Mo Goes to Rosie’s Home

So, Rosie sent a car to pick me up and take me to her home in Nyack, where she records her daily satellite radio show on which I was a guest.   Nyack is a charming town filled with Colonial and Victorian homes along the Hudson River.  As we passed through the security gate, I saw […]

Mo Goes on Broadway with ROSIE!

This was one of the most special nights I’ve had in nearly 14 years of standup comedy – performing with Rosie O’Donnell at Town Hall on Broadway. My good friend Ange took a picture of me outside the theater. That’s when it hit me, Holy Moly I am performing on Broadway with Rosie O’Donnell! Yes, […]

A Special Night at Carolines

So I had my big night headlining at Carolines. It was a very special night for me because while I’ve worked the club often over the years I’ve never headlined there. Carolines is my favorite club and I feel most at home there. My goal was to get 100 people to turn out on a […]

Joy/Whoopi Walkout

I’ve been reading reactions to Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walking off the set after Bill O’Reilly said Muslims attacked us on 9/11. “I hate those bitches” “Their vocal cords should be cut out” “Dumb C-nts.” These are words from men AND women. What is happening? We are sickened by extremists who silence women, who […]

Mo’s Dog Maxie speaks out….

Maxie wants you to come to Carolines on Broadway, where I am headlining on Tues, Oct 19th at 7:30pm. Say you’re coming to see me (even though you’re really coming to see her) and the cover is only $10. xo MO [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbTDZ9qiQ1c]

Ode to Joe

We’ve been friends since I was seven years old. Friends. Never more. Never less. Growing up we’d sit on our neighbor’s fence, halfway between our two homes, laughing as we hit each other with put downs and comebacks and wiseass comments. Laughing until my mother shouted from the front door, “Maureen, get yourself off that […]

A Day in the Park

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyErwUyWqOo] My friend Danny Cohen, a comic with whom I started in this soul-fulfilling business 13 years ago, makes funny, Chaplinesque videos. I was a part of his latest caper, which we filmed yesterday in Central Park with Danny as the Artist, along with Ted Alexandro as Rodrigo, the serious artist. I am a passerby […]

A one-eyed guy, a hack, and a diner

I worked at The Red Oak Diner in Hazlet, New Jersey last night.  A diner.  But it was terrific.  Sold out.  200 people.   Jersey is great.  People like Snooki give Jersey a bad name.  It’s like a big Irish family, there’s always one angry alcoholic who shames the entire family. The emcee was a one-eyed […]

Mo says leave the kids at home… pleeease!

I admit it — this Saturday night wasn’t my night at the Villa Roma  in the Catskills, one of the few non-Jewish resorts still left.   I was there three weeks ago and killed.  Ah, but this wasn’t three weeks ago, was it, Maureen?   The show began close to 11pm.  In came families with small children, guidos […]
