Venues like the Comedy Club, Improv and Laugh Factory specialize in stand-up comedy, meaning that the comedian is performing before a live audience. One truly has to be on his or toes for this task. Immediately, the audience can love you or hate you. A life-saving skill is the comedian’s ability to interact with and read the audience in real time.
Improv started even before Comedy Club, opening its first doors in the mid-1960s. After a rocky start, Improv became the live venue of choice for just about every comedian including such household names as: Lily Tomlin, Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal, Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Andy Kaufman, and the list goes on and on. Sharing the stage at Improv with the Jerry Seinfeld, Sara Silverman, Jeff Ross and other big names is one of New York’s exciting comedic talents, Elene Eustache who loves to make people laugh.
Comedy hit television too, with many of the live, stand-up comedy venues taping and airing for a television audience. Among the new crop of TV comedy shows is “The Ring Masters” which stars Elene Eustache. Eustache is also the creator, writer and executive producer of the show. Performing along side her are many of today’s hot comedians.
