Comic Strip Live is a weekly, late-night, hour-long stand-up comedy showcase that aired on the Fox network from 1989-1994. It started as a local show at Igby's comedy club. It was originally hosted by John Mulrooney and filmed at the comedy club, Igby's. Jamie Masada, owner of the Laugh Factory proposed that they take the show nationally and Fox agreed and moved the show to the Laugh Factory in Hollywood. Mulrooney was replaced by Gary Kroeger for the second season and then Wayne Cotter for the remaining seasons. By the end of the run, the show was filmed at the Laugh Factory.
