Interviewed Stand Up Comedian Jeffrey Gurian at New York Comedy Club in the East Village

jeffrey-gurian



1. What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy?

Well, I tried getting a job as a waiter but there were none available so I went to Dental School and became a Cosmetic Dentist, and then later a Clinical Prof. at N.Y.U. in Oral Medicine and Oro-Facial Pain, while I was writing for big stars like Rodney Dangerfield, Joan Rivers, Jerry Lewis, Phil Hartman, George Wallace, Richard Belzer, and many Friars Club roasts.

2. How did you know you wanted to be a comedian?

My parents were typical Jewish parents from The Bronx, who at first refused to let me be a doctor. They said, “Don’t shame us that way!” I had to hide in my room to do my homework, and they would bang on the door and say “Come out. We know you’re studying in there. Stop it. You’ll be too successful!” I finally got them to give in. Actually, my grandfather owned a nightclub called “The Red Mill” and I was introduced to show biz at a very early age. My father was a big comedy fan and took me to see comedy movies when I was a kid, and at 12 years old I was already writing comedy for the amusement of my friends. read more

Interview Alex Carabaño at Broadway Comedy Club

Alex-Carabaño

1. What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy?
Man, I worked a lot of random jobs from late night shifts at The Home Depot to the shady cell phone hookups at RadioShack to graphic design photoshopping to packing boxes in a warehouse deep in Elizabeth, NJ. All were perfectly terrible places to prepare me for the emotional roller coaster that is stand up comedy. ? I actually still have a career, before I even started performing, my brother & I opened a Latin vegan restaurant almost 13 years ago in Brooklyn. We are working one of our restaurants at some point every single day. read more

NYC Comedy Blog Listing for the last week of February

New York City is the mecca of stand up comedy in America and every night you can see hilarious comedians at all these top venues. It’s hard to choose the best shows to see this week but here is a good lineup for this week.

Here is a list of 10 great NYC comedy shows that are lined up for performance at NYC clubs this last week of February:

1. Early Evening Stand Up Extravaganza Broadway Comedy Club
On February 24, 2019, starting at 7:00 pm, there will be an Early Evening Stand Up Extravaganza where a lineup full of top headliners will be presented. In their listing, the comedy club describes them as the best comedians in New York. Also in the lineup will be special guests who are drawn from different parts of the country. The list includes comedians who have appeared in a number of shows on HBO, The Tonight Show, The Daily Show, and Comedy Central, among others. Some of the comedians include Rob Cantrell. Rob has appeared on NBC, HBO, FX, as well as Comedy Central, among others. He emerged in the top ten finalists during the first season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, as well as performing on CBS’s The Late Show. His new stand up comedy can be streamed in different platforms; currently, it has been listened to more than 20,000 times per week on Pandora, Spotify, and iTunes. Apart from his sterling performances, Rob has also written on projects for Adult Swim, High Times, Comedy Central, Howard Stern, and more.
Christine Meehan-Berg. Christine is of the Food Network fame. She is a legend in standup comedy, an artist who has a good understanding of what the audience wants.
Harry Terjanian. Henry, winner of the Andy Kaufman award, will also be in the house as a special guest. A little background on who was Andy Kaufman can probably help give an idea of what to expect from a comedian who has won an award that celebrates him. Andy Kaufman was a veteran entertainer, a person who told jokes in an engaging way. He normally referred to himself as a “song and dance man.” His promise was to try and entertain the audience the best way he could. He performed on Saturday Night Live, which is where he actually started. Other shows where he has performed include Latka Gravas, Taxi, Late Night with David Letterman, and King Lawler, among other appearances. read more

Very Good Comedy Show is a grassroots touring project leaving audiences smiling across the country. Each entertaining performance is like TV late night live with standup, improv, video vignettes and a house band that always keeps the party going. Co-produced and hosted by NYC comedy club regulars Aric Grooms & Robert Punchur, this show has seen drop-ins including national headliners Louie CK & TJ Miller. The story of the show begins in late 2017 when Punchur, then a 25-year-old self-described “jaded standup burnout” was working a weekly shift as a bartender at Broadway Comedy Club on 53rd Street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen. Grooms’ energy at that time was the inverse- he was a family man in his 40s with fresh excitement to dive into the too-oft cynical medium. The individuals crossed paths at an open mic the younger comic habitually hosted. Aric’s hypersocial habit of fast-talking strangers into friends broke open stories of Robert’s recently discarded past as a bicoastal model, actor, and standup show producer- a combination of skills which allowed him to serve as the comedic face of KnowMe (a flash-in-the-pan video-editing software & social media platform that Punchur planned & hosted an 8-city national tour for a few months prior).

After a nasty end to his first romantic domestic partnership with an Australian actress & bikini model (a descriptor Punchur still slyly brags about) during that time, the once self-made entertainer decided to remove himself completely from the forefront of his industry. Aric’s background in ministry and youth pastorship helped him quickly recognize that Robert’s resulting depression was not from tiring of jokes, but rather the personal troubles and dirty politicking of favoritism that runs many venues who host them.

He proposed beginning an independent project where performers were respected, appreciated, paid, and most importantly- audiences were entertained. Thus- Very Good Comedy Show was born.

The earliest happenings took place at West End Lounge, a mostly musical bar venue located in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. To differentiate themselves from other shows, Robert & Aric brought on Jeff Manno and his House Band to open the night and play up each act with pop rock covers. This musical inclusion is a throwback to stand-ups traditional vaudeville origins when the art form emerged in the Catskills. It’s a signature staple of Very Good that has followed them over the past two years into cities across the country including Pittsburgh, Chicago, the co-producers’ small hometowns of Butler PA & Chillicothe OH, and a monthly occurrence at vacation destination The Lodge in Woodstock NY. read more
