A year after Hurricane Sandy almost took away his comedy club, Steve Hofstetter is going strong and ready to help revitalize Astoria. His work continues on Dec. 14th as the Laughing Devil’s “Temple of Comedy” takes over the Astoria Center of Israel to help raise funds for the neighborhood synagogue. I caught up with Steve while he was on the road in Seattle to find out more about his upcoming work.
