When and where did you start performing comedy? What was your first time on stage like?

2008. The Laff House Comedy Club In Philadelphia Pa. I was 32 years old. I bombed, like a gentleman. Best wings in the city though.

Why did you pick NYC instead of Los Angeles or anywhere else?

I figured there would be more opportunities to get on stage, I couldn’t afford a plane ticket, and the pizza is way better.

How long did it take you to get paid work in comedy after you moved to NYC? read more

Rest in Peace WILLIAM STEPHENSON

Written by Joseph Santiago

Rest in Peace WILLIAM STEPHENSON

Comedian William Stephenson he has passed away.

He was only 62 years ago.

With sadness in our hearts, and shocking news is true: I was hanging out with him last month at the Comedy Cellar. He always had a big smile and always greeted me with warmness.

I  found out the details of his death from one of our former writers Bryan Murray on his Facebook profile. He wrote this.

“Just over three years ago I wrote a hand full of articles for Joseph Santiago. I was given the opportunity to interview comedians as a comedy fan. Will was there for the first time Jessica and I ever saw the live comedy in New York at the Comedy Cellar. read more

Interview with Comedian Monroe Martin at The New York Comedy Club

Monroe Martin
Written by Joseph Santiago Monroe Martin It was at the New York Comedy Cub that we met up with one of our favorite comedians Monroe Martin after one of his comedy shows in NYC, which is located in the Kips Bay section in Manhattan. It was a Friday night and the New York Comedy Club was completely sold out. There was this amazing energy filled in the room with people from around the world. 1. What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy? I had too many Jobs. I was a Peer Educator for Planned Parenthood. I worked at Spirit of Halloween, McDonald’s, Philadelphia Youth Network, Tower Perrin, City Year, A charter School/ summer camp, The Philadelphia Zoo, a Security Company, a telemarketer, and Dave and Buster’s. 2. How did you know you wanted to be a comedian? Honestly, I didn’t dream of being a comedian. I didn’t think it was something I could accomplish so why try, right? My friends were the first people that thought I was funny. They called me stupid all the time. Most people would take offense to that, but I didn’t. Calling someone stupid when they say something hilarious is the second highest comment. The highest is genius. I would find my self-writing down topics and points to bring up during the conversation. At the time I did know I was writing a set. Between making my friends laugh I would make some of my foster parents laugh. One of my foster moms and I would watch Coming To The Stage on BET. Which is a comedy competition.   One day we were watching the show, and she said: “I could see you doing something like that one day.” I blew it off. The comics on the show were so funny I could never be one of them. There was one specific comic I thought was hilarious. I won’t mention his name. Fast forward to the summer, I have graduated high school and I have no real plans of going to college. I just wanted to hang out and go with the flow of life. One morning my friend and I were sitting on his front porch cracking jokes, and a garbage truck goes by, and the guy I thought was super funny was on the back of the trash truck. I tried to get his attention, by yelling “yo man you’re funny as hell” he wanted to ignore me, but I kept until he acknowledged me. Looking back I was being extra, but it was worth it because that changed my perspective on comedians. I felt like I could actually be a comic. I started comedy two years after that. 3. If you weren’t doing comedy, what would you be doing? I would probably be fat as shit with a city job. 4. Where are some of your favorite places to perform? I like The Knitting Factory, Stress Factory, Comedy Connection in Rhode Island, Denver Funny Bone. 5. Who are some of your favorite up-and-comers in the comedy world? If you pay your bills off of comedy, I don’t consider you up and coming. If we are talking about comics that aren’t famous yet, then I have a long list, but here are some. I like Chloe Hilliard, Derek Gaines, Dave Temple, Ian Finance, etc. 6. What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten? Fail as much as possible.

7. When did you feel like you were a pro comedian? read more
