It was a very special Living Room indeed! Every comic had a different reason to celebrate, and a new reason to hope (for laughs).

Host of Honor Mo Diggs introduced the following lineup:
Cesar Zamora
Claudia Cogan
Luke Thayer
Mike Drucker
and a reading by Kambri Crews

With special guest appearances by poet Elizabeth Alexander and flight attendant Lisa Hulvershorn.

Abbi and Luke
Abbi and Luke welcomed viewers to the fifty-first show and celebrated new beginnings. A new president, a new year, and a new job search for Abbi. Luke gave her pointers, because he's a job-having know-it-all.

Mo Diggs
Mo Diggs rejoiced as host for the first time, and warned of the pitfalls of putting the moves on someone with comedy albums.

Cesar Zamora
Cesar Zamora celebrated his first set on the Living Room show by discussing his Mexican heritage and other ethnicities he is not.

Abbi Crutchfield as Elizabeth Alexander
American poet Elizabeth Alexander read an alternate version of the poem she read at last Tuesday's presidential inauguration. Although it was mainly just an ode to steak, it was more interesting than her original reading.

Claudia Cogan
Claudia Cogan also made her Living Room debut and shared her dreams of creating new words based on herself. Because she's humble.

Luke Thayer
Back from Mexico, Luke Thayer came to fill the room with the holy spirit! Or l'espiritu santo.

Abbi Crutchfield as Flight Attendant Lisa Hulvershorn
Survivor of the miraculous crash, flight 1549 flight attendant Lisa Hulvershorn celebrated her survival and shared her opinion on others making headlines. She doubted they were as lucky as she is.

Mike Drucker
Mike Drucker returned to the show, this time with anec dotes on growing up chunky and later being heckled by himself. Ouch! And hahahahaha.

Kambri Crews
Kambri Crews gave the show its first comedy reading, enjoying her freedom and recounting the dangers of smuggling Juicy Fruit to the wrong kind of guy.

Winner!  Claudia Cogan
Everyone had an amazing set, but Claudia Cogan was voted the Funniest Comedian of All Time! She'll have plenty of reason to go shopping so she can fill up her impostor Coach bag!

Get your girlfriend a knock-off and have her show it off at our Valentine's Day show on February 13th!
