This last week, many members of the Comic Strip Live! fraternity were featured in a New York Times article which covered the ever-increasing presence of stand up comedians finding themselves living in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, New York. The article touched on the advantages for a comedian to live in Queens, the sense of community felt by being in a neighborhood chock full of comics and easily available access to the city and airports that comes with living in the traditionally Greek area.
Interviews with Comic Strip comedians Ted Alexandro, Tim Young, Dan Allen, Andy Hendrickson and Moody McCarthy were included and on the front page of the article, a great picture is features Alexandro, Young, Allen, Hendrickson, McCarthy, Dustin Chaffin, Jon Fisch, Ray Devito and many, many more.
