If you remember some of Cincinnati's early comedy clubs like D.W. Eye, Giggles, or Aunt Maudie's, you may have seen comedians Michael Flannery or Alex Bernstein on stage.

Alex Bernstein was a Wyoming High School senior when he made stand-up comedy debut at Cincinnati's D.W. Eye bar on Calhoun Street in 1981.

"I was at the right place at the right time," says Bernstein, who performed 78 times in a year as a teen at D.W. Eye, the Sand Bar, Lakewood Tavern and the old Wishing Well restaurant at Reading and Galbraith roads.
