My sister and I had the good fortune to attend the filming of four episodes at the Vic Theater in Chicago, back in 1990. We saw Rick Overton, Norm MacDonald, Jeff Marder, and Alan Havey. Naturally, those are my favorites, but I think I've watched most of the episodes listed here.
Norm MacDonald went on to a successful run with Saturday Night Live, but I'm not sure what happened to Jeff Marder. I occasionally see Alan Havey on the occasional commercial, most recently, a Wendy's commercial.
I highly recommend the One Night Stand series to any and all fans of stand up comedy. HBO really does bring the funny.
