Yesterday was the Comic Strip Live’s annual Christmas party! To document the even, we here at Eighty-Second and 2nd dispatched comedians Adam Cozens and Joe Machi with a digital camera and had them capture the fun at last night’s annual send-off. They ended up taking many pictures of themselves. Here are a few choice shots!

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!
