This last Friday, Comic Strip Live! favorite Dustin Ybarra made his national television debut on the season premiere of Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.”
Ybarra, who has called the Comic Strip home ever since moving up to the big city from his native Texas, displayed great poise and confident as he delivered his 6-minute set to the same enthusiastic response he gets 7 nights a week at the Strip!
We are all very proud of our friend for having such a great set and we look forward to seeing more big things from him soon!

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?
Host, Bill McCarty
A Costumed Superhero, like his favorite caped crusader Batman
A Filmmaker, especially after seeing The Rock
Always a Comedian
A Clown and then a Writer
A Basketball Player
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!
