The Cigar Authority is the name of a new television show or better yet, an internet “Live” video show for and about cigars. This is a first of its kind show that took place with its pilot show on Saturday April 3rd 2010 at 10 am eastern standard time. Every Saturday at noon, a team of announcers, self proclaimed cigar experts or soon to be, will smoke, talk and judge Premium Cigars, cigar accessories and the finer things in life for two hours each week.
David Garofalo, retail cigar store owner of Two Guys Smoke Shop for over 25 year will not only provide expert information but will also provide the venue where the show will be filmed live each week, record live in one of his shops in New Hampshire each week for all to see as you walk right into the show when they come in. Guests, phone-ins, contests, giveaways, information and fun is what to expect each week as their plan is to keep it light and addictive, unlike the cigars they smoke. Archived videos of previous shows can be found right here!!
David Garofalo has been a cigar smoker and active in a cigar business for over 25 years. He is the owner, founder and President of Two Guys Smoke Shop in New Hampshire. There are 3 store locations, which are in Salem, Nashua, and Seabrook.

David owns and operates a mail order catalogue division of Two Guys at www.2GuysCigars.com for over 20 years and is considered by many as an ultimate cigar expert in the trade. David’s love and passion for cigars, keen palate, and open personality makes him a perfect candidate for The Cigar Authority.
Mr. Jonathan was a freshman and needed some spending money. He found a job as a floor guard at the local roller rink. The DJ called in sick and like a scene from a cheesy 80’s movie the manager pulled him out and threw him head first into the DJ booth with less than a thirty second tutorial on how things worked. Mr. Jonathan was hooked. After two months, the private party business was born. In less than one year, Jonathan worked his way up to the top spot.
Years later, he branched out on his own, assuming the moniker of “Mr. Jonathan”. Fast forward to today: www.MrJonathanIsMyDJ.com is now an established music, M.C., and event production service.
