Real estate bigwigs brought their “A” game to David Moore’s “Funny
Business” comedy show for charity at Caroline’s comedy club in Times
Square last Thursday night (see highlights in the video below). Stephen Siegel,
chairman of global brokerage at CB Richard Ellis, told jokes about the
down real estate market, the bad job market and at least one that was
not family friendly. The show also featured schtick by Jonathan Tisch, chief executive of Loews Hotels, who sang a
rendition of the Frank Sinatra song “It was a very good year.” He
started out: “When I was 53 — it was a very good year — it was a very
good year for hotel chains and travel. The money flowed free. It was
before AIG. It was 2006.” And Stew Leonard, president and CEO of
popular grocery chain Stew Leonard, told a Madoff joke. The charity
comedy show was hosted by David Moore, CEO of Register.com and vice
chairman of private jet company Marquis Jet. TRD
