By Ceramicist Susan Tunick

I have executed a number of commissions during the last 25 years. Four were public projects and the others were for private clients or site-specific installations. As a counterpoint to these, I began to explore a series of small geometric works. This led to an extended investigation of the rectangular ‘brick’ form. Created in wooden molds, or using an extruder, I have been carving and assembling these forms in numerous ways.”

About the Gotham Comedy Club




Gotham Comedy Club

New York City

Founded by Chris Mazzilli and Mike Reisman, Gotham Comedy Club opened its doors on May 10th, 1996. 

Currently owned and operated by brothers Chris and Steven Mazzilli, who teamed up in 2005, the club has launched the careers of some of the biggest stars in Comedy.

This upscale comedy club has a long history of film and television production. Jerry Seinfeld filmed his documentary “Comedian” at the club. The Emmy-nominated “Last Comic Standing” spent four seasons at Gotham. “Live at Gotham” for Comedy Central hosted by icons like Kevin Hart, Bill Burr, Jim Breuer, and Lewis Black turned the venue into a household name. Gaffigan chose the club for the backdrop of his series “The Jim Gaffigan Show”.
