COMEDIANS YOU SHOULD KNOW (CYSK) is a stand-up comedy collective of some of the funniest up-and-coming stand-up comedians in the country. Since its inception in 2008, CYSK has produced a weekly stand-up comedy showcase in downtown Chicago that draws sold-out crowds and a loyal local following. The show has gained praise from fans and comedians alike for it's unwavering commitment to presenting only the very funniest local comedians and visiting guests. The Onion AV Club writes of CYSK, "the genuine level of talent is unrivaled in Chicago."
In 2015, CYSK branched out to the west coast, and now produces a weekly show at the Improv Comedy Club in West Hollywood as well. CYSK is very excited to bring the same scrappy, comedic vision and DIY-attitude to New York City, home of the best stand-up comedians in the world. In a dynamic comedy scene with so many different styles of comedy shows, CYSK is confident that the only gimmick required is presenting the very funniest standup comics available; the only theme to the show is that all of the performers are comedians you really should know.
CYSK NYC is produced by Chicago-bred/New York-based comedians Saurin Choksi, David Drake, Mike Lebovitz, and Jeff Steinbrunner.
