…and we’re back…
or, more correctly, I’m back from LA, where we filmed some great interviews for Eat, Drink, Laugh, the documentary about the Club we told you about earlier this year.
It’s been a great night here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live:
Chris Rock stopped by to work out his material for Letterman tomorrow night.
AND, the Late Night Crew set up camp and talked with us for this week’s Question of the Night.
Q: What’s the best part about hanging out in the lobby while you wait to go on stage?
Adam Cozens: “Even when there’s only a couple people left in the crowd, a good Lobby Life makes it worth our time to be here at the Comic Strip.”
Sam Morril: “It’s great to have people to run joke with and help get mentally prepared for the stage.”
Joe Machi: “It’s the fellowship and penis jokes.”
Matt Jenkins: “Networking with other comics.”
DF Sweedler: “I love when Chris Rock stops by right before my spot.”
Only one great shot to include in this weeks Lobby Life, but it is a DOOZY!
What does it have in it?
It has members of our fabulous and hilarious STAFF!
It has multiple comics featured on our famous Late Night Roster!
It has a guy that frequently hangs out in our lobby!
It has an Emmy & Peabody Award winning comedian!
And it has more!
And what else? They are all wearing hoodies!

A lot of great comedy talent graced the Comic Strip Live this last week. A lot of our old friends came through to do sets and spend time in the lobby of the club that they all call “home”, the Comic Strip. Here is this weeks installment of Lobby Life.
A meeting of the minds occurred by our bar this last Wednesday when Ryan Reiss, Al Ducharme, Marina Franklin, Andy Hendrickson and Mike p. Burton got together.
Four of Thursday’s acts, Ted Alexandro, Judah Friedlander, J.J. Ramirez and Steve White converse about life in comedy. And baseball.
Veteran comedy writer D.F. Sweedler reflects on what makes a good comic alongside Stan Stankos, Joe Machi, Andy Hendrickson and Mike p. Burton.
