Lobby life!

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.

Last night at the Strip: Charlie Murphy!

As this blog announced at the last minute yesterday, Chappelle’s Show star Charlie Murphy came by the Comic Strip Live! last night, much to the delight of the overwhelmingly large and excited mid-week crowd.

After coming up to the stage at a raucous ovation, Charlie dived into material ranging from his times overseas to adventures with friends to his thoughts on The Dog Whisperer. It was an incredibly entertaining set and as promised, Charlie did not disappoint. One fan who was lucky enough to grab a few minutes with Charlie after his set was moved to tears by Charlie’s kindness and personable attitude towards his fans.

We were thrilled to have Charlie come by last night and hope to see him again soon.
