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.

Gone downhill the last year-ish (need better guests more consistently)
I love listening to this cast, but only when they have one of my favorite amazing comedians on as a guest… Otherwise I can’t listen to any episode without one of the greats on (Big Jay Oakerson, Robert Kelly, Chris Distefano, Mark Normand, Rich Voss…). The last year or so the guests seem to have really gone downhill. This is a podcast from The Stand comedy club, they should have some of these amazing guests on at least every other episode… I do not want to just trash this podcast because it’s a great podcast when they do have an amazing comedian on… You gotta bring the great comedians (Tim Dillon, Luis J Gomez, Zac Amico, Yannis Pappas, Joe List…. Just to name a few more) on way more often, there are a ton to choose from & your The Stand in NYC!
One of the top rated podcasts
A great and informative show. However, I would rather see comedians on this show. Seriously, with the access to all the famous comedians in New York, stick to interviewing them! Can you bring back the “live from the comedy cellar”!
Leave Noam out of this podcast. He should do his own political podcast.
Would love to see Dan and Periel host their own podcast with comedians!
