Funny man Andy Borowitz and his wife bought a classic 7 co-op at the Clebourne on the Upper West Side for $2.6 million, Curbed reported. The listing price for the property was $2.7 million.

Kathleen Moosher at Brown Harris Stevens had the listing for the seven-room home, which includes three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Located on the southeast corner of the building, the living room has Central Park views, according to the listing. The kitchen has glass-paneled cabinetry, a Viking stove and a Bosch dishwasher.

Borowitz, a comedian, is known for creating “The Borowitz Report,” a news satire column, which the New Yorker magazine acquired this past summer. [Curbed] — Zachary Kussin
