About 5th Borough Comedy Showcase: Staten Island is the forgotten borough of New York City. The roads are chewed up, streets don’t getplowed and are rarely mentioned when discussing the best Pizza in the city (even though we undoubtedly have the best). The Island’s reputation ofbeing the forgotten borough often extended to its comedy scene. NYC is the mecca for comedy but if you go to its 5th borough you can’t even finda comedy club let alone a comedy scene. That’s where we came in. In 2016we came together with the goal to get something going on Staten Island. And in a short time we have more than doubled the amount of working comicsfrom the area as well as filled local shows with consistently packed crowds. Greg and Rob have performed from the New York Comedy Festival to the Devil’s Cup Festival. Most recently they have headlined at Brooklyn House ofComedy. We have extended our reaches to the road. Producing private parties, bar shows, and club shows all around the North East. We are a localbusiness with global aspirations.
