Native New Yorkers Chris Mazzilli and Michael Reisman opened the original Gotham Comedy Club in May 1996 at a 3,300-square-foot (310 m2) space at 34 West 22nd Street (now occupied by The Metropolitan Room).[1]

In May 2006 the Club moved two blocks northwest to a 1929 structure adjacent to the Hotel Chelsea. The new 10,000-square-foot (930 m2) venue has an Art Deco design with walls painted in red tones and hallways painted "Gotham Yellow."[2] The entry walls feature photographer Dan Dion photographs[3] of Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld, Lewis Black, and Chris Rock.
