Do This Today: Sleepaway Camp


I apologize for skipping the Do This Today, yesterday. I’m sure your St. Patrick’s Day was filled with activities and my blogging time was replaced with earthquakes, so I had to skip a day. That being said we have a fun Tuesday activity with the comedy show Sleepaway Camp. Tonight’s show features Dana Gould, Chelsea Peretti, John Roy, Solomon Georgio, Lindsay Ames, Grant Pardee, Brian Barlow, Johan Miranda, Miles K & Jesse Elias, Alison Stevenson and hosted by Doug Freedman and Austin Wolf-Sothern. That’s a lot of comedy! And it’s FREE! There’s a lot of cheap good comedy around LA tonight- so message me if you’re looking for more options or specific comedians. Tonight is a BIG comedy night!

Do This Today: Facebook at UCB

This improv show is amazing. I went back when it was the Myspace show and loved it. Now it’s the Facebook show and stars Rob Hubel, Seth Morris, Chad Carter, Paul Scheer, and Own Burke. These guys are hilarious and such great improvisers. They bring an audience member on stage and look at their facebook page on a big screen. Then they do a series of improvs based on the information and stories that the person shares on their facebook page. It’s always a different show so you can go every week and expect all new comedy.

Event: Facebook at UCB (event website)
Location: UCB, 5919 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles CA
Time: Wednesday March 5, 2014, 9:30 – 11pm
Cost: $5
FYI: This show is technically sold out for tonight, but UCB packs people in and has a waiting list. If you show up and put your name on the list, they will find a way to get you in.
