Founded by a pair of stage-seasoned comedians, Flappers Comedy Club flaunts a parade of acclaimed acts across its classic brick-backed stages while the scent of freshly baked pizzas and drinks tempt the senses. Audience members sidle up to the cocktail-style seating for an intimate night of laughs for two or a raucous group celebration, basking in a generous vantage point to glimpse their favorite standup stars and flirt with their favorite overhead spotlight. Upcoming comics include Paul Ogata (Claremont, August 31–September 1), the winner of the 32nd San Francisco International Stand Up Comedy Competition in 2007. Paul’s edgy diatribes about his Asian American upbringing work audiences from titters to raucous laughter, and his other material veers into such absurdist territory as meditations on the drug habits of Muppets. Bil Dwyer (Burbank, August 31–September 1), on the other hand, uses his beaming smile and good-natured demeanor to put audiences at ease before whipping one-liners and sarcastic observations about marriage and fatherhood directly at funny bones.
Alternatively, private comedy parties give patrons the opportunity to create an unforgettable night for office workers, extended families, or a carful of clowns. After talking to the organizer, Flappers searches through its rolodex of chuckle crafters, finding the perfect comedians for any party. Once the night arrives, guests enter The Yoo-Hoo Room through a private entrance, avoiding lines and crowds while fortifying a VIP atmosphere. Inside, show-goers dig into the Fatty Arbuckle buffet and down delectable cocktails while enjoying custom laughs.
Flappers Comedy Club
Flappers Comedy Club's multifarious menu brims with innovative pizzas, mouthwatering wings, and an extensive drink selection, all of which work together to invigorate taste buds while knees frantically shield periodic slaps. Smoky wood-fired pizza crusts cradle a range of sliceable selections, such as the BLAT, which mimics the classic sandwich by swathing sizzling cheese, tomato, and bacon in cool lettuce, avocado, and creamy california ranch. Wings don a rustic wood-fired flavor beneath a kaleidoscope of sauces, including buffalo, cranberry chipotle, and parmesan ranch, before diving into cold blue-cheese or ranch dressing.
Flappers Comedy Club's prices vary throughout the week.

Dave Reinitz packed up all his belongings into a motor home, left New York, and began driving across the country because he was bored. When the engine finally blew, he was in Los Angeles, and decided that was where he would stay. As if by providence, Dave immediately took to his newfound city's comedy scene. Eventually, he partnered up with comedian Barbara Holliday for his life's next great adventure—Flappers Comedy Club.
Today, Barbara, whose credits include Naked Gun 33 1/3 and Friends, co-manages the multipurpose club she owns with Dave. A breeding ground for new talent, the venue plays host to standup comics and variety acts, and gives up-and-comers a hand with comedy classes called Flappers University. Many local and rising comedians have tested their standup material at Flappers, and the stage has supported the seasoned weight of stars such as Dave Attell and Jason Alexander. Before, during, or after shows, patrons can fuel their giggle fits with grub from the club's onsite restaurant, including Cajun-spiced burgers, seared ahi, and brick-oven pizzas.
