BWW Photo Coverage: THE LINEUP WITH JIM CARUSO Is a Blast at The Birdland Theater

When word got out that Susie Mosher was taking the night off of The Lineup with Susie Mosher and that Jim Caruso was doing the hosting duties, this writer canceled all previous plans to, instead, see how the senior member of Birdland's hosting team would do at her weekly variety show, and what a great decision that was! There was no question that Ms. Mosher would line up exemplary talent for the night, but any chance to see Mr. Caruso in action is one not to be missed, and he certainly didn't disappoint last night. One of the naturally funniest people one is ever likely to meet, Caruso could easily do a stand-up comedy set in any nightclub, and last night his hosting duties gave rise to the question of whether or not Mosher could ever entice him to appear as a guest at The Lineup, doing ten minutes of comedy. It's something to consider, and maybe Mosher is just the person to sweet-talk him into it.

Having just visited The Lineup last week, I determined that my visit to the show would be a strictly photographic one, rather than a review. It should be said that all of the guests were so talented and so good at their craft, readers should know where these marvelous performers can, next, be caught in action, and, readers, trust me when I say tell you that they are all wonderful performers worth seeing live.
