The Queens of Comedy

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.

To see the picture and read the online version of the article, click here.

If you want to check out any of the clubs Astoria-based comics, be sure to inspect the club calendar.

Thanks to Andy Hendrickson for the tip!

Question of the Night (9/06/09)

This week’s Question of the Night takes a look into the impact a crowd can have on a comic.  It’s a great night here at The World Famous Comic Strip Live, and our stellar line-up let us in on a few of the reasons they like a particular spot over another.

Q: What is your favorite (or least favorite) night to perform?

A:

Jim Mendrinos, Host

Everybody is going to say Friday or Saturday, but I like the early part of the week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) to work out some new material.

Brian McFadden

I love St. Patrick’s Day because there’s no actual pressure to be funny when the crowd is so drunk.

Jermaine Fowler

Friday night, because everyone is excited for the start of the weekend

Tim Young

It used to be Mondays when there was no cover.  But now he just takes each new audience as he meets them.

Warren Holstein

Either Friday or Saturday night, always

Mike Vecchione

#1: Saturday, #2 Friday, #3 Sunday, #4 Thursday

Ryan Reiss

I know everyone says Friday or Saturday, but I like a solid Sunday night crowd.

Lenny Marcus

Either the 1st or 2nd show on a Saturday night.  Anyone who says anything else is kidding themselves, but not in the funny way.

Sherrod Small

Saturday and Thursday

Kyle Grooms

Saturday

Come back next Sunday night for another installment of Question of the Night.  If there’s a question you would like to have answered, leave it in the comment section below.  And click on each picture above to check out the comics on their own cyber-turf.
