An UnPlowable Masterpiece!

The weather here in New York City the last few days sure been frightful, but the energy inside (and now OUTSIDE) the Comic Strip Live! has been incredibly delightful!

If you walked up 2nd Avenue in the last couple days, you have seen that the Comic Strip logo has found its way to become craftfully embedded within a giant pack of snow! Only in New York!

And ONLY at the World Famous Comic Strip Live! For over 35 years, your official home for stand up comedy.
