Okay, I'll admit it, I'm not infallible. I have a terrible memory and a little bit of confirmation bias. So, when I pulled together my Guide to the Awesomest Comedy In LA, I left out two shows I totally meant to include and one show I didn't even know existed, but it's like they reached into my head and made the show I always wanted.
So, with exactly that much ado, I present three more great shows to check out this month.
Comedy Living Room (@comedylivinroom) - This monthly show seriously takes place in a living room near Melrose & Highland in Hollywood.. well, and the kitchen and the backyard, thanks to the wonders of modern technology. It's a stacked lineup every time and a lot of fun. It's usually on a Tuesday towards the end of the month.
Haunted Midnights at The Comedy Store (Event Info) - Oct 24 11 pm. This annual tradition is brought to you by Jeff Scott, The Store's pianist and living historian. He gathers videos, stories and old comedians together to talk about Gus, The Lady In White and all the other ghouls that populate the Most Haunted Building in LA. It ends in a flashlight tour through the nooks and crannies you didn't even know existed.
Iron Comic (Event Info) - Oct 7 at Largo. I find Largo shows a little pricey (and believe me, I'm not one of those people who expects you to bribe audience members with free admission and free beer and I certainly wish LA comedians had more opportunity to make decent money inside the city, but anyway) which is why I had never really bothered to look into this Iron Comic situation before. But it's a killer lineup - Kyle Kinane, Dana Gould, Laurie Kilmartin, Morgan Murphy, and Eric Andre, with music from Karen Kilgariff and Zach Sherwin. And, as I've stated many a times before, if Zach Sherwin is on your show, I'm about 200% more likely to attend. And it draws from the same spontaneous elements I love on The Improvised Stand-up Show and Picture This! So, if you've got the $25, it's definitely something to check out.
Oh, did I say "three"? Well, I remembered another one while I was typing, so now it's "four."
What's New - (Event Info) - Oct 8 at NerdMelt. I actually have no real idea what the premise is behind this podcast/stand-up show. Nerdmelt's take on Put Your Hands Together? Warm-up for the Meltdown Show TV show in development? I don't know, and I don't care because, as I mentioned, if you put Zach Sherwin on a show, I'm pretty much there. Plus some of my favorite funny pals Jerrod Carmichael, Brent Morin, Christian Spicer and Deal Delray round out the lineup.
