Dynasty Typewriter’s revitalization of the the Hayworth Theatre couldn’t have come at a better time: The 200-seat performance space absorbed many of the top-notch shows and talent that frequented the shuttered NerdMelt and the Steve Allen Theater. Now, it’s simply the alt comedy space to hit up in L.A., bringing a steady mix of up-and-comers and shockingly huge stars. Adam Sandler and Hannah Gadsby have mounted residencies here, Dan Harmon hosts his Harmontown podcast on Monday nights and Moses Storm occasionally brings along a Team Coco showcase.
Based on the stand-up comedy shows that happen in Los Angeles on any given night, it’s safe to say we’re the center of the comedy universe. The best comedy clubs in L.A. include Sunset Strip venues where you’ll catch well-known names and live podcast tapings, with spots as diverse as an old-school haunt in West Hollywood, a laid-back bar in Silver Lake and an intimate theater on the edge of Koreatown. Bring your sense of humor and prepare to laugh the night away at the best comedy clubs in L.A.
