Who’s per­form­ing at The Laugh­ter Fac­tory?

“The very first is­sue of What’s

On was sup­posed to be printed a month ear­lier, but just as the mag­a­zine had gone to print, the al­co­hol li­cens­ing laws changed. As a re­sult, we had to stop the press, re­move all ref­er­ences to al­co­hol, and prop­erly launch the mag­a­zine a month later. I also re­moved my name un­der­neath my Ed­i­tor’s Let­ter just in case it was the first – and last – is­sue to be pub­lished!

The cover was made from a col­lage of pho­tographs that I put on a card­board base. We made it on the floor of my de­signer friend Brian Adam’s apart­ment. The orig­i­nal cover is still hang­ing in my of­fice. He helped lay out the first six is­sues un­til we could em­ploy our first de­signer.”
