LAst Laugh: This Week in Comedy

Welp, it's that weird week between Christmas and New Years. Thankfully we live in LA, so there's always something going on, but to be honest the scene is pretty quiet this week. As a result, we're only recommending one show a night, instead of the usual two. Hope you fine folks survive, and if you've got a show coming up you're looking to get some love for, hit me up.
Happy New Year!
