Stand-Up Comedy Experience

In the late 1980s/early 1990s, I participated in a workshop comedy group called The Stand-Up Comedy Experience, under the direction of the inestimable Steve Rosenfield. That workshop has grown and morphed and is now the American Comedy Institute. It was a hobby, that I briefly toyed with turning into something more, but, my creative talents lend themselves more to comedy writing, and to cooking, than to performing. Still, I had a hell of a lot of fun.

This clip also contains performances from two of my closest friends at the time, Maureen Morris and Eli Krupnik. Eli was the person who got me into the workshop in the first place. Sadly, he passed away in early 2014. The show was emceed by the inimitable (albeit slightly less campy than usual) Alan Sues, who also passed away, in 2011.
