Pier NYC, a new seasonal waterfront cafe, located on the West Promenade of Roosevelt Island, will be hosting Comedy on the Water August 16th at 8pm and it's free to attend with a 2 drink minimum. Stand Up NY, one of the city's oldest comedy clubs, has played host to some of the biggest names in comedy, such as Jerry Seinfeld and Jon Stewart. The venue has partnered with Pier NYC, a great spot for outdoor relaxation on the water to bring you this great event. The evening's comedians include Jonathon Randall, Mike Vecchione, Ryan Reiss, Brian McGuinness, and Kyle Grooms. Each performer has only fifteen minutes in which to make the audience roar with laughter, so be careful when eating.
