They say variety is the spice of life, and every single night in Chelsea, The Magnet Theater brings audiences that variety in the form of improv comedy. Join them as different comedy troupes flex their improv skills in varying genres and disciplines. In the past, audience members have enjoyed performances that range from “Friends” in the vein of “Game of Thrones,” and Shakespearean takes on the murder mystery genre. No matter what they bring to the stage, the comics at The Magnet are sure to have you marveling at the comedy they create in constraints. If you’ve been dreaming of your own moment in the spotlight, the theater offers free beginner classes in everything from improv to musical improv, sketch writing, and storytelling. See their full calendar of shows here.
Once you’ve finished your comedic sampling for the evening, make your way next door to OCabanon to partake in French fare and family heritage. Wine and cheese lovers rejoice — you’ve found your kindred spirit in the French owners here. We like the warm brie with black truffle to share. In French, a cabanon is a small place in the garden where you can cook, eat, nap, and enjoy each other’s company. The founders of OCabanon recreated this simplicity and hospitality on their little slice of 29th street, and you’ll find risottos and ratatouilles that warm your heart — a perfect way to end an evening of laughter and love.
