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…

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…

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.…

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…

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…

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…

Anyone read Joan Rivers article?

Anyone read the article about Joan Rivers in New York Magazine?   I love her, read her books, interviewed her, seen her perform, but I was surprised by the bitterness and lack of graciousness she showed when talking about comics like Sarah…

Mo does the weather and there is video to prove it!

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTtyOC5GZcA] Ok, so it looks as if I finally know how to embed.   Actually, all credit goes to my friend Bob Johnson, Emperor of Embedding.  He sent me a link, I uploaded or downloaded or got loaded. …

MO's head explodes

I'm learning all about social networking.  Yes, I, too thought that a glass of wine and riveting conversation would be enough, but apparently that is not so.    I'm working w/ a young chap who is merging and forging and connecting me to…
