We hope to host another one of these nights and when we do, readers of Eighty Second & 2nd will be the first to know!
Thanks again to John Mulaney, Mike O’Brien, Colin Jost, Jay Pharaoh, Bryan Tucker, Vanessa Bayer and everyone else who dropped by the club this last Sunday!

Most comedy clubs in New York treat Sunday as an “off-night” and use their venue to bring lesser talent and treat their crowds to sub-standard quality shows.
BUT NOT THE COMIC STRIP!
Tonight at the Comic Strip Live!, we are delivering you a knock-out line-up, including the stand-up talents of the great Kevin Brennan!
Brennan is a long-time New York favorite who has had his own HBO “One Night Stand” special, appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”, “Last Call with Carson Daly”, written for Saturday Night Live and more.
To find out when you can see Kevin, be sure to keep an eye on our schedule.
Long-time Comic Strip Live! favorite Jim Breuer’s new one-hour special “Let’s Clear The Air” debuts this coming Saturday night on Comedy Central at 11:00pm.
A house-hold name since the mid-90′s Breuer’s credits include serving as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, a featured supporting role in the cult classic Half-Baked and numerous other TV and film appearances. Breuer currently hosts a weekly radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio’s “Raw Dog” station called “Breuer Unleashed” and in 2004 was named one of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians of all-time.
