Tom McCaffrey’s CD recording, 4/20/2008

Tom McCaffrey will record his first comedy CD at 8 p.m. tonight at Pianos in NYC, something made more newsworthy by the fact that McCaffrey is doing so for a brand-new record label, It Takes A Lot To Laugh Records (which takes a lot of space on the side of a CD). The label comes from Scott Rogowsky and Travis Sluss. Sluss, the president/founder of Crazy Hair Productions and CHP Management, previously has worked the music side of the business with Regina Spektor, Paolo Nutini and The Spin Doctors, among others. Rogowsky is helping Sluss extend his brand management into comedy. "We hope this works," Rogowsky told me over the weekend. "It’s an experiment for all of us." McCaffrey, a native New Yorker, spent a brief time early in his comedy career in Los Angeles before returning home in September 2001. He was a finalist in the 2003 Comedy Central Laugh Riots contest, and featured on the Invite Them Up CD compilation. Here is a brief interview, recorded under the shadow of darkness outside Rififi in the East Village on Friday night, to talk a little bit about his CD recording.
