1) Comedy on Late Night TV Rundown: Eddie Izzard on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Marc Maron on Conan, and Rich Fulcher on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
2) Because we don’t have the time or budget to even go down to San Diego, check out Laugh Button’s guide to comedy at Comic-Con!!!
5) If you told someone there was a comedy show on a rooftop, most would correctly assume it would probably take place in NYC, but LA’s now has it’s own rooftop comedy show, “It’s A Long Way Down”, and here’s the proof.

10) Open mics are open mics and are open for experimentation with little pressure or expectation. However, I will tell you with certainty an experiment that fails every time is shitting on the comedian that you’re following, especially if the only thing they did was told jokes that weren’t funny.
