Welcome to ComedyGroupie

What the hell is this site, you ask?  Well, it's not some kind of weird chucklefucker personal ad.  (That's the term for the other kind of comedy groupie).  It's a site about stand-up comedy, mostly the live stand-up scene in Los Angeles (and now New York!), but sometimes some other stuff that tickles my fancy.   

I love comedy.  And comedians.  Probably a little too much.

What's Up
Have You Checked out The Belly Room Lately?

The Belly Room is the smallest of The Comedy Store's three showrooms.  It was originally founded to provide more stage time for female comedians (c'mon, Mitzi, you couldn't just put more of them in the OR?) but devolved into a room full of bringer shows after the comedy bust in the 90's. The Ding Dong Show and Crack 'Em Up Thursdays remained the two consistent shows delivery a quality curated program every week.

But lately, the intimate space has seen a resurgence (shout out to manager Adam Eget), with fresh blood being pumped in thanks to #KILLTONYThe Roast Battle, two late night open mics, and Penthouse Comedy.

About Comedy Groupie

I like comedy.  No, I love comedy... and comedians.  Probably a little more than I should.  What can I say, they're like funny, insecure rock stars.  

The "Comedy Groupie" name started out as a bit of a joke, because I love comics so much that I thought they should have their own groupies.  Joke's on me, turns out they do.  I'm not that kind. (BTW, the official term for comedy groupies is "chucklefucker" - pass it on)

What I am is someone whose been privileged enough to be able to watch some of the best acts in Los Angeles on a regular basis, as well as see young up-and-comers grow and change.
