On February 7, 1985, Sylvia Miles brought her filmmaker friend Nelson Sullivan (March 5 1948 - July 4, 1989) who asked if he could film the performance! Not only did he capture her entire performance, a rarity in 1985, but one of Jamie's favorite ad libs, that was said prior to her singing Weeden and Finkle's song: I Don't Have to Know How Rotten You Are To Love You!

There is also an appearance by Jim Gaffigan, early in his career, at Laurie Beechman Theater on November 19, 1999. Since then Jim has gone on to become a top name in comedy with numerous TV Specials, movies and correspondent on CBS SUNDAY MORNING.

And last but certainly not least, on December 4, 2000, Tony Award Winner Daisy Eagan brought along her friend Clarke Thorell to accompany her at the West Bank Café's Laurie Beechman Theater singing Lucy Simon's Wynken, Blynken and Nod, that she recorded for Jamie's CD The Child in Me, Volume 2.
