space is very limited at all of these venues and surprise drop-ins are expected! Reservations are encouraged.
