Are you looking for a new place to have a few laughs and good food too? The Comedy Works is opening up their new location in Albany, complete with a full-service restaurant and bar.
The new location will be called The Stand-Up Sit Down Eat & Drinkery and is located at 500 Northern Blvd. The grand opening for the new site will be on Friday, Sept 21 at 7:30 pm.
The Stand-Up Sit Down first comedy performances will be headlined by Ross Bennet, a veteran comic that has appeared on the Comedy Central channel.
The Stand-Up Sit Down will be the headquarters for The Comedy Works' offices and private functions that The Comedy Works will host. Owner Tom Nicchi Jr., is already looking in to expand to the Clifton Park and Glens Falls area. Nicchi plans on expanding his Saratoga Springs location also.
The Comedy Works has called the Best Western Hotel home for the past three years and the final shows will be performed this weekend. The Comedy Works will have their own standalone building for the first time since the 1980's, when it was located on Central Avenue.
Comedy shows will be on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, starting Sept 25.
