Funny business: Comedy club replacing comedy club on 4th Street

The coming soon signage is up on Fourth Street between Second Avenue and the Bowery for New York Comedy Club.

They are taking over the former home of EastVille Comedy Club, who moved out to Brooklyn last month.

This will be the second location for the New York Comedy Club, which opened in 1989 on 24th Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

"We're very excited about being part of such a vibrant neighborhood full of all kinds of other arts and performance venues," Amy Hawthorne, the club's director of operations, told me via email.

As of now, the club is looking at a mid-July debut (though they may have a soft opening before then).

"We'll be renovating the space to be more in keeping with the look and character of our original Gramercy location — darker room, brick wall background for the stage, and an audio system custom designed for the space by our co-owner, Scott Lindner, who is also a professional audio engineer," she said.

Lindner and Emilio Savone bought the New York Comedy Club in 2014 after years of working in entertainment marketing and live comedy production.
