For 30 years, New York's legendary Comedy Cellar has served as the
launching pad for greatest stand up comedians in the world. Colin Quinn, Dave Chappelle, Ray Romano, Dave Attell, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, Dane Cook, Robert Kelly and Greg Giraldo are just a few of the comedians who began as Cellar regulars.
But classic stage performances have never been the only show going on at the Cellar. The biggest comedians in the world come to sit at the table upstairs, where comedians come to argue and discuss the events of the day and their lives, sharpening their their comedy knives on each other. This kibitzing (an inspiration for Comedy Central's Tough Crowd), has always been a private affair... until now.
Join us for a weekly peek into the happenings at the Comedy Cellar's comedian table, where the funniest people in the world debate and discuss. Subscribe now and don't miss a second of it.

One of the top rated podcasts
What a great show! And I would rather listen to Comedy Cellar podcast over Joe Rogan any day. Love Noam, Periel and Dan!
I want to come to the Comedy Cellar some day.
Noam - stop being so micro aggressive!
Like baseman2112 said
I just listened to Noam pull this exact same stunt on Jon Laster. As soon as Jon started making his opposing (and logical) point, Noam decided he could not have that and cut him off. I’ve had enough.
Used to be a fan
Had been listening to this pod since Noam and Dustin fought on YKWD. But I can’t any longer...Noam constantly steamrolls any guest, especially if they’re black, who opposes him and foams at the mouth about the “woke” left. Let Dan bring the show back to comedy because this is just an audio version of a Fox News show at this point...
