Nightlife - Comedy Clubs
You can't go wrong here. Considered the starting ground for many of today's hottest comedians and actors - including Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, David Letterman, Roseanne and countless others - is right next door to our hotel. The Best of the Comedy Store Room features professional stand-ups continuously on Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday is amateur night. Anyone with enough guts can take the stage for 3 minutes and take their big chance.
THE LAUGH FACTORY
Welcome to one of Sunset Boulevard’s original comedy clubs. Famous performers have included Bob Saget, Jim Carrey and Carlos Mencia.
No need to go to a Tonight Show taping to see Jay Leno, Richard Lewis, Damon Wayans or Drew Carey - they perform here regularly. Talented newcomers also perform here. Due to the popularity of the club, it's best to book a table in advance. Our well-informed concierge can assist you with a reservation.
L.A.'s answer to Chicago's Second City has been around for more than a quarter century, yet it remains the most innovative and funny group in town. The skits change every year or so, but they take new improvisational twists every night and the satire is often savage. The Groundlings were the springboard to fame for Pee-Wee Herman, Elvira and former Saturday Night Live stars Jon Lovitz, Phil Hartman, and Julia "It's Pat" Sweeney.

ACME COMEDY THEATER
See the long-running and completely improved soap-opera Scandal, or blast off to a galaxy way too out there with the serial comedy Star Force One. The Acme players also provide a barrage of laughs with their improv and sketch comedy acts.
UPRIGHT CITIZEN BRIGADE THEATRE (“UCB”)
