The comedy is back in full swing this week around LA, with an incredible show to see every night (if you're so inclined). From sketch to stand up to improv to theatre, it's all represented and it's all great this week. Thanks to everyone tagging their Flickr photos with 'lastlaugh', you're really helping to make this comedy round-up great! And be sure to add any shows you think we missed in the comments.
