Don't sit in some "Irish" bar and wake up the next day to find your Green Beer goggles have done you wrong. Come hang out with the hottest porn stars, pole dancers and comedians at the Hollywood Improv. Sam Tripoli serves as ringmaster for this variety show straight from Sodom & Gomorrah. Sketch comedy, stand-up, mind-blowing pole dancing, porn star fan mail, songs, videos and the Golden Schlong Award make this one of the most fun ways to spend a couple of hours with your clothes on.
