LAst Laugh: This Week in Comedy

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Big Dog star Charlie Sanders is all over town this week. Photo courtest FunnyOrDie.

This week is extra-special, because the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival kicks off on Thursday at the Downtown Independent. In addition, there's some great storytelling shows, and iO West is dedicating Sunday to the absolute madness that is sure to be the Wicked Awesome Show night.

If you're interested in getting in touch with this writer about listings, please shoot me an email here.
