Christian Finnegan to co-star in TBS’ Are We There Yet?


For those out there looking to find the perfect fill for that LOST-shaped void in your life, TBS’s new show Are We There Yet? might be the answer.

From Executive Producer Ice Cube, the new series is a spin-off of sorts from the successful 2005 family comedy motion picture of the same name. One of the stars of the new program is Comic Strip Live! favorite Christian Finnegan.


A long time friend of the club, Finnegan is perhaps best known for his appearances on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, as “Chad” in “The Mad Real World” sketch on Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show and as a talking head like no other on VH1’s Best Week Ever.  He has also appeared on CBS’ The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, NBC’s Today Show and in 2009 unveiled his one hour special Au Contraire!, which was released through Warner Bros. Records.

An audience favorite, Christian is a regular the Strip. To find out when you can catch him next, keep an eye on our schedule.

Question of the Night 05.16.10

In honor of my absolute favorite season of the year, SWEEPS, tonight’s question is all about closure and cliff hangers.

Q: What finale are you most looking forward to this Spring?


Vic Henley


Pat Dixon

The Simpsons

Jermaine Fowler

SNL (even though he didn’t know it was last night…)

Bernadette Pauley

Real Housewives of New York (but it would be Dexter or something else less embarrassing during non-network Sweeps.  Promise.)

Lenny Marcus


Buddy Bolton

Whale Wars

Warren Holstein

LOST (but he hopes it doesn’t jump the shark in the finale like Battlestar Galactica. And then he said, “I’m a nerd.”)

Christian Finnegan


Teddy Smith

Not a TV watcher, (against my best advice)

Ryan Reiss

Knotts Landing

Best of luck to you and your stories as the networks wrap up for summer vacation. In the meantime, come into the Club for some top-notch entertainment.

In The Tank with Jon Fisch and Christian Finnegan!

It’s a two-parter with guest Christian Finnegan.  I waited to post them together because the new season of LOST has reminded how much I hate cliffhangers.

Christian is a staple on Comedy Central, VH1, and at the World Famous Comic Strip Live.  You should check out his recent DVD, Au Contraire, and our schedule to find out the next time he’ll be on stage at the Comic Strip.
