The first time Eddie Murphy came into the club, he was only 18 and had a little too much attitude. A few days later, he apologized and we gave him a shot. Saturday Night Live soon followed and the rest is show biz history. Eddie in turn discovered Chris Rock at The Comic Strip one night. Rolling Stone magazine recently described Rock's career as "ballistic." Like so many acts, television Superstar Jerry Seinfeld worked for many years at the Comic Strip. Everybody called Seinfeld "Doctor Comedy" because there wasn't a bit Jerry couldn't fix. Paul Reiser was asked by a fellow Comic Strip performer to accompany him to a film audition. The Director asked Paul if he wanted to read for the part as well. He did and got the part! That film was "Diner" and it launched Paul's illustrious career.
