...amongst a long list of many others polished their comedic talent here before becoming household names.

Comedy NYC is hard to define and easy to recognize. What is more crazy than being a comedian in New York City?

Perhaps the grave-yard shift at the local Quickie-Mart, Chain Drugstore or Fast Food Franchise where like in New York City Comedy Clubs you get to observe up close and personal the best and worst of human nature. Audiences and comedians can be brutal to each other, to paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi, "To be a comedian, Luke you must confront and then go beyond the dark side."

Being creative and/or funny is similar to winning the lottery, many are called but only a select few get chosen. The pursuit of comedy as a career requires vast amounts of effort, intestinal fortitude, high self-esteem or lack thereof and a huge amount of rejection. The challenge and struggle to retain your dignity, financial solvency and sanity are not mutually exclusive.
