Is there anyone better?
Earlier today, Comic Strip Live! favorite Andy Pitz just posted a clip from his jaw-dropping performance at the Comic Strip Christmas party doing his unbelievably perfect impression of Rodney Dangerfield.
A lot of comedians “do” Rodney, but Andy actually does RODNEY. Not an exaggeration of Rodney, or a caricature of him, but Andy sounds like Rodney actually sounded. No one does it as well as he does. Truly a one-of-a-kind talent.
Check out the clip, shot live on stage at our club.
And compare it with some classic Rodney footage.
Andy also recorded some bonus tracks of him doing Rodney jokes on his critically acclaimed sophomore album More Mr. Nice Guy.
To find out when you can see Andy Pitz live on stage at our club, keep an eye on the schedule page.

Yesterday was the Comic Strip Live’s annual Christmas party! To document the even, we here at Eighty-Second and 2nd dispatched comedians Adam Cozens and Joe Machi with a digital camera and had them capture the fun at last night’s annual send-off. They ended up taking many pictures of themselves. Here are a few choice shots!
