Friday, February 24th at 8pm- The Imaginary Radio Program
Drennon Davis is back with one of our favorite regular shows that is a creative and hilarious look at that old standby: the radio.You’ll see some of LA’s best comedians/musicians/performers as they parody all the ridiculous talk shows, commercials, and terrible music that infest the airwaves. The Comedy Bureau says of this show: it “not only lives up to its name, but exceeds expectation in what you could possibly think it is.”
Featuring Eli Braden, Howard Kremer (Dragon Boy Suede), MC Mr Napkins, Baron Vaughn, and Monique Moreau.

You’ll see brand new comics, comics you know and love trying out new material (Chris Hardwick and Kumail Nanjiani are frequent drop ins), and the magic that is live comedy.
Monday, February 27th at 8pm- Harmontown
People always ask us “What is Harmontown?”, and that’s a tough question to answer, but here’s the closest thing we’ve got: we gave the creator of Community a night to do whatever he wanted, and what we got was Harmontown.
Attend a town meeting in a land free of brevity, where Mayor Dan Harmon and Comptroller Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) take another small, vodka-soaked step toward colonizing the moon. Evening may include ineffectual rants, songs, shameful stories, special guests (Allison Brie, Donald Glover, and Gillian Jacobs have all stopped in), forehead sweat and repeated exposure to the phrases “like” , “uh”, “sort of” and “you know.”.
SOLD OUT! (But they will release a handful of tickets at the door)
Tuesday, February 28th at 8pm- Star Dreck
Kumail Nanjiani and Matt Mira are huge Trekkies, but even they have to admit that some of them just don’t hold up. Join them as they introduce you to some of the worst Star Trek episodes in existence, and then proceed to rip them to shreds. With the help of Kevin Pollak and a surprise guest, will they boldly go where no fan has gone before?
