Popular Meatpacking District Comedy Club Closes
By Ben Fractenberg
MEATPACKING DISTRICT — A popular Meatpacking District comedy club may have told its final joke.
The club's website has the rest of its performances this month listed as canceled.
The comedy venue, on 14th Street near Ninth Avenue, was reportedly having financial issues, with several comics saying they did not receive payment for their gigs.
The club is now auctioning off all its fixtures and equipment, according to Michael Amodeo & Co. Inc. Auctioneer’s website.
Among the items you could pick up are panini grills, a 1,000 pound ice machine and a 10-foot leather bar.
