AHH! I can’t believe 2011 is already on its way out! It was such a great year for all of our comedians! Let’s keep looking back at some of the moments that made this year so magical!

On Friday, February 11th, Comic Strip Live! favorite Ted Alexandro made his THIRD appearance on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman.

Each time Ted does a TV set, he continues to one-up himself. Can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve next!

The Queens of Comedy

This last week, many members of the Comic Strip Live! fraternity were featured in a New York Times article which covered the ever-increasing presence of stand up comedians  finding themselves living in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, New York. The article touched on the advantages for a comedian to live in Queens, the sense of community felt by being in a neighborhood chock full of comics and easily available access to the city and airports that comes with living in the traditionally Greek area.

Interviews with Comic Strip comedians Ted Alexandro, Tim Young, Dan Allen, Andy Hendrickson and Moody McCarthy were included and on the front page of the article, a great picture is features Alexandro, Young, Allen, Hendrickson, McCarthy, Dustin Chaffin, Jon Fisch, Ray Devito and many, many more.

To see the picture and read the online version of the article, click here.

If you want to check out any of the clubs Astoria-based comics, be sure to inspect the club calendar.

Thanks to Andy Hendrickson for the tip!
