This was one of our favorite segments from the Social Media Breakfast 8 Tables 8 Topics meeting. We found Jamie Leszczynski’s talk funny, engaging and very informative.

The Thank-You Economy

Veteran sports reporter (and SU grad) Rich Cimini

Veteran sports reporter ( and SU alum) Rich Cimini

We went to see Rich Cimini not because he has some great stories about Bill Parcels, Rex Ryan and Jim Boheheim; not because he’s covered 24 Super Bowls and over 400 NFL games, but we went to say thank you. Cimini pulled us in on a story he was doing back in the day about Laveranues Coles and Steve Yarnell. You can see the photograph we shot for the piece here.

Cimini’s gesture helped us tremendously that year. Thanks Rich.

Also kudos to Professor John Nicholson, from the Newhouse Sports Media Center, who each year puts together a great roster of sports reporters to visit Syracuse and talk about their craft.

Behind the Scenes: Special shout out to the staff at Small Plates for showing us some love for the Fashion Week kick-off event. Sometimes big productions are all about the folk behind the scenes.

Dresscode202, designed by Patrise C.

Last night we had the pleasure of meeting designer Patrise, who moved to Syracuse from Washington, DC.  She showed a portion of her Dresscode202 collection for Day 2 of Syracuse Fashion Week, which was held at the Redhouse.

What’s your dress code?

King of Harts

Monday, April 6th, 2015

We used to think Kevin Hart was this generation’s king of comedy, but after hearing him on Sway in the Morning last month, he just may be the best CEO/Mogul who makes people laugh for a living. Check him out as he talks about increasing brand relevance and demonstrates how to deal with haters (warning: mature content).

Hart will bring his stand-up tour What Now to Syracuse in August. His live special will be taped at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia later that month.

Writer, comedian, producer Jenny Yang goes in for laughs during a show at HBC Gifford Auditorium on Wednesday.

LA-based writer, comedian and producer Jenny Yang is not afraid to get up in your face for some laughs. She had a show at HBC Gifford Auditorium on Wednesday.

April Fools may be for amateurs, but Jenny Yang is a top flight pro when it comes to the comedy game. She visited Syracuse and put on a hilarious show that touched on topics such as “Fear of Dating White Guys,” “Yellow Fever,” “Decor/Asians,” Real Babies v. Food Babies” and her left swipe tendencies on Tinder.  Yang is currently on the road producing the Dis/Orient/ed Tour, and she was featured in the 2013 documentary Why We Laugh: Funny Women.  To us the only down side of her show was that it conflicted with an appearance on campus by Taraji P. Henson.

We hope Yang will return to do a few nights at the Funny Bone when her tour returns to the East Coast.

Yang has a show tonight at Swarthmore College.
