'When you are a kid starting out as a stand-up comic...you dream about the nine o'clock spot on Saturday night at the Comic Strip.' - Jerry Seinfeld

Once in a lifetime a venue comes along that changes show business dramatically, that fosters growth and camaraderie, experimentation and freedom. The Comic Strip is one of those places, and Make 'Em Laugh is an inside look at how it all happened, straight from the mouths of the stars who built their careers on its stage. Owner Richie Tienken and a wealth of comics open their hearts and souls to share their most intimate memories, the laughs and tears, the good times and the bad, in order to paint an all-encompassing, behind-the-scenes history of this iconic club. Interviews include famous comedians, such as:

  • Jerry Seinfeld
  • Gilbert Gottfried
  • Paul Reiser
  • Lisa Lampanelli
  • George Wallace
  • Billy Crystal
  • Jim Breuer
  • Susie Essman
  • Lewis Black
  • Ray Romano
  • And many more!

Relive the excitement as these comics explain how they came to belong to the Comic Strip family, and how they went on to enjoy huge careers, bringing laughter to millions of people all over the world. This book is a must for any comedian or comedy lover's library!
