Barbra Streisand

Chris's improv comedy buddy Tom Carrozza dug up this old picture from 1982. It was taken in what we called our Good N Plenty pink basement theatre at 2 Bond Street in the East Village. That's Tom in the foreground raising his finger. Chris is in the background chatting with Jon Peters. The lady behind Tom's finger? Barbra Streisand. She and Peters came to our basement theatre that December for a command comedy performance and to take part in our annual holiday party. Crackers. Cheese. Jugs of cheap wine. Barbara Streisand. Ah, those were the days my friend. We thought they'd never end.

Robin Williams

Can you name that celeb??? And that boyish author in the back row? (Robin Williams was in NYC shooting Moscow On The Hudson and did a couple weekend shows with Chris's improv group on his days off!)
