Dangerfield's is a comedy club located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City, United States, and named after comedian Rodney Dangerfield. The club was founded by Rodney Dangerfield and long-time friend Anthony Bevacqua, who still runs and operates the club today.

Only headliners perform, with no amateur or open mic nights. Performers have included George Carlin, Jay Leno, Tim Allen, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Jim Carrey, Andrew Dice Clay, Dom Irrera, Roseanne Barr, Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison, Robert Schimmel and Jeff Foxworthy.
The club was home to HBO comedy specials Rodney Dangerfield put on to showcase young comedians.
