Good-night Mitzi Shore

mitzishorecollageOn Wednesday, April 11, 2018; Mitzi Shore, Co-Founder and Owner of The Comedy Store comedy club passed away at the age of 87. I did not know her; I never performed at the club and I personally know just one comedian that performed there. Her relationship to me is one of providing many other legends of the 1970s and 1980s comedy scene that impacted culture and influenced my dreams of stardom in my youth.

It’s not likely that era will soon be replicated. For that, her absence will affect future comedians more than they probably realize at this moment.

That bastard, Time, keeps speeding things up on us.
