New Comic Strip Lottery: Tuesday, June 7th


Think you’re funny? For 35 years New York City’s Comic Strip Live! has prided itself in discovering and developing the freshest and most original new comedic talent. Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Larry Miller, Louis CK, Adam Sandler: now its your turn!

On Tuesday, June 7th, the world-renowned Lottery returns. At the Lottery, hopeful comedians will line-up around the block for the chance to draw a number which begins the process to getting an audition which, if passed, lets them have the chance to begin performing at the club. The Comic Strip is the only comedy club in the city (and perhaps the country) to offer this rare, one-of-a-kind opportunity. EVERYONE WHO COMES GETS AN AUDITION DATE!!!

The process is simple. Get in line, draw a number at random, once you have your number a club staff member will let you know what date (usually within the next 6 months) that number ties you too. It is then up to you to return on that night and make the crowd laugh. You might draw an early number and audition the next week on June 14th, or you may not go until December. Either way, you best be prepared to bring it!

If you have any questions, call 212-861-9386.

Jake Johannsen drops in at the Comic Strip!

Last night, one of the best comedians of our generation, the great Jake Johannsen dropped in at the Comic Strip Live!  He is in town to tape another appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show with David Letterman” and to make sure the set is fine tuned Jake, like so many other comics do, came by the Comic Strip to make sure everything was perfect before taking it to air.


A comic in the purest sense of the word, Jake is based on the west coast, so it was a rare treat for the packed Sunday night house at the Comic Strip to see Johannsen in person.

Be sure to catch Jake’s set this Friday night at 11:30 on CBS!
