Description

International performer, James Smith, one of Australia’s best live standup comedians, will be joining an impressive all-pro lineup for an extraordinary comedy show at Comic Strip Live.

A former banking and finance lawyer, James decided to trade the courtroom for the stage as a professional comedian. His success was meteoric; within two months of his debut he progressed to the national final of the “Comic of the Year” at the Sydney Comedy Festival. He has since appeared on all of the major television network programs: Rove Live, The Footy Show, The Fat, The Comedy Channel’s Headliners and made countless other TV appearances.

James has also performed worldwide in the US, UK, Singapore, Malaysia, and of course, his native Australia.

About the Ticket Supplier: Comic Strip Live

"When you are a kid starting out as a stand-up comic, you don't dream about the cover of Time magazine. You dream about the 9 o'clock spot on Saturday night at the Comic Strip." --Jerry Seinfeld, to Liz Smith of the New York Post

Comic Strip Live, the longest running stand-up comedy club in New York City, celebrates its 30-year anniversary. In those 30 years Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and just about every other super star comedian started their careers here. We host special events, fundraisers, comedy classes, network TV and movie shoots, singles nights, after-prom shows and the best New Year's Eve event in NYC. With all of this to our name and 30 years of good old fashioned New York comedy, we can proudly claim over 1 billion laughs served.

Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Paul Reiser, George Wallace, Susie Essman, Judy Gold, Colin Quinn, Jim Breuer, Caroline Rhea, Damon Wayans, Dave Attell and Darrel Hammond are just a few of the many stars who began their illustrious careers at the Comic Strip.

"The most expertly booked club in the city. This showcase offers an eclectic mix of comedians every night of the week." --New York magazine
