Had a nice night out at the Comedy Store. The comedians varied in their humor and the quick turn-around for each one ensured that if you didn't like one, you had the chance to listen to another person. We were there for the 8:00pm show and had no cover, just a 2 drink minimum per person.

Had a great laugh although beware language is blue and don't make the mistake that we did and allow the hostess to seat you right at the front and become 'involved' in the comedy. My husband ended up on stage with the comedians

we went on sunday 14th august and arrived before nine o'clock so it was free entry with two drink minimum.

it started with open mike, then comedy store friends and family and ended with pop ins.

we were there about 2 hours and saw quite a few comedians - some first timers, some more experienced and some pop ins.

a few of the comedians were very good, most ok and some were poor .

however the worst thing about the night was the host/compare (tony something?). he wasn't funny at all and he totally lost the connection with the crowd. he openly criticised up and coming comedians after their first set on stage and anyone popular he tried to ridicule.

he shouted at the crowd for talking only to realise that it was the director of talent talking at the back. he then told us what a terrible crowd we were for not laughing at his material.

he should realise that the hosts job is to warm up the crowd, support comedians and to keep the momentum going not ruin it.

a few comedians absolutely stormed it and had the audience howling and rocking in their seats so it obviously wasn't the crowd.

dreadful and a real shame because it spoilt the night!

I can't believe we wasted a limo ride and a trip to the city on this place. They are clearly living of their legacy. There is a time to to pull the curtain and close the show and I'm thinking that day is long since past. No class whatsoever. Wait staff could not remember orders even though they were typing it into a handheld computer, allways "forgot" to give change and it took 45 min to get a bottled beer after reminding them twice. The comedians were ok at best and downright mean spirited towrds the audience. Don't wast your time folks there is so much more to see in Hollywood than this dive.

The Sunset Strip is known for music, but The Comedy Store is a must-do stop if you want to complete experience. Unlike other comedy clubs, the night has a number of comedians doing short sets, so you can arrive and leave any time from 9 pm -2 am, you don't have to stay for the whole show (but you should). The drinks are expensive and there is a 2 drink minimum, but they're actually below average for LA comedy clubs and any of the bars on the Strip

A few tips - Parking is expensive, just like all over the strip. There are some municipal lots nearby that are cheaper or take a taxi.
You can get free entry any night of the week with coupons available on the Comedy Store Facebook page
