If you’re looking for a new spot to get your laugh on, Long Island City has you covered. The Standing Room comedy club will be moving into the former Laughing Devil space on Vernon Blvd, and they’ll be offering something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a place to catch a comedy show, watch a game, or just grab some quality cocktails.
The official grand opening will be August 6, and the new spot will offer a unique way for locals to try out the venue. If you live nearby, bring in a piece of junk mail (catalog, circular, credit card offer, etc.) proving you live in the neighborhood, and you’ll receive two free tickets to any show through August 31. If you’re a resident of LIC, Astoria, Sunnyside, Woodside, or Greenpoint, sounds like a good way to get rid of those RCN offers!
The Standing Room will feature a cocktail menu created by the team from Angel Share in the East Village, and will partner with local restaurants to provide special desserts and small bites. If you love trivia night, you’ll be able to test your knowledge at their weekly quiz nights starting Tuesday, August 11. Carrying on the tradition of their predecessor, The Standing Room’s comedy programming will include Center City Comedy Night, which was the most popular weeknight show at the Laughing Devil.
Cocktails and comedy: sounds like a great combination! Who’s excited for the new addition to the neighborhood?
