Hollywood Comedy Fest: 3 nights of nyuk-nyuk-nyuk PLUS ticket giveaway!

Radioactive hills with frogs

You may know the sketch comedy group Frog Island for their online videos How to Pick Up Prostitutes and Elmo’s World – Behind the Scenes (Spoiler alert: diva Elmo threatens to “cut” Elmo’s World‘s  hapless clapper loader.  Clearly, nothing is sacred with this bunch.)   Now,  the group’s unholy creative triumvirate is complete with their newest endeavor: The First Annual Hollywood Comedy Fest.

Hilarity will ensue on Thursday (and continue through Saturday) as twenty-four of  “the world’s funniest stand up comics compete for cash, prizes, and accolades” over three nights at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club at Universal Citywalk.  (As Universal insider-in-the-know Cat Sweeney sez, the club is “upstairs above that water shooting patio thingie & Tony Roma’s Ribs.”  And no, Go Go’ers, Cat will not be on stage that night although clearly she should be….)

Despite the shooting water and the frogs, there is no amphibian theme for the fest, just lots of comedic mayhem as the stand-ups duke it out to be chosen as Judges’ Pick Winners, Audience’s Pick Winners, the Best of the Fest Winner, and other prizes.   Committed to stalking following your comedian’s meteoric rise?  Attend Sunday’s Awards Ceremony at Skinny’s Lounge in NoHo.

At the fest itself, the three-story Jon Lovitz Comedy Club has first come, first served tables on Levels Two and Three.  Level One is SRO so if you want to sit (For better exercising of funny bone, natch.) as well as dine and drink, you should aim to get there by 7:15 to snag a spot.

Let the comedy/appetizer/frog fest begin!

Ready?  U Know U Want 2 Go Go….

NOTE: Ms. Go Go has two pairs of tickets to give away for the Friday, August 27th show.  First two responders gets ’em!
