Photos from last night’s Sunset Comedy Cruise!

Last night a sold-out boat enjoyed another successful and exciting Comic Strip Live Sunset Comedy Cruise!

Laughs were plentiful and the memories made were priceless as a boat-load of comedy fans took in the spectacular views and hilarious stand-up comedy that only the Sunset Comedy Cruise can produce.

Relive some of the magic from last night!

Lobby life!

A lot of great comedy talent graced the Comic Strip Live this last week. A lot of our old friends came through to do sets and spend time in the lobby of the club that they all call “home”, the Comic Strip.  Here is this weeks installment of Lobby Life.

Photobucket

A meeting of the minds occurred by our bar this last Wednesday when Ryan Reiss, Al Ducharme, Marina Franklin, Andy Hendrickson and Mike p. Burton got together.

Photobucket

Four of Thursday’s acts, Ted Alexandro, Judah Friedlander, J.J. Ramirez and Steve White converse about life in comedy. And baseball.

Photobucket

Veteran comedy writer D.F. Sweedler reflects on what makes a good comic alongside Stan Stankos, Joe Machi, Andy Hendrickson and Mike p. Burton.

Photobucket

A more subdued lobby allowed Judah Friedlander and Mike p. Burton to catch up over dinner with D.F. Sweedler and Matt Jenkins futhur discussed baseball.

Check back next Monday for another installment of Lobby Life!

And to see the lobby (and the comics within it) live in person, check out our schedule.
