Best Comedy Show

  • Late Night Basement at Pine Box Rock Shop

    12 Grattan St., at Bogart St., Bushwick; 718-366-6311

    Late Night Basement stands out from Brooklyn’s countless free comedy nights thanks to its “live taping” feel (easygoing host Chris Rose always opens with a monologue), the show’s impressive guests (Yael Stone, the Lucas Brothers, W. Kamau Bell), prerecorded segments (like “Lil Jon or Shakespeare?”), and a postshow dance party. And two-for-one beer specials mean things tend to get a little loosey-goosey—good news for those looking to shimmy up alongside fellow chuckleheads.
