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?

A:

Vic Henley

Glee

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

Chuck

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

Treme

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.

Question of the Night: 01/24/010

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?

A:

Barry Weintraub

Telemarketing– it lasted about 2 days.

Kyle Grooms

Burger King, but it wasn’t that bad.

Pat Dixon

Stand-up Comedy– no joke!

Kevin Brennan

A busboy in Los Angeles (at a Rain Man age time in life that is way past the appropriate age for busboys).

Brian McFadden

It’s a tie between the airplane parts factory and the marketing for a basement waterproofing company.

Mike Vecchione

It would be the Car Wash except for the year he spent teaching kids with emotional problems in a wealthy Philadelphia suburb.

Warren Holstein

Orange Julius

Lenny Marcus

Tech department for EDS on Wall St: the longest year of his life.

Jon Fisch

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.

Comic Strip Christmas Party, 2009!

Happy Holidays!

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!
