  • There's a lot more than just the Super Bowl going on this week. In fact, you could probably skip the big game altogether and just make it a week full of comedy shows. Here are some of the best we've found this week.
  • If you haven't yet stepped into the revamped Beachwood Cafe space, you're already missing out on something. Chef Minh Phan's balanced approach to her food, particularly with a rejuvenated seasonal dinner menu, is slowly working over the once-skeptical neighborhood.
  • It's certainly a cold one out there, folks. So if you're looking for an excuse to get in out of the weather (or an excuse to hear comedians stand on stage and complain about the weather themselves), consider one of these great shows happening all over town.
  • It's a new year, which means a whole new opportunity to get out and see fantastic free or cheap comedy in Los Angeles. Maybe you made it your New Years' resolution! If not, there's still time to jump on the bandwagon get fit using laugh muscles.
  • Losing a dog in a city the size of Los Angeles can certainly feel like a lonely proposition. There is too much ground to cover, too many shelters to follow up with, and too many major streets for a dog to cross. Thanks to a core group of friends, volunteers and total strangers, one man's campaign to find his dog has gone viral.
  • The holidays are here, which means lots of options to spend your money elsewhere. But really, what better gift to give yourself than laughter? Plus, with holiday pageants taking over the comedy scene this week, you can basically do both!
  • Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, there's a full week of great comedy going down all over Southern California. From Bill Burr in Brea to Holy F*ck's three-year anniversary party, there's a lot you won't want to miss.
  • Just because it's the week of Thanksgiving doesn't mean you shouldn't expect the very best from the L.A. comedy scene. Thankfully, it doesn't disappoint, with another round of Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, plenty of stand up, and improv based on your holiday horror stories.
  • The LA Comedy Festival continues this week, with plenty of great shows to go see. Of course, there are still plenty of fantastic shows going on all over town as well. Here we go!
  • It's the home stretch for political comedy shows, so there's an absolute glut of them this week (most being heavily Obama-favored). In fact, I'm not sure Republicans even laugh, let alone put on comedy shows.
