I appeared on "Comic Strip Live" in 1989 and 1990 when John Mulrooney was the host. At that time it was taped at Igby's in West Los Angeles. In 1991, they changed hosts and venues. Gary Kroger replaced John and they started filming it at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. Along with "An Evening at the Improv", it not only gave young comics a chance to be seen on television every week, but is now an archive of stand-up in America. These shows were for many, their first appearance on national TV. It was a lot of fun and really helped comics put together television length sets and material. Although The Laugh Factory remains, Igby's is now long gone and it sure would be nice to see the old place again if these shows were released on DVD.
