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.

There's a bunch of great benefit shows all over the land this week, so now's your chance to be philanthropical and giggly at the same time. There's also some big names on the horizon, with Russell Brand, Janeane Garofalo, and Elephant Larry all putting up some limited engagements around town. Combine that with regular show stalwarts like Harold Night at UCB, Worst Laid Plans, and the opening of the LA Comedy Festival AND the iO West Harold Competition, and there's no reason not to see something this week.

As always, let me know if you've got a show you'd like to promote, and we'll try to get it up.

Upstate v. USS Rock N’ Roll, 9p iO West. The annual Harold Competition is upon us again. Actually, it started on Monday, but this is the first really great (and tough) matchup. Go support!

Russell Brand, 11p UCB. A not-so-secret drop in by Brand on Tuesday night means you better get to the theater early to stand in line.
