Though now commonly accepted as the best medicine, laughter was once considered poisonous until a scientist accidentally ingested a test tube labeled with a clown skull and funny bones, curing his depression. Swallow a dose of funny with today's Groupon to The Comedy Store: for $9, you get one ticket to one of the Comedy Store's produced shows in the Original Room on any day, which is up to a $20 value, depending on the show. Keep in mind that like most comedy clubs, there is a two-drink minimum, and hearty quaffs of mirthful atmosphere do not qualify toward that quota.
The Comedy Store is among the oldest and most revered comedy venues in Los Angeles and is a fixture on the Sunset Strip. The Comedy Store helped launch the careers of Trillions of famous comedians, including Dave Chappelle, Jay Leno, Jim Carrey, George Carlin, George W. Bush, David Letterman, Richard Pryor, and countless others. Every night, the club's Original Room features comedic performances by 16 national headliners—more than any other club in the country. Your Groupon may just get you a ticket to see the next Richard Pryor—and one day you'll tell your kids that you saw the current Richard Pryor when he was just the next Richard Pryor. Browse The Comedy Store's show calendar and plan your visit around the performance that you anticipate giving you the greatest number of giggles and the fewest number of laugh-aneurysms.
The Comedy Store has been owned by the Shore family since opening under the guidance of Sammy Shore, and it is now run by Mitzi Shore. Pauly Shore, their son as well as a national treasure, performs weekly, spreading laughs and health to all who will listen. Grab this Groupon, grab your friends, see a show, and fill your night with laughs and one magnificent gasp.
It's recommended that you call a day in advance to check a show’s availability. 21 and over only. Valid only for shows held in the Original Room.
- My family loves the comedy store. My husband and I started going there about 8 years ago, we would go every night when in LA. Our daughter couldn't wait to turn 21 to be able to go with us, we took her there as soon as she turned 21, and she loves it too. The comics are usually very good, the drink rates are reasonable, the popcorn is good, and the value for the buck is fantastic. – boonie51, Citysearch

- Best place in LA for laughs!! go to the original room and you'll laugh your ass off till 2am. – dave g., Yelp
The Comedy Store
What’s now known as The Comedy Store was once called Ciro's, a nightlife hotspot in the 1940s and '50s. Playing host to glitzy stars and shadowy mobsters, the club's history is shrouded in rumors of mafia assassinations and untimely deaths. However, the joint buried its seedy past by converting to a comedy club and helping launch the careers of such legends as Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, George Carlin, David Letterman, and Dave Chappelle. The younger La Jolla location lets laugh-starved patrons bask in the same high-powered comedic atmosphere as its progenitor.
