Not gonna lie folks - it's been hot out there. Like 'I'm wearing a tin suit in the middle of the day in Hollywood' hot. If you haven't already noticed, we're in the absolute throes of summer, meaning we need all the excuses we can get to beat the heat. This week, it's comedy; with a stellar line-up of stand up shows happing from Fullerton to Pasadena and down past Hollywood, there's no better way to enjoy the scorching evening than to sit with some friends in in air-conditioned room and laugh it up. Check the listing below for just where to do that this week. And, as always, email me if you'd like to get a show considered here.


C-Word, 7p Comedy Store Belly Room. Iliza Shlesinger, Staci Lawrence, and Jodi Miller run this weekly stand up showcase show.

Melgard Mondays, 8:30p Melgard Public House. This week the Elliot Steingart’s Melgard Mondays might have the upper hand when it comes to Monday night stand up in LA. TJ Miller, Kyle Kinane, Eddie Pepitone, and Nick Rutherford join others for a full night of comedy.

Cook County Social Club, 7p iO West. These longtime Chicago improvisers are doing three shows in three days at iO West, but this is the last one. So if you’re reading this today (Tuesday), you’d better build a time machine or make it out to iO West at 7pm. Those are your ONLY two options.

Cletus T. Judd, 8p Irvine Improv. Guys, Cletus T. Judd! The country version of Weird Al! From the '90's!
