The Comedy Store, Where Laughter is Always in Stock

July 02, 2017

When most folks hear “Hollywood,” they picture the classic stars of the silver screen, from Clark Gable, to Cary Grant, to Meryl Streep. Equally representative of the Hollywood glitterati are the many comedians who’ve gotten their start at West Hollywood’s own Comedy Store. Opened in 1972 in what was formerly the famed Ciro’s nightclub, The Comedy Store claims such hard-hitting funny men as David Letterman, Jim Carrey, Eddie Murphy, Dave Chapelle, and Louis CK among its many notable alumni. It also provided the setting for HBO’s acclaimed Young Comedians specials in the 80s and 90s. With three different stages featuring both up-and-coming and established talent seven nights a week, an evening at this historic venue is sure to make even the most dour sour puss crack a smile. So head on down, and enjoy some greasy pub fare and drinks that, like the laughter, flow well into the wee hours of the morning.
