Behind the Headlines at The Comedy Cellar’s New Comedy Central Stand Up Show: “This Week at the Comedy Cellar”
When I call him to talk about the new series, This Week at the Comedy Cellar, Ray Ellin (who is known to many as Aruba Ray) is sitting in Aruba, enjoying a short break in an intensive filming schedule, right before Thanksgiving.
