Jeffrey L. Gurian

Open Mic Nights All Over The City

WENT to Nightingales on 13th Street and 2nd Avenue to catch Jessica Delfino's weekly show, and her great line-up of "up and comers."  I got to see the fabulous Shlomoh Sherman, the only comic with a silent "h" at the end of his name.

He questions what a name would be like made of all silent letters.  He's a funny guy, and you'll also be hearing a lot about him.  He better be funny.  I'm his coach!   Check out his site at

He wrote and directed The "Men Who" Series of short films for the Toyota Comedy Festival. He also wrote for MTV and USA Network, and was one of the writers of Sony's first interactive film.

It has since become an award-winning film as it won Best Comedy Feature at the Marco Island Film Festival and Valley Film Festival in Hollywood.
