We recently saw the fabulous comedy show, 15 Villainous Fools, at The Pit Loft theater on West 29th street during our trip to NYC. Wow! What a fun and hilarious show! The tickets were cheap, $10.00 on Today Tix, and the performance was a blast....More

We wandered in on a friday night and there were plenty of shows to choose from as there are 3 stages and a show about every hour/hour and 1/2. Tickets are reasonably priced and there is a bar that you can grab a drink before...More

This was a great club to see so guys really doing well at comedy. The place is very friendly and has a great atmosphere. There is a bar and snacks but you can bring your own.

Great, small venue with a decent little bar attached. Loved the production I saw and enjoyed the small scale of the venue. Felt like we were almost on top of the stage.

So, you're visiting NYC looking for some entertainment, but don't want to cash in a CD to buy Broadway tickets (even if you can get them). Try a show or two at the PIT for some hilarious improv for the humble price of $5 per...More

The crew working the PIT in Dec 2015 was absolutely hilarious. Knowing that every show is different I would/will go back again! Value for money in Manhattan cannot be beat.

I think most of the shows run 30-45 minutes. I would check with the PIT though because the shows can be very different in terms of run time. As for a 15 year old, I guess it depends on your situation. I would take my 15-17... More
