From the back of the room to your room, The Comic's Comic is your definitive guide to comedians, comedy and comedy news. Former newspaper reporter Sean L. McCarthy launched the site in November 2007, a month after winning New York's Funniest Reporter contest.
Comedy has been treated as the ugly stepchild of the performing arts by the mainstream media -- and even by Hollywood -- for decades. Your local newspaper, if you still read it in print, might interview a stand-up comedian who comes to town. And the local radio and TV stations might then invite said comedians to come on the air, only to immediately treat them as dancing monkeys. "Tell us a joke!" "Tell us another joke!"
Comedy and comedians deserve better. Which is what McCarthy and The Comic's Comic have strived to do, and will keep on striving to do, working the comedy beat to bring you the best information as well as the funniest new things to read, listen to and watch.
The ECNY Awards named The Comic's Comic "Best Website" in 2011. If you've got a hot comedy scoop or otherwise would like to contribute to the site, email the editor at email@example.com.
