Dean Edwards Headlines Gotham Comedy Club - Gotham Comedy Club
A talented Actor/Comedian, most people remember Dean Edwards since making his mark in comedy during two successful seasons as a cast member on ?Saturday Night Live? With such memorable impressions as Don Cheadle, Michael Jackson and Denzel Washington, as well as such original characters as ?Man in Elevator? and ?Cop#2?, Dean always pushed himself to the limits of creativity and exhaustion.

Doggie Diamonds' No Filter Podcast w/ Beanie Sigel - Highline Ballroom
AMEX Logo Beanie Sigel was born Dwight Grant in Philadelphia on March 6, 1974. Sigel was a name he took from that of a street in his tough south Philadelphia neighborhood; "Beanie" was a nickname his grandmother gave him. Like many other young people in musically rich Philadelphia, Sigel tried out his hip-hop wordsmith skills, appearing on a mixtape assembled by producer DJ Clue and contributing a verse to the Roots' "Adrenaline." In the fall of 1998 he caught the attention of the duo Philly's Most Wanted, later famed for their album Get Down or Lay Down, who were at the time little known beyond Philadelphia. The duo persuaded Sigel to join them at a meeting with the heads of the Roc-a-Fella label, rapper Jay-Z and entrepreneur Damon Dash, who were then well on their way to becoming the most consistent hit makers in hip-hop music. At the meeting, Sigel impressed both Jay-Z and Dash with his rhymes. He wasn't a virtuoso poet, but his material was straightforward and vivid, filled with detail about the violent life on Philadelphia's streets. A well respected contributing media personality, Doggie Diamonds has been at the forefront of many renowned one on one's with a multitude ... (read more)
