LA Comedy Clubs

Now UCB, Now You Don’t!

Upright Citizens Brigade

“Between the Franklin and Sunset locations, there’s always something going on at UCB. Amy Poehler is goals AF, so it makes sense that this creation of hers is a standout. I’ve done everything here from sketch shows to rap battles. It’s a place to perform and learn. When people ask me, ‘How do I dip my toe into comedy or acting?’ I tell them, ‘Take an improv class at UCB!’”—Sherry Cola

Silverlake It ‘Til You Make It

The Lyric Hyperion

“My first experience at this intimate Eastside café was when I tested a few jokes during a ‘New Material Night’ and I had a damn hoot. Since then, I’ve always looked forward to coming here. There’s zero pressure and no judgment from the audience. Everyone’s kinda just hanging out and, honestly, that’s how it should be.”—Sherry Cola

Pack That Ass Up

The Pack Theater

“This space has a classic underground/indie vibe with eclectic shows, and no cover or drink minimum. I’ve had the honor of bringing my characters “Nuocki Mum” and “Lil’ Tasty” on stage here. They also have cool open mic nights, with one style in particular called “Set List” where they give you a random suggestion and you riff like your life depended on it. What a thrill!”

Sunset Smiles

Laugh Factory

“They recently named me one of their “Fresh Faces” so I’m a bit biased, but this bright yellow marquee on Sunset Boulevard lives up to its name. Looking back on all the shows I’ve been a part of, from “Chocolate Sundaes” to “Loud Asians” and “Rainbow Pop”—it doesn’t matter if you’re a local or an out-of-towner, it’s impossible to NOT have a good time here.”

Quit Russian Me!

Bar Lubitsch

This backroom constantly exceeds the maximum capacity, but it’s totally worth the fire hazard. I’ve done a tight five—hell, I’ve even hopped on a cabaret. You name it! This underrated spot has no limits. It’s a solid place to grab a beer and some giggles.
