Is this the week for comedy or what?! Last nights show was awesome and you should expect a full recap on Comedy Wednesday. Tonight hit up The Satellite for a night of comedy! @Dadboner by Karl Welzein & Friends will be filled with guests (specifically Patton Oswalt, Rob Delaney, Matt Braunger, Kyle Kinane, Jenny Johnson and more) for only $10! What a deal! It looks like the ticket site is having issues, but I imagine you can pay at the door and get in.
Tonight Loud Village takes over the Improv! Rob Delaney, Morgan Murphy, Greg Fitzsimmons, Jake Weisman, Wes Hudson and more will take the stage with Karl Hess hosting. To come for FREE, go to their facebook invite HERE and leave your name and number of people in your party and you’ll be on the list.
Event: Loud Village (facebook invite)
Location: Hollywood Improv, 8162 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA
Time: Thursday March 21 2013, 8-10pm
Cost: FREE (if you RSVP on the facebook page)
As it’s Tuesday, this would normally be Doug Loves Movies/ Comedy Bang Bang night at UCB. Doug Loves Movies is still happening at 7pm tonight (always free, so get in line early to get a seat) but Comedy Bang Bang has retired. In it’s place is “Put Your Hands Together” produced by A Special Records and hosted by Cameron Esposito. This is sold out, but they are good about fitting people in who are on the waiting list. Get there for DLM and get your name on the standby list for this show. Why not also put your name on the standby list for Before You Were Funny with Rob Delaney, Matt Walsh, and Casey Wilson. To see these three shows it’ll only cost you $10! Do it!
I’ve been in exercise mode to get ready for Denver’s 2012 Turkey Trot, where I will be running on Thanksgiving morning. Unfortunately, this means I am extremely sore and I haven’t gotten to go on any adventures beyond the edge of the treadmill. Hopefully this translates into a kickass running time. While I am on my running kick, that doesn’t mean you should be indoors on these lovely fall nights.
Now I know it’s not the weekend yet (so close!), but I thought I would tell you about some events happening this week. TONIGHT, Wednesday at 7pm, the Moca is doing a cocktail reception for the opening of their Shadow Pool exhibit at the Hollywood Forever Masonic Lodge on Santa Monica Blvd. The exhibit Shadow Pool: A Natural History of the San San International is a mix of a fashion show, sculpture display, live music and more showcasing Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe‘s work. It’s worth checking out! If art isn’t your scene, check out Bigfoot Lodge‘s Trivia Night tonight at 9pm. If a 9pm starting time is too late for you, The Fox and the Hound bar in Studio City (on Ventura) has an 8pm Trivia Night tonight.
TOMORROW, Thursday at 7pm Michael Gross is doing a reading and signing of his new book Unreal Eestate: Money Ambition and the Lust for Land in Los Angeles at Book Soup. I have not read any of his books, but as a real estate enthusiast I hear about his work all the time. One of my favorite blogs on this topic is “The Real Estalker” and the writer of that site wrote a great description of the book HERE. If you are interested in high-end real estate and the behind the scenes info, read this book! I’m dropping it onto my amazon wish-list as we speak, and if you can’t make the signing order the book HERE.
The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in LA is offering two shows at 8pm on Thursday for only $5: This Sh*ts for Real and Scott Rodgers: Care Bear Stare. So if you want a cheap night filled with intimate comedy, get tickets to this show (HERE) and see Paul Scheer, Rob Delaney, Jackie Clark, Danielle Schneider, Scott Rogers, and the musical stylings of Michael Cassady (Don’t Stop Or We’ll Die). All of those awesome well known comedians or $5! Such a good deal.
Reminder: The AFI Film Festival is still going on, so if you have a free night, you should check the schedule HERE and enjoy! And get ready for Friday 11-11-11!
