Jerry Seinfeld will appear on Rap Album

Former long-time house emcee at the Comic Strip Live! (wonder what he has been up to since?) Jerry Seinfeld is doing something a little out of the norm and will be appearing on the new album from Philadelphia based rapper WALE.

Wale years ago made noise by releasing a mix tape which featured samples from Jerry’s seminal hit sitcom, the eponymously named “Seinfeld.” He is clearly a fan of NBC’s mid-90’s Thursday night programming (fingers crossed for a “Frasier” EP).

Here is a clip of Jerry explaining how he got involved.

Chris Rock Meets Eddie Murphy (animated)

If you are a fan of the history of comedy and The Comic Strip especially, you have probably heard the story of that magical night that Eddie Murphy walked into The Comic Strip, met Chris Rock and history was made. But outside of the 100 or so who were in the club that night, you were never able to witness it firsthand.

Thanks to some wonderful animationg by the team at TWIRI Sports and narration by the man himself Chris Rock, we can all now watch the historical comedy event transpire.

Larry Miller Recovering Well

As many of you know, longtime friend of the Comic Strip Live! Larry Miller suffered a life-threatening head injury back in April. For the past 9 months, Larry has gone through a harrowing process that now we are happy to report it appears he is pulling out of. News reports came out today that the 58-year old comedian and actor is expected to make a full recovery.

“He was hovering between life and death,” Michael Hansen, the Miller’s spokesman, told People Magazine. “It’s a miracle he woke up. … He’s lucky to be alive.”

Miller entered a coma and was placed on life support at UCLA Medical Center for one month following the accident which caused the injury.

Miller, who while in the hospital has had to work on brain connectivity issues, is expected to make a full recovery and plans to resume his podcast series This Week With Larry Miller” on Jan. 9.

“I’m very thankful to have recovered from a traumatic brain injury so quickly,” Miller told People.

Congratulations Larry! You are a wonderful spirit. Best wishes on a healthy and speedy recovery.
