This Week at Stand Up NY!


This was another great week for Stand Up NY. The shows featured killer lineups every night, highlighted by appearances from national headliners Godfrey, Paul Mercurio and Seaton Smith. This week came on the heels of international star Caroline Rhea’s handful of sold out performances at the club last weekend. We would also like to send our HUGE congratulations to one of our favorites and a regular at the club, Paul Virzi, who last weekend performed with Bill Burr at a sold out Madison Square Garden. Next week figures to be another riotous week of shows, with impending visits from great comics like Andrew Schulz (watch Benders!), Gary Vider and Yamaneika Saunders. Looking for some comedy on your way out? Here’s Gary on AGT!

If you want to be the first to know about last minute VIP additions, like Jay Pharoah last night, to the lineup, text 646 400 1983!

We give you the list of every candy shot and cocktail. The list is broken up into two parts, one with chocolate candy (like the Snickers Shot) and the rest with candy candy (like Bubble Gum or Skittles).

Sign up for Bartending Classes today at American Bartenders School in NYC and you can learn how to master these drinks and keep your customers coming back for more.

Eddie Murphy Awarded the Mark Twain Prize

On Sunday, Eddie Murphy, one of the unequivocal greatest comedians of all time, was awarded with an honor befitting of his legendary résumé. Mr. Murphy was honored with the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The prestigious award has previously been won by comedy greats Steve Martin, Richard Pryor and Carl Reiner, among others. Last Sunday’s affair was a star-studded event, with a number of Murphy’s high-profile comedy comrades hitting the stage to enshrine him. The list included George Lopez, Dave Chappelle, Trevor Noah and Murphy’s longtime collaborator Arsenio Hall. Joining them were a number of fellow SNL alumni like Chris Rock, Jay Pharoah, Joe Piscopo and Tracy Morgan. Morgan, of course, took the stage in one of his first onstage appearances since his heroic fight back from brutal car accident (we love you Tracy!)

Mr. Murphy’s accomplishments in the entertainment field are remarkable and endless. From his stand-alone performances on Saturday Night Live, to his groundbreaking stand-up specials (Raw and Delirious), to his transition into an international movie star (Beverly Hills Cop, 48 Hours, Trading Places), Eddie has left no stone unturned in his illustrious career. He was even nominated for an Academy Award in 2007 for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of troubled soul singer James “Thunder” Early. While he is now focusing more on selectively choosing films and making music, comedians everywhere will tell you that Eddie Murphy remains the funniest person on the planet. We at Stand Up NY congratulate Mr. Murphy on once again being recognized as a true legend of the entertainment industry.

Fallon Surprises Tonight Show Viewers

Jimmy Fallon stunned Tonight Show viewers Wednesday when he spontaneously “tagged out” in the middle of his monologue. His tag team partner? His predecessor Jay Leno. Leno was met with a roaring applause from the crowd and in return delivered a 3-minute monologue chock-full of old Leno mannerisms. Fallon returned to the monologue to deliver his own take on one of Leno’s jokes. On the way off stage Jay Leno joked, that he needed to leave due to an appearance on Colbert’s show, the rival to the Tonight Show. Leno is in New York City promoting his new show on CNBC, ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’.

Judah Friedlander Stops by Ahead of Book Release

Last week, 30 Rock alumnus Judah Friedlander showed up to Stand Up NY for two amazing performances, as he gets ready for his book release later next month. The highly accomplished comedian and actor has been honing his expertise in the industry for more than 25 years now, much of it as a New York native since moving from his hometown of Gaithersburg, Maryland. Nominated for an Independent Spirit Award in 2004, Friedlander has adorned himself to audiences with unforgettable roles in shows and films such as 30 Rock, American Splendor, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Date Movie—all to go along with his truly unique and enigmatic persona on stage, working as a national headliner for years. The “World Champion” also has a number of late night credits to his name, including The Daily Show, The Tonight Show and Last Call With Carson Daly.

All of those aside, the comedian isn’t done lengthening his résumé just yet. His new book If the Raindrops United will be in bookstores starting Tuesday, October 20th. The book follows his 2010 authorial debut How To Beat Up Anybody. Keeping in step with its creator, the book is truly one-of-a-kind, featuring drawings and cartoons done by the comedian himself. A hilarious preview for the book is available on Friedlander’s website here. He’s one of our personal favorites at Stand Up NY, so we strongly urge you to grab a copy of If The Raindrops United when it hits stores October 20th.

Another SNL Star Stops By Stand Up NY

Ho-hum- another week goes by, another star of the comedy industry stops by to entertain the crowd at Stand Up NY. Coming off of a month that included special guests like Jay Pharoah, Jackie Mason and George Wallace, September began with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson stopping by twice last week. Born in Staten Island, Davidson has recently shown a comedic acumen far beyond his years, as last year he became the first ever member of the SNL cast to be born in the 1990s. Now truly defining his position in ranks of comedy’s best, Pete has appeared recently on a number of TV shows, including Guy Code, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and recently in a raucous appearance on the dais for the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber.

Despite his youth, Davidson has performed on the institution like a seasoned veteran, garnering high praise for a number of hilarious appearances, including perfectly timed pieces on Weekend Update with Michael Che and Colin Jost. His easygoing demeanor and far-beyond-his-years vulnerability onstage have endeared him to audiences across the country all before his 22nd birthday. Twice last week, our audiences were treated by surprise performances by Pete Davidson, so they could see firsthand what the industry at large already has- he is the next big thing in comedy.
