Question of the Night (8/23/09)

In an attempt to learn more about the comics that grace the stage here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live, I ask a Question of the Night each Sunday.  Tonight, the question focused on the dreams each comic had before living the dream of a professional comedian.

Q; When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A:

Host, Bill McCarty

A Costumed Superhero, like his favorite caped crusader Batman

Jermaine Fowler

A Filmmaker, especially after seeing The Rock

Buddy Bolton

Always a Comedian

Mike Vecchione

A Writer/Businessman/Lawyer

Marina Franklin

A Clown and then a Writer

Al Ducharme

An Actor

Colin Kane

A DJ

Dustin Ybarra

An Actor

Jon Fisch

A Basketball Player

Don Jamieson

A Baseball Player– He always wanted to play for the Mets, and now, he’d probably make the team.

Check back each week for a new Question of the Night.  And, if there are any questons that you’d like to have answered, leave them in the comments below!

Special Wednesday night guest: JEFFREY ROSS

About last night…

AMAZING show! Over 170 comedy fans turned out for what was much more than any seemingly ordinary mid-week comedy show! In addition to hilarious sets by Brian Scott McFadden, Ted Alexandro, Colin Kane, Joe Bolster, Al Ducharme and more, one of the evening many highlights was a special appearance by long-time friend of the Comic Strip Live!, the Roast Master General: Jeffrey Ross!

Jeffrey Ross, live on stage at the Comic Strip Live!, July 22nd, 2009

The now L.A.-based comic and Dancing with the Stars veteran was at the club to practice some of his witty zingers for the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers. And oh man…he sure had some gems. Looking forward to watching!

The Comic Strip Live! has long been a second home for it’s alumni and has gained recognition for being a great place to catch an unexpected performer, like Jeff, live and in person. In the last year, the club has had unannounced performances by: Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, George Wallace, Caroline Rhea, Bill Burr, Jim Norton, Tony Rock, Greg Giraldo, Artie Lange, Mike Birbiglia & more. No night of the week gets you better odds of seeing your favorite comedian up close.

To try and guess when your comedy idol will pop in, check out the clubs calendar!
