And performing stand-up comedy towards the end of the show will be long-time friend of the Comic Strip Live! and recurring character on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, Todd Barry!

News broke this week that Comic Strip Live alum (and recent drop-in) Artie Lange is debating throwing his name into the hat to fill the vacant seat of mayor for the city of Hoboken, New Jersey!
Not yet officially supported by the best-selling author, the campaigns website (www.mayorartie.com) wants to remind all readers that should enough write-in votes be counted, Artie Lange, beloved comedian, movie star and radio personality WILL become the mayor of Hoboken, a town which Lange has called home since 2001.
Punchline Magazine, a friend of the Comic Strip, quoted Artie on the air this week who when asked by Howard Stern what he would do should he gain the mayor-ship said: “I would legalize all drugs and tax the sh*t out of them. The money generated would go to city workers. Police would get $200,000 a year and fireman would start at $150,000”
Well, I can think of a few departments that are going to get behind the big guy.
Best of luck Artie!
About last night…
AMAZING show! Over 170 comedy fans turned out for what was much more than any seemingly ordinary mid-week comedy show! In addition to hilarious sets by Brian Scott McFadden, Ted Alexandro, Colin Kane, Joe Bolster, Al Ducharme and more, one of the evening many highlights was a special appearance by long-time friend of the Comic Strip Live!, the Roast Master General: Jeffrey Ross!

The now L.A.-based comic and Dancing with the Stars veteran was at the club to practice some of his witty zingers for the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers. And oh man…he sure had some gems. Looking forward to watching!
