Can it get any better than THIS?!?!?
AL DUCHARME! TONIGHT! HE’S FUNNY!
We’re watching the Golden Globes out in the lobby tonight. And in honor of the awards, we asked the comics who their favorites are this year.
Q: Who are you rooting for to win a Golden Globe this year?
Tom Van Horn
The Hurt Locker (Drama) and The Hangover (Comedy)
Avatar, and any other movie that makes people nauseous.
Dexter– not Michael C. Hall but Dexter himself.
The Golden Globes deserve their own Golden Globe.
Modern Family or Glee
The Larry Sanders Show, always
Gabourey Sidibe, for Precious
Thanks for checking out Eighty-Second & 2nd this week. We hope you’ll stop by the World Famous Comic Strip Live sometime soon!
In an attempt to learn more about the comics that grace the stage here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live, I ask a Question of the Night each Sunday. Tonight, the question focused on the dreams each comic had before living the dream of a professional comedian.
Q; When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A Costumed Superhero, like his favorite caped crusader Batman
A Filmmaker, especially after seeing The Rock
Always a Comedian
A Clown and then a Writer
A Basketball Player
A Baseball Player– He always wanted to play for the Mets, and now, he’d probably make the team.
Check back each week for a new Question of the Night. And, if there are any questons that you’d like to have answered, leave them in the comments below!
A lot of great comedy talent graced the Comic Strip Live this last week. A lot of our old friends came through to do sets and spend time in the lobby of the club that they all call “home”, the Comic Strip. Here is this weeks installment of Lobby Life.
A meeting of the minds occurred by our bar this last Wednesday when Ryan Reiss, Al Ducharme, Marina Franklin, Andy Hendrickson and Mike p. Burton got together.
Four of Thursday’s acts, Ted Alexandro, Judah Friedlander, J.J. Ramirez and Steve White converse about life in comedy. And baseball.
Veteran comedy writer D.F. Sweedler reflects on what makes a good comic alongside Stan Stankos, Joe Machi, Andy Hendrickson and Mike p. Burton.
A more subdued lobby allowed Judah Friedlander and Mike p. Burton to catch up over dinner with D.F. Sweedler and Matt Jenkins futhur discussed baseball.
Check back next Monday for another installment of Lobby Life!
