The original The Comedy Store in Los Angeles helped launch the careers of professional funny-bone ticklers such as Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, George Carlin, David Letterman, and Dave Chappelle. The Hollywood location unleashes a beehive of belly laughs, with live stand-up shows held five nights a week. Upcoming shows include The Daily Show's Al Madrigal and the regularly featured "Late Night Rumble", a showcase of envelope-pushing, experimental, and adult humor covering subjects like coffee and rental-car insurance. Call at least 24 hours in advance to reserve your ticket—seats are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis—and do your part to help deplete the planet of its limited laugh supply with a night of chuckles and chortles at The Comedy Store in Hollywood.
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.
