“There’s a new comedy club and it’s already changing the comedy scene in New York,
which is not an easy thing to do.” - The Interrobang
West Side Comedy Club
201 West 75th Street
(Between Broadway and Amsterdam)
New York, NY, 10023
It is the brainchild of Eugene and his wife Nina who met while working together at Caroline’s Comedy Club in the early 90’s. It was an awesome time for comedy and they were there to witness some of today’s biggest names right at the beginning of their careers. (Louie C.K.; Dave Attell; Wanda Sykes; Dave Chappelle; and Jim Gaffigan), to name drop a few!
The Club is managed and booked by Gina Savage, a comedy veteran who worked at Broadway Comedy Club, Caroline’s and Comix and as a booker and manager with Barry Katz. Nina Ashe worked at Gotham Comedy Club for over 10 years and after retiring from the club, continued to use her experience from there to handle large parties and private events for Réunion Surf Bar.
Combining their years of comedy club, bar, and restaurant experience with their sheer love of stand-up and a reverence for comedians, Eugene and Nina are opening West Side Comedy Club. Their goal is to bring the fun, exciting, and sexy vibe they felt when they first started working in comedy clubs, to the cool, intimate space of West Side Comedy Club. They want to create a place where customers will love to laugh and comics will always want to perform and hang out.
