Enigmatic comedian, E! celebrity correspondent, and Chelsea Lately regular Michael Yo fires up a fresh batch of mischievous zingers for Hot Mess Comedy, a jubilee of tawdry humor and base instincts. With a keen wit and the ability to make cows chuckle until they spew milk out of their noses, Yo fills his bottomless-joke cache with material based on his Hollywood expertise and dating inexpertness. Other haughty and naughty high-octane comics include Sarah Tiana—best known as Carmen from the hit series Reno 911!—who jostles funny bones with her irreverent take on Mason-Dixon Line maxims, and motor-mouthed funnyman Nick Guerra, who shares his skewed perspective on current events and relationships in wincingly personal stories. Rounding out the Hot Mess roster, lanky satirist Mark Serritella mines his history of failed romances and his prior life as a first-grade teacher, and Jason Collings, who has toured with the likes of Jo Koy and Carlos Mencia, engages with a physical routine packed with astute observations about life and cupid's mis-aimed arrows.
The American Comedy Co.
Although the epicenter of downtown's Gaslamp Quarter buzzes with bars and restaurants, the comedy club nestled among it all may be the biggest draw. That’s because The American Comedy Co. consistently books nationally renowned comedians and television personalities such as Joe Rogan, Craig Robinson, and Maria Bamford. Yet to keep from being too exclusive, the independent establishment also welcomes fledgling comics to its stage for open mic nights, where they can practice their timing, develop their stage presence, and lift famous people’s fingerprints from the microphone stand.
