Rosie O’Donnell: rare standup from Night Flight’s Catch A Rising Star

By on February 26, 2015


Here’s a long lost comedy take with Rosie O’Donnell from Night Flight’s coverage of Catch A Rising Star in 1987. Night Flight dipped into the famous club on 77th and 1st Ave in NYC to film some up and coming comics, including Chris Rock, Lorne Elliot, Ken Ober and as seen here, O’Donnell.

The younger generation may not be aware that the former co-host of The View has a raunchier comedy background. Here she is discussing dating advice from her mother, Elvis impressions and why you shouldn’t be surprised if she spontaneously breaks out into song; it happens at least three times a day.
