The LA Comedy Festival starts this week, and there's a bunch of great stuff to get out and see. Elsewhere, Tremendosaur has a couple of shows lined up, and The Apple Sisters are back!


MONDAY 4/16

The Apple Sisters, 8p Elephant Theater. The lovely 1940’s radio sisters are back with a new sketch show that promises to be as wholesome as the apple pie from American Reunion.

Crash Test, 11p UCB. Chelsea Peretti is sitting in as host for Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer, for a night that promises to bring stand up and sketch and plenty of laughs.

Rob Schneider, 8p Comedy & Magic Club. Everyone’s favorite friend of Adam Sandler is doing one show out by the water.


WEDNESDAY 4/18

Where Eagles Dare, 8p Little Modern Theater. As they continue to pump out comedy from the new Little Modern, you can add Where Eagles Dare to the roster. This week’s line up features Tremendosaur and some great improv.

Before You Were Funny, 10:30p Hollywood Improv Lab. Tremendosaur brings up Betsy Sodaro, Brian Huskey and Johnny Pemberton for a reenactment of the worst sketches they ever wrote.
