About

Chris Mazzilli & Michael Reisman
Gotham Comedy Club
MAY
1996
 
A FRESH LOOK TO THE COMEDY SCENE
 
Native New Yorkers Chris Mazzilli and Michael Reisman opened Gotham Comedy Club in May 1996. Mazzilli, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, was roundly praised at that time for his top to bottom design of the original 3,300 square foot space. "It's been ten years since a club of this magnitude opened in Manhattan," said Mazzilli at the time. We felt that it was time for changes in the way comedy clubs have been perceived: all comedy and no ambiance.

Over the past decade, Mazzilli has proven himself to be a leader in the industry, bringing comics such as Dave Chapelle, Lewis Black and Colin Quinn (to name a few) to his stage. Gotham Comedy Club has become the backdrop for many TV shows and films such as Jerry Seinfeld's 2002 Miramax film "Comedian" and Larry David's pilot of "Curb Your Enthusiasm".

A NEW ERA OF COMEDY ENTERTAINMENT
 
Gotham Comedy Club opened it's new 10,000 square foot flagship location providing New York with live performances from today's elite comedians, and since its inception has appealed to the city's distinguished tastes. Located on 23rd St., in a 1929 building next door to the historic Chelsea Hotel, the new Gotham Comedy Club draws upon the charm and ambiance of the 1920s to capture the spirit of an upscale theater environment. Inspired by the famous nightclubs of that era, Mazzilli used the period's Art Deco movement as his starting point in the design of the $2.5 million space. The interior showroom walls are painted in a warm red tone while the hallway walls are the signature Gotham Yellow. Patrons feel as though they have been carried back in time as they enter the club, reminiscent as it is of the golden era of live theater entertainment. The entry walls also feature famed shutterbug Dan Dion's photographs of some of the comedy world's most recognizable faces.
