Well, it's officially LA Improv Festival time at iO West, which naturally makes it the premiere spot for comedy this week. There's sketch and improv tournaments, big name shows with big name stars, and plenty of $5 shows to keep the masses happy. That being said, The Birthday Boys and A Kiss From Daddy are extending their residency at UCB, Comedy Death Ray is extending it's stranglehold across all of LA, and Jay Leno is around for the first time since giving up his seat to Conan tonight.
