The Stand is basically a divey comedy club, so you could almost wear whatever casual jeans and t-shirt you like. I however, like to be a bit more playful, so how about a polka dot blue onesy. Fun but not too dressed up.

It’s Comedy Week in New York City, and if you miss it, don’t worry, the Stand on 3rd Avenue and 19th has a restaurant upstairs and comedy show downstairs year round offering great playful comfort food and good laughs.

The restaurant run by Chef Seth Levine (Georgica, Hotel Chantelle) puts together affordable “bar food” that’s inventive on the familiar. TRY Spicy Tuna Cannolis, Cheeseburger Dumplings and the Crabcake.

Shows at 8pm or 10pm offer a variety of comedians- most very funny and you never know who will show up!
