Our season opener on June 23rd will feature comics Michael Che, Kevin Avery and Vanessa Hollingshead, among others.

Our shows have been covered by the NYTimes, listed in the NYPost as a "Hot Weekend Pick," and named "Best Weekend Entertainment Bet" by Time Out NY/WNBC. Check www.nylaughs.org for details on this week's headliners.

As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
