2) Two open mics came to an end yesterday. iCandy in Long Beach, formerly known as the Coffee Haven, is shutting its doors entirely after running for over 8 years, while the LA Pizza Comedy Experience in Granada Hills also will be no more after running for over 3 years. Change up your Tuesdays and Fridays as necessary if you’re looking for stage time.
3) Tickets for Paul F. Tompkins 1-hour Comedy Central Special Taping will be on sale this Monday. I know a lot of you who follow us are cheap, but this might be something you want to pay for.
