To Do: Go to Hell

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We know where we're going this Saturday—straight to Hell! And we couldn't be more excited. Every Saturday from now through Halloween, the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood presents "Hollywood Hell House."

Hell Houses have become a staple of the Halloween season for Christian kids across the country over the last few years, and now LA has one of its very own. Of course, ours is full of snarky comedians like Bill Maher, Sarah Silverman, Andy Richter and David Cross, but they'll be using actual scripts and instructions purchased directly from the Abundant Life Christian Center, which has staged thousands of Hell Houses across the country and which, we assume, has saved countless souls from eternal damnation. Could yours be next?

If all you fornicators, ravers, school shooters and gang rapists know what's good for you, you'll come to "Hollywood Hell House." The cast rotates, so you never know who'll be playing the role of Abortion Girl or Satan when you show up. And make sure you get there early—not only is tardiness a sin, but there are no advance ticket sales or reservations. Tours start at 8:00 PM and run until 10:00 PM, and tickets are a saintly $10.00.
