Hoboken411 reader Phil sent this crap-tastic cameraphone pic in from this past weekends Comedy Rocks NJ show at Lana Lounge. Proof that Artie was actually there – and not in rehab!!

700 people? Wow!

“Although the acoustics were less than ideal, and the lighting a little dodgy, Artie Lange performed a very fun 45 set of comedy for about 700 people last night at the Lana Lounge for the New Jersey Rocks charity.”

Artie Lange Headlines benefit show

By now, I’m sure some of you have noticed the posters throughout town – promoting this Artie Lange comedy event on May 3, 2009: Comedy Rocks, NJ.

Artie Lange headlines Comedy Rocks NJ at Lana Lounge on May 3, 2009.

From what I read on the website – it’s a benefit for the Valerie Fund – which is a good cause.

But after visiting the super-fancy website – and seeing the sponsors, you’d expect this to be held at a bigger venue than Lana Lounge, right? What is the capacity of Lana Lounge anyway? A few hundred? And it says “Comedy & Rock concert,” but I didn’t see any musical acts on the site. Looked a bit disorganized, quite frankly.

Not trying to bash the event by any means, just wondering if I’m missing something. Or am I simply not in tune with the marketing?

I was there Sunday at Lana, and although it wasnt perfect I got to see a really funny performance! The venue could have been better but I ate, had a few drinks, laughed, and donated to a cause! The crowd was very HAPPY and well behaved. I am guessing there were about 500 people, all fans of the Stern show. Thanks to Artie and the promoters for a good nite!

I was there on Sunday night and there was no where near 700 people in there. I would say 400 tops and that is pushing it.

They can fit 700 people in Lana? I find that hard to believe.

Lana is pretty big. Not sure if the one large room and upstairs area I am thinking of can really fit 700 but the space is pretty big. It has been a couple of years since I have dipped into there.

Anybody hear Artie’s endorsement of Ravi Bhalla on the Stern show last week? Hilarious!
