What does the sliding scale mean? We want to keep the show accessible to people who want to experience it, so a limited amount of tickets are available at $5.


Can I get tickets at the door? Most likely, but we can’t guarantee they will be available. Reserve early to make sure you get a seat.


Is there a food or drink minimum? Nope. There is not a purchase minimum for this show, but note that the full drink and food menu is available (and super tasty!).


So the Capish?! Club: Misfit Comedy Space is located inside an Italian Restaurant?! Yes! We love comedy…and food! It’s like going to your loud, Italian-American friends house where everyone is friendly, charmingly funny… and will try to feed you.


I love Ha! or Nah!: A Joke Lab! , so can I bring it to my organization/town, etc.? Sure! Email inthemidstprod@gmail.com and we’ll make it happen.


Can I reserve a seat? All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that doors are open at 7:30pm for the pre-show mingle. VIP tickets come with the optiont to choose your seat.


Can I be one of the “first time comedians? Sure. Email inthemidstprod@gmail.com and we’ll set you up.


Can I come alone? Yes! Here’s what a recnet audience member said about that: “Definitely a good atmosphere for a solo person, everyone was very welcoming and friendly but also not overwhelming.”


What kind of comedy is presented? Mostly standup, as well as a character act or two. We include a diverse array of comedians expeirmenting with different ways to present standup. Audiences have loved this aspect of the show. Audience members have described it as:

“Fun. Spontaneous.”
“Unhinged….in the best way!”
“Quirky and alive!”

Will comedians make fun of me? This room is positive-vibes only! As one audience members said point blank: “You won’t be a target at this show.”


Is this one of those Manhattan shows that are full of tourists? Nope! Our audience includes a diverse cross-section of New Yorkers with a few neighborhood folks mixed in. (But if you’re a tourist, you’re welcome to join us! We’ll give you an authentic New York experience you will not forget!)
