“Dying to do Letterman” comedian Steve Mazan comes to the Ocean County Library

TOMS RIVER—Comedian and subject of the documentary “Dying to do Letterman” Steve Mazan will speak at the Ocean County Library Toms River branch (101 Washington Street) Friday, October 24 at 7 pm.

Mazan comes from the famous San Francisco scene that produced comedy legends such as Robin Williams and Dana Carvey. In his decade-plus career, Mazan has done stand-up everywhere from clubs and colleges across the country to corporate events, cruises, and many television shows. He even won an Emmy for his work writing on The Ellen Degeneres Show.

His clean and clever comedy landed him on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “The Bob & Tom Radio Show”, Sirius/XM Radio and more. He’s even done audience warm-up for shows such as “Deal or No Deal”. But of all the performances Steve has done, he is most proud of his eight trips to Iraq and Afghanistan to perform for our troops. He’s also the subject of the award-winning documentary “Dying to do Letterman.”

When Mazan learned he had cancer, and might only have five years to live, he dedicated himself to living his dream: performing comedy on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

The documentary chronicles his five-year journey, as he races his own ticking clock to achieve a nearly impossible goal. Hilarious, heart-breaking, and ultimately inspirational, Mazan’s journey brings a brand-new perspective to living with cancer.

This program is sponsored by the OceanFirst Foundation and the Ocean County Library Foundation.
