Looking Back at the Year 2011, part 10!

It’s almost all over!  2011!!!  This has been the year to end all years (literally, if the Mayans end up being correct)!

This year was huge for a variety of reasons, but perhaps the biggest was that the club itself, the legendary Comic Strip Live!, celebrated it’s 35th Anniversary in the funny business.

On June 5th, the club opened its doors (as it always has seven nights a week) to alum, past and present to come back and take a look at the venue that has been home to hundreds of the best comedians in the world for 35 years now.
