Hollywood Improv

The flagship Improv on Melrose is one of the most legendary clubs in Los Angeles, as well as all of America. It’s not just a club. It's a scene. On any given night you can walk in to see one of your favorite comics from TV sitting at the bar, and the main room acts are never a letdown. Comedians such as Dane Cook, Louis CK, and Steve Byrne have all been known to make appearances. You know when you go to see a comic perform at the Improv, they're bringing their A-game and delivering the goods. But come early as seats fill up fast.

Next door, at the Lab, you are privy to some of the finest up-and-coming talent in the industry. The shows are an eclectic mix of experimental and independently produced, often boasting appearances by well known and respected comedians. Did we mention that it's dirt cheap? Shows there are typically around the $5 price range.

Great space to watch comedy! It's a small setting which makes it feel more personable with the comedians. The place has food and a full bar and wait staff to serve you during the show. Don't be afraid to sit along the side of the stage, those are honestly the best seats in the house!

A must-see in LA. Comedy acts are always funny (some better than others) and it's a great activity for visitors. There is usually a 2-item minimum to purchase while you are watching the show.
