Liz Miele New York Comedy Club
Recently we had a chance to interview one of our favorite comedians Liz Miele at the New York Comedy Club, an amazing stand-up comedian as she shared his journey with us. Liz Miele New York Comedy Club 1. What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy? I started stand-up @ 16 so not much. I worked as a receptionist at my parents animal hospital for years. Was a waitress, a temp at a million places and my last day job I babysat part-time. 2. How did you know you wanted to be a comedian? Nothing else made me nearly as happy and it was the only thing I work hard on and cared about. I thought I was lazy before stand-up but I just didn’t care about anything as much. 3. If you weren’t doing comedy, what would you be doing? At this point, I now see what other skills and passions I have. I think marketing or management. I’m stupidly organized and I like creative problem-solving. Or be homeless.

4. Where are some of your favorite places to perform?

My favorite place ever was The Stand in Glasgow. I LOVE Top Secret Comedy Club in London. New York Comedy Club and The Comedy Cellar are my fav in NYC and love DC Improv in Washington, DC.

New York Comedian Aaron Berg performed 25 sets on September 12 — two more than his goal, and nearly twice the amount of the previous record. Back in 2003 Steve Byrne set the record at 13, as famously portrayed in the film 13 or Bust. Now Berg is set to release his own documentary on his voyage to the record book, all while paying homage to the New York City comedy scene.

The stunt took 11 hours — and involved Berg shuffling between clubs, navigating traffic to make it there on time, and oh ya — he was being followed by a documentary crew of more than a dozen. And did we mention he wasn’t working with material? Yep, Berg didn’t repeat a single joke the entire night — and successfully warmed up crowds from a handful, to over a hundred in less than 10 minute sets. read more
