If comedy has a Dorothy Parker, it’s Caroline Hirsch. The nightclub that bears her name on Broadway at the north end of Times Square is her salon, and for more than 30 years now, Carolines has been hosting the funniest and most famous stand-up comedians. From Jerry Seinfeld to Dave Chappelle to Louis Ck and Tracy Morgan, Carolines has been more than a prime showcase for the most hilarious people alive — it’s a room every comic has to conquer in order make his or her bones in the business.
Hirsch will be the first to admit that she herself isn’t funny. »

The Wednesday (Oct. 16) episode, "Wonderland Story," opens with a collection of characters bidding farewell to Munch at a roast in his honor. All NYPD detectives have to retire by their 63rd birthday. (Belzer, who has played Munch in a record 10 different shows over 20 years, is 69.)
Though the detectives always wear jackets and shirts with collars and ties, they are spiffier in this episode as they gather to roast their friend. Munch is the spiffiest of all, entering in a white dinner jacket and black bow tie. He looks as if he's in Vegas, not Brooklyn, where the scene was shot.
"I have to admit I did underestimate you at first," Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) says. "And I have to admit Detective Munch is not just a brilliant detective but a very, »

David Steinberg may not be a household name, but it is a name that means a great deal to anyone in the world of comedy.

Chicago — Comedy fans know the names – John Belushi, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Joan Rivers – but before those famous faces graced Hollywood movies or the "Saturday Night Live" stage they were discovered by Bernie Sahlins, co-founder of The Second City.
Alumni of the Chicago comedy club spent Monday remembering Sahlins, who died Sunday at age 90, as an innovator who along with business partners Howard Alk and Paul Sills opened the theater in December 1959. It quickly gained national attention and helped establish Chicago as a vibrant comedy town.
"Bernie was absolutely crucial in the formative years of Second City, as important a figure as it's ever had," said comedian and actor Robert Klein, who went on from Second City in 1965 to star on television series and in movies.
Second City caught on within months of opening, despite some early money problems and other issues. It became instrumental in the growth and development of improvisational and sketch comedy. »

David Steinberg sits down with comedian Louis C.K. in the season two premiere of Showtime’s Inside Comedy (airing Monday, February 11 at 11 p.m.). During their wide-ranging interview, C.K. talks fame and fans, and he issues a warning: Do not ask him to pose for a picture with you. He won’t do it. He would rather have a lovely conversation with you instead, provided you weren’t a total jerk about not getting the photo. And he kind of revels in the way it pisses some people off. Watch: »
