May Comedy Guide

Oh man, I am getting bad at getting this up at the top of the month, sorry guys!

First some...

Blatant Self Promotion!

I started a podcast guys!  It's called What's Your Problem and deals with the many, many personal and professional problems comedians face.  I'll be recording LIVE from Red Rock Bar & Grill on Tuesday May 24th at 8 pm.

The SHP Show

My Barbara Gordon - Amy Hawthorne - will be performing on the SHP Show at Red Rock on Wednesday May 25th - 7:30 pm.  The Headliner is Chris Franjola and features the very funny Zane Helberg, Max Silverstein and Rell Battle.  It's FREE!

ok, now on to the unbiased stuff!




May Highlights 


A group of people (telling jokes)

Tuesday, May 17 - 10:30 pm -  $5 (Tickets)

Hollywood Improv Lab

It's a Bay Area invasion with Fernando Soltero, Robby Cole, Mary Van Note, Sammy Obeid and Brendan Lynch.  If you want to see some folks you probably haven't had the chance to see around town that much yet, this is a great show for you to check out.


Wide Open Comedy

Thursday, May 19  - 9:00pm - $5 (More Info)

Sal's Comedy Hole

Jimmy Talarico's wild and wacky ride of a show is back with Mack Lindsay, Jason Gillearn, Chris Neff and more!  It generally devolves into a strange comedy orgy - almost verging on a sexual one, so if that's your thing, this is your night.




Walsh Brothers Show

Saturday, May 28 - Midnight - $5 (More Info)


Man, I love these guys and this show.  Even though you're packed in the tight little UCB box, you'll have a great time with this crazy wacky mix of stand-up, characters, sketches and general mayhem.  Go.





Everyday Awesomeness


There's great comedy every day, check out these regular shows and great performers

The Ding Dong Show

Mondays, 10:30 pm - FREE

The Comedy Store - Belly Room

Since returning from its hiatus, the Ding Dong Show has been better than ever.  It's packing the house and even inspired Mack Lindsay to use his 15 minute potluck set to explain just how amazing it is to the audience members.  If you haven't seen it, come this week!  You'll never regret it.


Meltdown Show

Wednesdays 8:30 pm - $8

Meltdown Comics - 7522 Sunset (at Gardner) -

Nerd alert! Smart comedy from funny folks like Moshe Kasher, Kyle Kinane, Jackie Kashian, Rob Delaney and hosts Kumail Nanjiani and Jonah Ray. Hey, it's in the back of a comic book shop, what did you expect?

Comedy Juice at the Improv

Wednesdays, 10 pm - $14

Stellar lineup every week & bustling post-show bar scene. What to I mean by “stellar”? Well, how about Doug Benson, Joe Rogan, Bryan Callen, Nick Kroll, and Jeffrey Ross.

Potluck at The Comedy Store

Sunday & Mondays 7 pm – Free before 9

40 comics in one night? Yep, that's right. Starting at 7 pm with an open mic, followed by two hours of young comics doing 3 minute sets and ending with hours of pop-ins from folks like Ari Shaffir, Nick Youssef, Natasha Leggero, and Leslie Jones
