I know that one is not allowed to listen to live music during the 3 weeks.

My question is if Standup comedy is not allowed as well?

The music restriction for Ashk'nazim (whatever it is) is on the three weeks, AFAIK, not only the nine days. But CYLOR of course for a ruling. –  msh210 Jul 8 '12 at 19:17

@msh210, true, but the question can still apply to schachna's case. Perhaps the 3 weeks are limited to specific restrictions based on custom. Whereas during the 9 days there is a general idea of mema'atin b'simcha. –  YDK Jul 8 '12 at 20:05

+1. I suspect that the OP only emphasized the live part, since that's the less controversial point. Ironic, that. –  HodofHod Jul 8 '12 at 20:14

Is there some reason משנכנס אב ממעטין בשמחה is not the correct answer to this question? –  Double AA Jul 8 '12 at 20:49

@DoubleAA Because the first two weeks of Bein HaMetzarim are Tamuz. –  b a Jul 8 '12 at 22:46
