Comedy to See in Los Angeles
- 1.UCB TheaterThis is the clear winner in my opinion if you want to see the most contemporary, interesting comedy being done by talented new people. Bonus: very affordable price. Hit and miss but so is everything. Highlights: Carmen Esposito's standup show on Tuesdays, ASSSSCAT on weekends, Shitty Jobs on Sundays.
- 2.The ImprovMy personal favorite of the traditional comedy clubs. The most polished and comfortable environment, by a slight margin in my opinion. Call ahead to hear the lineup! But that is just a personal "brand" choice. There is great comedy also being done at... And as always, comedy clubs are hit and miss and expensive...
- 3.The Laugh FactoryOn the Sunset Strip. HIGHLY recommend Chocolate Sundays, the black show on Sunday nights. Really great shows.
- 4.The Comedy StoreNot my personal scene but I respect it as the toughest room in town and the most legendary in LA if not the country. On the Sunset Strip, blocks from the Laugh Factory.
