This Thursday, it will have been a year since Peacock started prancing around Club Tee Gee over in the lovely part of LA known as Atwater Village. In that time, it has quickly grown into a neatly packed and produced, tight stand-up show that has become a neighborhood (and LA) favorite on Thursday nights. Going for an entire year, especially when you’re maintaining a high quality show every week is incredibly difficult and deserves a nod of admiration (in person at this week’s show preferably)
So, join host Kiran Deol and a very, very special, extra stacked line-up all for the always nice price of a $5 suggested donation to celebrate Peacock’s One Year Anniversary.
Please Get Atsuko Okatsuka’s Delightful Debut Album “but i control me”
Not only does Atsuko Okatsuka have a bottomless well of charm on stage, but there’s a self-awareness about her charm and her whole persona/being that ends up being even more charming somehow.
Atsuko has a fascinating story of coming to America, some of which finds its way on this debut album, but i control me, making for a very intriguing listen for that alone. Also, she has very, very clever observations through her unique Asian-American immigrant lens, nimbly told with an undeniably fun delivery.
Undoubtedly, this debut album is a very good sign of what’s to come (even after Okatsuka already has very enjoyable body of work)
The backroom of the Blue Rooster Art Supplies was poised to be the heir apparent to Nerdmelt @ Meltdown. Alas, such a fate was not to come to pass as construction and expansion will prohibit the space from being a live venue.
However, before they go, they’re throwing a big farewell this Saturday in the form of an all female comedy marathon featuring 30 of LA’s best female comedians telling one joke. Signature Drink, another Blue Rooster show alum, and its hosts Courtney Karwal and Megan Gailey will be presiding over what should be quite the swan song.
Seriously, this would be a show that you shouldn’t miss without the whole prospect of a venue closing. As this is a living wake of sorts, it’s even more imperative that you enjoy yourself at a damn fine stand-up show.
Best get your tickets here quick.
It’s pretty clear as far as we can see: many of the best comedians in town will gather for an all female June every Friday at Sauce @ DeSano Pizza for the cleverly coined Pizza Coven.
Just like at that exquisite line-up that includes many of our personal favorites, folks who have been killing it on TV for years, legitimate nationally touring headliners, and more over the next four weeks and you’ll know that your Fridays should be spent at one of the best pizza joints in LA.
So, reserve your tickets here for a Pizza Coven already.
Atsuko Okatsuka (whose name we hope you’ve gotten acquainted with via Vulture’s Comedians You Should and Will Know list, her killing it on stages around town, and her recently announced development of her “woke Japanese game show” Let’s Go Atsuko) is recording a comedy album in town at Dynasty Typewriter at the end of the month.
Atsuko is definitely one of the comedians we’ve enjoyed see rise through the scene here over the years with her sharp observations, unique perspective, infectious charm.
The Las Culturistas podcast is coming back to LA for an early holiday gift! It’s another edition of I Don’t Think So, Honey! Live at The Regent Theater in DTLA. Dozens of LA’s best at throwing shade will get to put up a minute of their best rants on anything in culture. It’s honestly kind of a life changing experience.
In short, you better not miss this.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $22 at the door and you best snag your tickets up quick right here.

Not only will this be a night of comedy starring the delightful Atsuko Okatsuka, it’ll also be done up like a “Japanese game show”.
Her guests include Rhea Butcher, Actress Ally Maki (TBS’s Wrecked), Kevin Yee (SF Sketchfest), Marlena Rodriguez (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Jibz Cameron (Hammer Museum, MOCA).
You’ve probably seen Japanese game shows as dubbed or remade by Americans. Now, you can see a real one as done by a Japanese-American comedian (that’s also woke).
So, with that in mind, you should get your tickets here.
