The institution that is the 92nd Street Y offers a lot to the average New Yorker, from apartments to swimming lessons to classical concerts.
At its satellite below Canal Street - 92YTribeca - add one more thing to the mix: comedy.
Since opening two years ago, the Hudson Street spot has been a cultural hub for concerts, screenings and exhibitions. A few times a month, it's also a premier stage on Thursdays for comedy, thanks to its Comedy Below Canal series.
Comedians from TV, film and stage have traveled downtown for the venue's themed nights, which have ranged from an evening of Boston natives to teen angst artifacts (think horribly embarrassing journals, letters and poems shared by their authors for your entertainment), to show featuring personalities like "The Daily Show's" Wyatt Cenac.
The schedule can be somewhat erratic, with shows most Thursdays during the month, so stay up-to-date here or at its Facebook page, and not miss a single joke.
