I get to headline my favorite show twice a year .. you know it. Comedy Heights. The little show that could 🙂 Comedy Heights was started by Al Gavi and Gina Manning about 5 years ago as a twice monthly show next the coffee at Twiggs in University Heights, and when Gina moved to LA, she recommended me to Al and Al is super smart so he listened to Gina and brought me on as his new partner. We went weekly. Booked some amazing comics and tah dah! 2 years later it’s one of the best shows in town. I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish. And now I get to headline and play with some fabulous people I love to work with. Tony Calabrese is my feature … plus some of my UBER good friends Toni Torquato and Gene Levin who run their own show at the Space Bar in La Mesa once a week, and newcomer Danielle Marie Thomas. It’s going to be fun … hope you can join us!
The Irvine Improv is an amazing venue, so I hope some people will brave the wet and come out and get some laughs with me and headliner Tony Calabrese. Jim Taylor is a fantastic producer and funny comedian … so I expect it’ll be a FUN NIGHT. $5 at the door 🙂 Come by 700pm to get your food order in. It’s delish!
Some days I just wake up and pinch myself. I get to work with Drew Lynch and Taylor Tomlinson tonight? I’m old enough to be their mother! That’s probably why I’m so proud of how well they are doing in the stand up arena, both making it to the finals of America’s Got Talent and Last Comic Standing, respectively. Comedy isn’t all flailing drunks at a bar, and empty pizza joints on a Tuesday, sometimes it’s working with the best. And that’s the ‘sweetness’.
Great headliners and a ton of fun every Thursdays at the Comedy Palace! Join Matin Atrushi and me for laughs from 8pm. Doors open 7pm. Just text 619 993 3402 to get on the VIP list for FREE ENTRY!
We’ve had everyone on this show from Drew Lynch who made it to the Top 10 of America’s Got Talent… to Last Comic Standing’s Taylor Tomlinson and Dat Phan.
NBC’s Chuck Star Mark Christopher Lawrence is a regular, along with San Diego favorites Erik Knowles, Jesse Egan, Bijan Mostafavi, and the likes of Andrew Norelli who’s appeared on Jimmy Kimmel a bunch of times. Great Comics every week. 🙂
Drew Lynch is one talented young man. He hasn’t let his speech impediment stop him from being one of the funniest young comedians to watch today. In fact he used it to his advantage to bring laughs like I didn’t know I had in me! He has headlined Comedy Heights at Twiggs and will headline Thursdays at the Comedy Palace this coming week … don’t miss it.
I’m so proud to have been the first person to book this amazing young super star as a headliner, and we’re lucky enough to have her headline for our Thursday show at the Comedy Palace this week. When I mean superstar, I mean she’s competing on America’s biggest TV Comedy Competition and that’s all I can say about it right now. She’s touring the country and she’s only 21. We’re talking a lot of hard work and hilariously funny perspectives making this young lady the one to watch 🙂
The First Freakin’ Funny Female show at the Comedy Palace was a blast Feb 5. Jennifer Congernaum emceed the show which was packed with funny gals like Taylor Tomlinson, Janice White Remland, Jessica Muchow, Jennifer Purdie, Jessica Brustad and headliner Katsy Chappell. LOVED being in the company of these dolls! The next show is March 5th with headliner Anita Milner .. one of my favorites!!!
Reds Wine Bar has been sold and Friday Night Jan 30 will be our final night there for about a month as it undergoes a remodel. We are excited! Help us give Reds a proper ‘Good Bye’ at the last Comedy Heights show at Reds … as I said .. we will be back … but it won’t be ‘Reds’ anymore 🙂
Paul Ogata is probably Hawaii’s best export right after Macadamia Nuts. He’s a hit in Asia and Australia and is one of SOCAL’s funniest comedians hands down. Come and see me on his show at the Madhouse Comedy Club TONIGHT 7PM! Please let me me know if you want to get special VIP seating by 6pm at the very latest. I can’t wait!
