Did you hear the one about the comedy club opening tonight on 4th Street?

The New York Comedy Club is making its East Village debut tonight at 85 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

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

Here's what Amy Hawthorne, the club's director of operations, told me via email back in May:

"We're very excited about being part of such a vibrant neighborhood full of all kinds of other arts and performance venues.

"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."

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

You can find the East Village schedule here.

They are taking over the former home of the EastVille Comedy Club, which departed for Brooklyn in April.
