Time Out says

The address has changed and the dinner menu has gone (it's now snacks only), but the performers remain the same at LA's home for cultured, bankable singer-songwriters and brilliant comedians, relocated to a '40s theatre. The likes of Aimee Mann, John Doe, Jill Sobule and perennial hot-ticket artist-in-residence Jon Brion ply their trade in the 280-seat theater. But most nights, Largo rounds up a consistently stellar stable of comedy talent, from showcases hosted by Patton Oswalt, Nick Kroll and Sarah Silverman to the occasional transcendent set by the likes of Tig Notaro.

What’s on

John C. Reilly

John C. Reilly’s built up an impressive resume of serious acting gigs, in particular as a frequent collaborator of director Paul Thomas Anderson, but comedy fans will instantly recall his turns with “Did we just become best friends?” buddy Will Ferrell in Talladega Nights and Step Brothers. When he’s not busy on the screem, Reilly performs his own folk and country songs at Largo.

Ben Schwartz

  • Improv

One of the most talented improv performers, period, see Schwartz (perhaps best known as Parks and Rec’s Jean Ralphio and now as the voice of Sonic) and a surprise assembly of friends take to the stage.

‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’ live read

Ed Wood’s tale of an alien invasion in the Valley is bad—so bad that the 1955 B-movie has of course inspired its own cult following. Just in time for Halloween, you can catch a bunch of comedians perform a live read of the awful classic, including Matt Braunger, Bobcat Goldthwait, Dana Gould, Laraine Newman, Jonah Ray, Paul F. Tompkins, Janet Varney and Rob Zabrecky.

The Improvised Shakespeare Company

The actors speak in faux British accents, employ Elizabethan-era speech and play up any number of Shakespearean tropes, yet this hugely popular Chicago-born show is anything but gimmicky. Good improv rises above.
