Question of the Night: 01/24/010

We’re back with another Question of the Night, a Sunday tradition here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live blog.

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to become a comic, and it requires a lot of stamina to perform every night.  But at least it’s a job that each of our performers loves.  What’s really difficult is to go to the jobs that aren’t fun (and where you don’t get applause at the end).  So in honor of those gigs, tonight we’re asking:

Q: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?


Barry Weintraub

Telemarketing– it lasted about 2 days.

Kyle Grooms

Burger King, but it wasn’t that bad.

Pat Dixon

Stand-up Comedy– no joke!

Kevin Brennan

A busboy in Los Angeles (at a Rain Man age time in life that is way past the appropriate age for busboys).

Brian McFadden

It’s a tie between the airplane parts factory and the marketing for a basement waterproofing company.

Mike Vecchione

It would be the Car Wash except for the year he spent teaching kids with emotional problems in a wealthy Philadelphia suburb.

Warren Holstein

Orange Julius

Lenny Marcus

Tech department for EDS on Wall St: the longest year of his life.

Jon Fisch

Pouring beers at a ski lodge before he’d ever had one and subsequently getting a lot of complaints because of the excessive foam.

Thanks for stopping by Eighty-Second & 2nd.  Come back next week when we ask another Question of the Night.  Or better yet, come in to the Club and see these acts live on stage.

Comic Strip favorite: Gregg Rogell

On any given night at the Comic Strip Live, (like, say TONIGHT!) you might have the thrill of seeing one of the best comics working today in Gregg Rogell.


A long time club favorite, Rogell has been featured on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”, “The Tonight Show”, has had his own “Comedy Central Presents: Gregg Rogell” special and holds claim to a scene-stealing performance in the movie “The Aristocrats.”
