Sherri Shepherd Dropped By!

Think you work long days?

One of the hosts of ABC’s “The View,” longtime friend of the club Sherri Shepherd swung by the club to work out some material tonight! After getting up early this morning in order to be awake, alert and on the air by 10am, Sherri was burning the candle at both ends when she came by the Comic Strip Live! to do a  solid 20 minutes of stand up comedy.

Whether its on The View, 30 Rock or our stage, its always a pleasure to see the hilarious and engaging Sherri Shepherd. Thanks for coming by Sherri!

Larry Miller Recovering Well

As many of you know, longtime friend of the Comic Strip Live! Larry Miller suffered a life-threatening head injury back in April. For the past 9 months, Larry has gone through a harrowing process that now we are happy to report it appears he is pulling out of. News reports came out today that the 58-year old comedian and actor is expected to make a full recovery.

“He was hovering between life and death,” Michael Hansen, the Miller’s spokesman, told People Magazine. “It’s a miracle he woke up. … He’s lucky to be alive.”

Miller entered a coma and was placed on life support at UCLA Medical Center for one month following the accident which caused the injury.

Miller, who while in the hospital has had to work on brain connectivity issues, is expected to make a full recovery and plans to resume his podcast series This Week With Larry Miller” on Jan. 9.

“I’m very thankful to have recovered from a traumatic brain injury so quickly,” Miller told People.

Congratulations Larry! You are a wonderful spirit. Best wishes on a healthy and speedy recovery.
