In The Tank with Jon Fisch and William Stephenson!

We’ve got two heapin’ helpings of podcast on our hands!  This week, Jon Fisch, Dan Allen and special guest co-host Moody McCarthy sit down to interview Comic Strip favorite, the great William Stephenson!

William shares his stories from his days working around the city (in every sense of the word) and dives into everything Comic Strip, from making an informational video regarding rules of “the light,” to our famous 50 hour stand up marathon show he hosted solo, to once actually getting banned from the club!

William is a staple here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live! and has been seen on HBO’s The Chris Rock Show, Def Comedy Jam, the film Pootietang, and most recently was a featured performer on FX’s new hit sitcom Louie.

Check it out!

Sunday Night at the Strip: Lenny Marcus!


You’ve seen him on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and recently heard him on the very popular In The Tank podcast, tonight at the Comic Strip Live!, LENNY MARCUS!

A long-time club favorite, Lenny is one of the hardest working men in the New York comedy scene. A master of word economy, Lenny is known for making audiences erupt with his observations of what it means to be a skinny, spectacle-adorned man in today’s dating scene.

Be sure to come up to the Comic Strip tonight to see one of the funniest guys around, Lenny Marcus.

To find out when you can plan an evening to see Lenny, be sure to keep a watchful eye on our calender.

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.
