Largo is simply a juggernaut this week with comedy (not to mention their Chuck Pahlaniuk speaking engagement on Tuesday). They've got some of the best stand up you'll find this week, and that includes Comedy is Dead being back at Hollywood Forever. Let's keep it short & sweet this week: hit me up to get listed, and get out to see shows! UPDATE: That hipster mime (named Django) has a website!

MONDAY 5/17

O.C. Comedy Competition, 8p Irvine Improv. This OC-centric stand up competition should bring some great exposure to some very deserving folks who may be underserved down there in the red county of Orange.

Todd Barry & Friends, 9p Largo. Tom, Al Madrigal, and Tig Notaro drop by for some great stories and stand up at Largo.

TUESDAY 5/18

TNT, 8p Sierra Stage. This improv showcase show runs all night and always brings the funnypain. This week features the debut of Mahogany, starring some serious improv badasses.

iO Harold Competition, 8p iO West. Local 132 v. Hot Toddy in the second round of the iO West Harold Competition. Awesome.
