Enjoyable Tribute to Legenday Comedy Club
21 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I moved to NY from Philadelphia, this is one of the places I always wanted to visit. I was lucky enough to get there many times over a number of years and saw wonderful comics before they became nationally known. This is a tribute to the now demolished club on W 44th and 9th Avenue and its Melrose Avenue place in LA, with wonderful anecdotes from Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Richard Lewis, Judd Apatow, Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman, Ray Romano, Jimmy Fallon and 4 of the Wayans brothers; clips include brief appearances by Andy Kaufman, Richard Pryor, Lily Tomlin, Jerry Seinfeld and others; and briefly glimpsed photos of people like Steve Landesburg, Mike Kane, Mark Schiff, Steve Middleman, Dom Irrera. No mention of Richard Jeni, Carol Leifer, Elayne Boosler, John Mendoza or Ron Darien or other stalwarts of the day.
