The Downtown Comedy Club, one of Los Angeles’ first laugh-manufacturing establishments, allows visitors to escape the stresses of the workweek with a rotating stable of top-tier standup talent that conquers the weekend. Comic legend Garrett Morris, now seen on CBS’s Two Broke Girls, hosts each showcase, warming the crowd with charming wit and tales of how he outlived the original cast of Saturday Night Live. Although schedules are subject to change, Friday- and Saturday-night shows typically last from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m., with an open mic at 7 p.m., headliners at 8 p.m., and a main show at 9 p.m. The bill remains consistently loaded with fresh-faced and seasoned funny folk, including Last Comic Standing and The Tonight Show veterans, along with aspiring stars in the twilight before their mismatched-marriage sitcom.
While directing their laughter toward the stage, chuckle fiends stay refreshed with a choice of foreign and domestic beers, multicolored wine, soft drinks, and water. The Downtown Comedy Club avoids the typical two-drink minimum that less-confident comedy clubs strictly enforce and offers a money-back guarantee if knees go unslapped, spit takes remain dry, or guffaws don’t guffaw.

About Garrett Morris’ Downtown Blues and Comedy Club
A rare outlet for commercially sanctioned laughter in downtown Los Angeles, Garrett Morris’ Downtown Blues and Comedy Club helps visitors escape the stresses of the workweek with a rotating stable of top-tier standup talent every Friday and Saturday. Comic legend Garrett Morris, now seen as Earl on CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, hosts showcases of comic talent with charming wit and tales of how he outlived the original cast of Saturday Night Live. The bill remains consistently loaded with fresh-faced and seasoned funny folk, with past luminaries including George Lopez, Margaret Cho, and Wayne Brady, along with aspiring stars in the twilight before their first mismatched-marriage sitcom.
Keeping true to its name and Morris’ roots in the New Orleans music scene, the venue often punctuates its comedy shows with performances from top blues artists—including Morris himself, who has lent his soulful pipes to the Harry Belafonte Singers—that add melody to the mirth. While weekend shows feature Garrett’s hosting and harmonies along with the headlining acts, the Thursday Night Experience allows youthful burgeoning comics and musicians to hog the spotlight.
