What You'll Get

Improvisational comedy relies on sharp wits, quick tongues, and realistic-looking Martin Van Buren masks. Enjoy the spontaneous genius of people dressed like Old Kinderhook with today's Groupon: for $4, you get two tickets to the iO West Theater (up to a $20 value).

iO West Theater presents improv and sketch-comedy shows and, along with its comedy-sister, the iO Chicago Theater, has served as a training ground for some of America's best entertainers, including Tina Fey, Mike Myers, Chris Farley, and Eric Stonestreet. The theater's main stage (must be age 21+ to attend) features shows such as Top Story! Weekly, a 60-minute written show touching on America's newsliest items ($5 per ticket), and The Armando Show, 90 minutes worth of improv ripped from the monologue of a celebrity guest ($10 per ticket). There are also all-ages shows at Del Close Theater and The Loft. Across all stages, performers make up situations and details as they go along, and what hilarity emerges is a result of training, audience suggestion, and underlying psychological issues. Call ahead to reserve tickets to fill your empty soul with mirth.


MetroWize featured the iO West Theater, and Yelpers give the theater an average of four stars:

  • If you can tear yourself away from the gravitational pull of the bar, you can make your way to the cabaret-style theater. There, up-and-coming comedy performers are cutting their teeth and putting on one hell of a show. Although improvisation comedy is king at iO West, full sketch shows, musicals, or a bit of stand up also have a home here. One thing is for sure: at iO West, you will see the best of the best of L.A.'s comedy scene. – Jason Horton, MetroWize
  • I HIGHLY recommend checking this place out - so many funny people, most of whom you'll recognize from tv and film, it's cheap as hell, and a good time for all. – Julia W., Yelp
