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?
SNL (even though he didn’t know it was last night…)
Real Housewives of New York (but it would be Dexter or something else less embarrassing during non-network Sweeps. Promise.)
LOST (but he hopes it doesn’t jump the shark in the finale like Battlestar Galactica. And then he said, “I’m a nerd.”)
Not a TV watcher, (against my best advice)
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.
We’re back with another Question of the Night, a Sunday tradition here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live blog.
It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to become a comic, and it requires a lot of stamina to perform every night. But at least it’s a job that each of our performers loves. What’s really difficult is to go to the jobs that aren’t fun (and where you don’t get applause at the end). So in honor of those gigs, tonight we’re asking:
Q: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Telemarketing– it lasted about 2 days.
Burger King, but it wasn’t that bad.
Stand-up Comedy– no joke!
A busboy in Los Angeles (at a Rain Man age time in life that is way past the appropriate age for busboys).
It’s a tie between the airplane parts factory and the marketing for a basement waterproofing company.
It would be the Car Wash except for the year he spent teaching kids with emotional problems in a wealthy Philadelphia suburb.
Tech department for EDS on Wall St: the longest year of his life.
Pouring beers at a ski lodge before he’d ever had one and subsequently getting a lot of complaints because of the excessive foam.
Thanks for stopping by Eighty-Second & 2nd. Come back next week when we ask another Question of the Night. Or better yet, come in to the Club and see these acts live on stage.
Tuesday night, the Comic Strip Live is proud to welcome club favorite Pat Dixon!

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!

Its been a few weeks since the last installment, but we here at Eighty Second & 2nd have snapped up a fresh crop of photos for our favorite Monday tradition: Lobby Life!
