First aired: March 25, 2012.
Study with the Best: The Best of Barry features the versatile comedian/producer/reporter's most popular stories, all emanating from city boroughs. The episode combines information and irreverence in segments showcasing:
- Barry ad-libbing his way through a LaGuardia Community College yoga class for stressed-out taxi drivers
- An interview in Union Square with bassoonist and CUNY Ph.D. candidate Doug Quint, creator/entrepreneur behind the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck
- Free massages awarded to overworked and caught-by-surprise Queensboro Community College students
- And, in a change of pace, the compelling story of Hunter College graduate Jennifer Mascia, whose memoir, "Never Tell Our Business To Strangers," tells of a childhood spent as an unwitting fugitive from the law.
In addition to the above segments, Best of Barry also features outtake clips, including a romantic gondola serenade through the luminescent waters of the Gowanus Canal.
