The top 10: Comedy clubs around the world
1. THE COMEDY STORE, LOS ANGELES
Co-founded in 1972 by Mitzi Shore, this club on LA’s infamous Sunset Strip has hosted an array of comedians who became stars, including David Letterman, Roseanne Barr, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams and Whoopi Goldberg. It’s still a great place to spot both established and upcoming comics. The entry fee gets you a long bill of performers, each doing a snappy set, so there is plenty of bang for your buck (even considering the long-standing compulsory “two drink minimum”). There is a second outlet down the coast at La Jolla. See thecomedystore.com
2. UPRIGHT CITIZENS BRIGADE THEATRE, NEW YORK
This comedy venue in the Chelsea district has a rolling calendar of improvisational and sketch comedy sessions. You’re likely to spot stars and writers from such renowned TV sketch shows as Saturday Night Live on stage here. For improv fun, attend the weekly Cage Match series on Thursday nights. There is another UCBT branch in the East Village, and two more in LA. See ucbtheatre.com || Read more
