Jerry Seinfeld will appear on Rap Album

Former long-time house emcee at the Comic Strip Live! (wonder what he has been up to since?) Jerry Seinfeld is doing something a little out of the norm and will be appearing on the new album from Philadelphia based rapper WALE.

Wale years ago made noise by releasing a mix tape which featured samples from Jerry’s seminal hit sitcom, the eponymously named “Seinfeld.” He is clearly a fan of NBC’s mid-90’s Thursday night programming (fingers crossed for a “Frasier” EP).

Here is a clip of Jerry explaining how he got involved.

Ross Bennett Talks About Riding In A Car with Jerry Seinfeld!


As I hope you have already seen,  a little over a month ago, the original host at the Comic Strip Live! (amongst other claims to fame) Jerry Seinfeld launched his latest show about nothing: Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The show has become a viral hit with episodes featuring Ricky Gervais, Brian Regan and his Seinfeld co-creator Larry David.

But there is always MORE to the story…

Today close friend of the Comic Strip Live!, Ross Bennett released his new video “A Comedian in His Car Talking About the Two Times He Was in a Car with Jerry Seinfeld.”

The video is hilarious and is a must watch.

To find out when you can next see Ross Bennett live, keep an eye on our schedule!

Joe Bolster Tonight!


When the Comic Strip Live! opened in 1976, no one knew who or what our young crop of talented comics would develop into. Sure, we had Billy Crystal and Rodney Dangerfield hanging around and in time we would groom and provide the space for the likes of Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis C.K., Adam Sandler and countless more to grow. But all of those early days comics helped the club become what it is today.

Perhaps no comic personifies that era better than the great Joe Bolster. Starting at the Strip in one of our earliest eras, Bolster has since gone on to amazing success, appearing on “The Tonight Show,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” starred in his own HBO “One Night Stand” special, was the winner of Showtime’s “New York Laff Off” competition and served as a writer for “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Talk Soup,” The Oscars and more.

A seasoned joke-craftsman who in 2011 released his most recent comedy CD “You Didn’t Ask, But Here’s What I’m Thinking…” Bolster performs nightly to sold-out thousand seat theater venues as the requested opening act for Brian Regan.

Joe will be performing on our 8:30 who tonight. Tickets are still available. You don’t want to miss your opportunity to see one of the best in the business, Joe Bolster, live. Order your tickets online now!
