IN THE BEGINNING

Comic Strip Live was born on a Monday night in May of 1975 by Richard Tienken, John McGowan and Robert Wachs. They found the original and current location the very next day.

Originally the Comic Strip featured comics, singers, magicians and novelty acts. Soon they realized that stand up comedy was the only way to go and the Comic Strip has been a showcase club ever since. The first big star was box office legend Eddie Murphy. The first time Eddie came into the club, he was only 18 and had a lot of swagger…almost too much! Saturday Night Live soon followed and the rest is show biz history. Eddie in turn discovered Chris Rock at The Comic Strip.

Like so many acts, television superstar Jerry Seinfeld worked for many years on the Comic Strip’s stage. Everybody called him “Doctor Comedy” because there wasn’t a bit he couldn’t fix.
