In The Tank with Jon Fisch and William Stephenson!

We’ve got two heapin’ helpings of podcast on our hands!  This week, Jon Fisch, Dan Allen and special guest co-host Moody McCarthy sit down to interview Comic Strip favorite, the great William Stephenson!

William shares his stories from his days working around the city (in every sense of the word) and dives into everything Comic Strip, from making an informational video regarding rules of “the light,” to our famous 50 hour stand up marathon show he hosted solo, to once actually getting banned from the club!

William is a staple here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live! and has been seen on HBO’s The Chris Rock Show, Def Comedy Jam, the film Pootietang, and most recently was a featured performer on FX’s new hit sitcom Louie.

Check it out!

Part One | Part Two

Keep listening to and supporting great New York City stand up comedy! And as always keep your bookmarks locked here at Eighty-Second & 2nd!

Laughs were plentiful and the memories made were priceless as a boat-load of comedy fans took in the spectacular views and hilarious stand-up comedy that only the Sunset Comedy Cruise can produce.

Relive some of the magic from last night!

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.
