'THE STAND RESTAURANT & COMEDY CLUB' BRINGS THE LAUGHS TO GRAMERCY THIS SUMMER
Set to open this summer, The Stand Restaurant & Comedy Club brings world-class comedians to Gramercy Park in an intimate live stand-up comedy showroom seven nights a week, in its bi-level venue located at 239 Third Avenue.
Brought to you by Patrick Milligan, Cris Italia, Paul Italia and David Kimowitz, who each maintained a strong presence in the comedy scene over the past ten years through their company Cringe Humor, The Stand will undoubtedly become New York's premier comedy club destination.
Originally a website, Cringe Humor offered reviews and promotion of some of NYC's funniest performers. Having gone through many stages of evolution, Cringe Humor will now be opening its doors to their first comedy club and restaurant venue called The Stand. The comedy club boasts a 100 seat intimate show room similar to the venues where Cringe Humor shows were first produced. The Stand will also feature a 60 seat restaurant, serving upscale comfort food, with Chef Seth Levine’s restaurant group controlling the kitchen.
Founder Patrick Milligan began booking shows across New York City in April, 2004 featuring Cringe Humor approved performers. The shows became legendary in the underground scene and would eventually become fixtures in some of the most popular club venues throughout Manhattan. Cringe Humor eventually became part of the New York Comedy Festival and New York Underground Comedy Festival.
In 2005 Patrick partnered up with Cris Italia, Paul Italia and David Kimowitz and founded Cringe Humor Productions, focusing on developing programming for web and TV. In 2006 the group created CH Entertainment, a management company aiding the careers of both established and up and coming performers.
Among their other endeavors, the company launched Cringe Humor Records in December, 2011 and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Comedy charts with Rich Vos' "Still Empty Inside".
Cringe Humor continues to live up to its legacy with the opening of The Stand Restaurant & Comedy Club. Its intimate setting allows audiences to enjoy the great food, world-class talent and riotous laughs up close. For tickets and information visit (http://thestandnyc.com).
