Stand-up Comic Robert Buscemi to Record First CD Tonight

Robert Buscemi | Photo: Elizabeth McQuernChi-town indie comedy darling Robert Buscemi finally made the long-threatened move to the left coast this past May, and he barely stopped to unpack before hitting the stand-up stages of Los Angeles.

He's been part of "The Fake Show" (Eddie Pepitone, Frank Conniff, and John Vargas's Wednesday show at the Fake Gallery), "Tiger Lily" (Maria Bamford and Melinda Hill's Monday Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill show), "12 Shiny Nickels" (Dan Bialek's late show Fridays and Saturdays at the Sunset Gardner Stages), "The Josh & Josh Show" (Josh Haness and Josh Weinstein's Thursday show at Bar Lubitsch), "The Great and Secret Show" (the Walsh brothers' Hollywood Improv Thursday show) and "The Tomorrow Show" (Ron Lynch's Saturday midnight show in Hollywood).

But tonight, he'll perform a long set, recorded for posterity and as part of the Rooftop Comedy CD Series at 8:30PM at Hollywood Improv's Comedy Lab (8158 Melrose Ave.).

For us CHI kids, he'll be back in town this week Thursday, performing at the newest hotness Riot Comedy on Thursday, the wacky and wonderful Entertaining Julia on Sunday, and will be back with his old Chicago Underground Comedy cohorts next Tues., Sept. 29.

Thanks so much to everyone who came! Was a fantastic night, and stone-cold-murderin' Rob Delaney did a set and introduced me. He's the best. Thanks to, the Hollywood Improv, and the audience. And to The Apiary for writing it up here. A truly memorable evening. -BUSCEMI
