Comic Strip Live invades Aspen!


At this years Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival, many comedians who call the Comic Strip Live! home be in attendance. But two of the performers poised to make the most impact are club favorites Brian Scott McFadden and Jermaine Fowler.

Both McFadden and Fowler received invitations to attend the festival located in scenic Aspen, Colorado and will be performing in a wide range of shows throughout the four day festival.  Jermaine Fowler will be hosting one of the nationally star-studded evening programs as well as performing a set at neighboring Steebs Comedy Club.  Fowler already has been awarded one of the festival’s “Silver Nails” recognizing achievement in America’s best emerging underground comedy talent.


McFadden will perform throughout the festival as a feature attraction and will most definitely be garnering attention after his recent breakout year which has already included appearances on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman and the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

In addition, club owner Robert Wachs will be on hand to present during a panel discussion on what it takes to make it from the comedy stage to the big screen. This topic is of constant discussion amongst those in the comedy community and Wachs expertise on the matter will certainly cause this event to be one of the big attractions of the festival.

And just when you didn’t think there could be any more, this years Rooftop Comedy Festival will also be the home of the debut of a new trailer for the documentary chronicling the history of the Comic Strip: Eat, Drink, Laugh.

Other notes of interest: club favorite Marina Franklin has been nominated for the festival’s Golden Shingle, which recognizes the most outstanding rising stand up comedy star.

The festival takes place June 9-13th in beautiful Aspen, Colorado.

Special Wednesday night guest: JEFFREY ROSS

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!


Jeffrey Ross, live on stage at the Comic Strip Live!, July 22nd, 2009

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!

The Comic Strip Live! has long been a second home for it’s alumni and has gained recognition for being a great place to catch an unexpected performer, like Jeff, live and in person. In the last year, the club has had unannounced performances by: Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, George Wallace, Caroline Rhea, Bill Burr, Jim Norton, Tony Rock, Greg Giraldo, Artie Lange, Mike Birbiglia & more. No night of the week gets you better odds of seeing your favorite comedian up close.
