The first thing you need to know about the return of indoor stand-up comedy in New York City: There’s an actual person standing in front of you.
“I’ve had people that have literally tried to treat the live show like they’re watching Netflix: ‘Can you say that again?’ ” stand-up Matt Richards told The Post. “Did you just hit rewind on live comedy? Are you s – – tting me?”
It may look different than it did in the Before Times, but New York’s iconic stand-up comedy scene is officially back, thanks to rising vaccination rates and added safety measures. Indoor clubs were allowed to reopen on April 2 at one-third capacity, and crowds have been lining up and selling out shows.
