For the fans of podcasts, of secret shows, and of the back alleys of the internet, r/Standup is a live standup show starring the best comedians today's scene has to offer. This is where the outcasts become the cool kids and where unique is celebrated. r/Standup features the same comedians you'd see at a theater, but it's priced at just $10 so you can be a regular and never miss it. There's a pre-show bar mingle meetup for redditors, and most comics stay around after the show to hang. And every show features one awesome unannounced guest.
