Veteran comics Barbara Holliday and Dave Reinitz helm Flappers, where renowned comedians such as Adam Sandler and Susie Abraham have stopped by to tickle the funny bones of audience members at two area stages. Some of the upcoming performers in May include headliner Dwayne Perkins, a Brooklyn native who, on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, pondered which emoticons are platonic and which are flirty. Opening several of his showcases are comics Kwame Siegel and Gillian Bellinger, a star in the hilariously scary movie Feeding Frenzy. Later in the month, the satirical political punditry of Will Durst casts its ballot to spread belly laughs among the people. Durst has mocked both sides of the political aisle, taking inspiration from lifelong heroes Thomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny to inject humor and intentional absurdity into guest spots on C-SPAN and CNN.
Flappers Comedy Club
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.
Now this is a classy comedy club! It was nice and clean, the seats were comfortable, and the food was great!LAURA K., Yelp, 3/23/12
