No joke, a car crashed into one of Hollywood's improv comedy clubs today at 4:33 p.m. iO West Theater (you know, as in Improv Olympic) at the corner of Hollywood and Cosmo was the victim.

Luckily, no one was hurt says the LA Fire Department and a witness on scene said the driver was drunk (isn't it a little early to be drinking and then driving? Shouldn't you still be drinking at this hour?). Paramedics left the scene with no one to transport less than a half hour after arriving and now city Building & Safety engineers are checking the structural integrity.

According to LAist tipster, Zachariah Huddleston, "all shows are canceled for tonight (including the hotly anticipated Improvised Tennessee Williams performance)."
