August 8-9 – Maureen Langan


From HBO, FOX, Comics Unleashed
Also featuring

I am a New York City-based standup comic – been one for 14 years.  My Irish immigrant mother and garbage man father told me and my five siblings that if we got educated and worked hard then life would reward us.   I scoff at them. Life is rewarding Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, and those freaks of The Jersey Shore. It makes me crazy! People ask “What does a gal from New Jersey have to do to make it in the biz?” Apparently, she has to do a governor from New York.
I’m a regular at Carolines on Broadway, one of the country’s premiere comedy clubs. I perform at clubs and festivals throughout the United States and the world, including Ireland, Scotland, Canada, New York, Boston, and Nantucket.   I’ve opened for Joy Behar, Steven Wright, and Rosie O’Donnell.
Prior to my life as a comic, I was a broadcast journalist for public television, where I covered politics and issues, and Bloomberg TV & Radio, where I satirized news and did man-on-the-street and celebrity interviews.  I created and hosted The Radio Ritas, a nationally-syndicated morning talk show.   I’ve chatted with Howard Stern, Joan Rivers, Phyllis Diller, George Carlin and many others.    I’ve won awards, made money, and had a dental plan.  I got into journalism because I had questions; now all you need is cleavage.
I continue to contribute commentary on television.  I’ve been on The Joy Behar Show, Fox’s Red Eye, MSNBC, ABC News, and The Onion.  I’ve also appeared on Comics Unleashed, HBO, in the Paramount Pictures film “Marci X,” and in many national commercials.  The Newswomen’s Club of NYC named me Best Commentator, and Planned Parenthood honored me with their prestigious Magee Award for commentary.
The Manhattan Association of Clubs and Cabarets (MAC) voted me Best Female Comic of 2009, which means the gay boys dig me, and I dig them.   I was a finalist in the 2009 San Francisco Comedy Competition. They tell me I’m the first woman in nearly two decades to finish in the top three.  The last one was Ellen Degeneres.
Some people have said nice things about me.  Some have not, but for now the nice will suffice:

“Langan made me laugh till I wet my pants. Not nice for a guy my age. She is to comedy what James Brown was to soul.”
Jerry Stiller, Comedian and Actor

“Smartly piercing wit…Bitterness is a useful comic tool and Langan wields it with skill and precision ‘I feel like Canada,’ she gripes. ‘I’ve got so much to offer, but nobody gives a sh-t.’”
Steve Bennett, Chortle.com

“Maureen is wry and wicked. Audiences love her and so do I!”
Joy Behar, The View and The Joy Behar Show

“With her wonderful Irish background and her feisty streak, Langan would make a great sitcom wife, mom or character. She’d be a great addition to E! Television or Comedy Central.”
Amelia David, Backstage Magazine

I grew up in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey, where there is no lake.

August 29-30 – Eddie Clark


From ESPN, Law & Order, Nick at Nite
Also featuring Scott Friedman & Renee Minter
February 1979. While attending Mercy college in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. Eddie was approached by members of the student government organization and asked to m.c. a talent show to be held at the school. All of the contestants were singers and Eddie’s job would be introducing the performers and entertaining the audience with comedy while the judges decided the winner of the talent show. After the last performer left the stage and the judges started to leave, Eddie asked the judges to return to there seats because, there was still one last contestant. Eddie then went on a 12-minute comedy rampage that ended with him winning 3rd place. It was then that Eddie knew what he wanted to do with his life.
In November of 1979 Eddie Clark and a friend walked into the Original Improvisation Comedy Club in New York City to audition for a regular spot at the club. Eddie got a chance to show the owner what he could do and despite his lack of experience, he thrilled everyone in the club that night…. Everyone…  except the owner. The club’s policy was that if the owner liked you she would talk to you. If she didn’t, the performer was to just walk by her without saying a word. As Eddie left the stage the owner looked away. Eddie walked outside with his friend and then suddenly turned around walked back into the club and whispered in the startled owner’s ear, “ Thanks for the opportunity to show the “PEOPLE” what I can do.” He has lived by that motto ever since. Eddie then left the club and never looked back. The New York Improv closed a few years later but Eddie is still going strong.
Old enough to remember the sixties yet young enough to enjoy the new millennium, Eddie Clark is still one of the hardest working comics on the circuit today. Eddie was born in Jamaica… QUEENS, NY and raised in the city of Mount Vernon, NY, where he developed his ability to induce laughter from total strangers. Eddie’s humor is a blend of personal experiences and everyday life. Eddie’s stand up has made him a favorite on morning radio shows around the country and has opened opportunities for him to help raise money and awareness for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure. Eddie appeared on Law & Order S.V.U. , the films “Blood Night” ( Currently available on DVD )”Camp” ( I.F.C.), “Salted Nuts” (featured at the 2006 “Sundance Film Festival” )   , ” The Flying Scissors.” , “and the Law & Order made for TV movie “Exiled” as well as several commercials & promo’s including, “TV Land Prime Movies, The Washington Post, OPTIMUM ONLINE, Major League Baseball, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Comcast Cable, Monster.Com, Nick jr. , National Geographic Channel, ADVANTA, care one credit, Quicken Loans, A&E “Cold Case Files,” Gothic Cabinet Craft, Red Lobster, Cablevision, Fox Sports and WCBS (New York channel 2). In 2003 Eddie appeared nationally on ESPN 2’s “Cold Pizza” and hosted two online shows at the U.S. Tennis Open for the U.S.T.A. and America Online. In 2004 Eddie Appeared on C.M.T. ( Country Music Television). The show (40 Greatest Done Me Wrong Songs) was one of the Top 5 Highest Rated Specials for C.M.T. in 2004! Eddie then went on to do two more specials for the network in 2005.  Eddie just finished working on a new project touting the advantages of natural gas which will be on your TV soon!Eddie has expanded his comedy to Carnival Cruise Lines!When describing Eddie’s style of entertainment one can only come to this conclusion…. Its just Eddie being Eddie!
