Why locals recommend it
A chill space that embraces otherness, I go here for the friendships and homey vibe. You’ll never feel like a stranger here! On Saturday nights, go for The Cast—an all-female cast improvises a new play each week, ranging from mime work to a performance of visual albums. These ladies play inside genuine spontaneity, allowing for discovery and fun. For a crazy Thursday night, go to Inspirado, the only improv competition in the world. Two teams choose a challenge inspired by one of the letters that spell Inspirado. Once for the “Oh Shit” challenge, a team had to get two people in the building to agree to get married in under an hour. THEY DID IT.

Don't get tricked by Times Square solicitors. Rather, laugh in their face by going to an actual comedy club---not for tourists.

My friend does improv comedy (she is really good) and introduced me to the Magnet. The tickets are very reasonable, and I guarantee it will cheer you up.
