Rooftop partners with the top comedy and performance venues around the world to bring you the best, most cutting-edge (and, yes, funniest) professional comedy.
We record, produce and distribute real comedy the way it's supposed to be: raw, uncensored, and not filtered through Hollywood or a bunch of uptight corporate suits. Our club partners reflect the range of amazing comedy that's out there; from the biggest theaters and "A" rooms, to intimate alternative venues pushing the edge of performance comedy. We work on behalf of our comedians and venue partners to reach a larger audience of true comedy fans, further build their followings, and make them additional money along the way. And we give real comedy fans access to the best comedy from around the globe.
New York, NY, USA — Originally the Comic Strip featured comics, singers, magicians and novelty acts. We soon realized that stand up comedy was the only way to go and we've been a comedy Showcase club ever since. New York Magazine calls Comic Strip Live "the most expertly booked club in the city."
