Hosting Comedy Walk this Thursday

25 different comedy acts. 6 downtown Los Angeles venues.

That’s right, six 90-minute comedy shows running at the same time.

This Thursday, July 10th, 8:30-10:00 PM, I will be hosting one of the six different rooms that will be chock full of a rotating roster of stand-up comics in this month’s Comedy Walk.

I will be in The Chicken Room (yes, yes, I know), Spring Arts Tower, 211 W. 5th Street, Los Angeles 90013 [Google Maps]. I’ll be starting things at 8:25 on the dot!

Comics on my stage will be Jason Dudey, Josh Rencher, Jackie Fabulous Champagnie, Roz Browne, Bruno Lucia, Tim Powers, Julia Louiza, Joe Bartnick and Larry Vazeos. (That’s a whole lotta links!)

Stop by… It’s FREE!
