With the wrap up of the LA Improv Festival at iO West, you'd think that things would be all quiet on the comedy front this week. But thankfully that's just not the case, with the opening of this year's Secret Policeman's Ball / Film Festival showing us some of the great classics in UK comedy. There's also a ton of good improv and sketch all over town, including the start of Ultimate X-ecution and Comedy Death Ray having Bob Odenkirk. Get out, get laffy. As per usual, if you want to see yourself or someone you love on this list, give Farley a holler.

MONDAY 06/08

Benson Interruption, 8p Largo. Doug does what it does, which is to make comics feel uncomfortable, make fun of them, and generally keep the audience rolling.

Ultimate X-ecution, 8p iO West. The search for ‘the best improviser in the city’ starts at iO West and Ultimate Improv on the Westside. If you’re into comedy, American Idol, and somewhat arbitrary challenges, this is the show for you.
