I love this place! The Comedy Store is one of the funniest places in the world!
It’s the first stand-up comedy nightclub in the world. Literally. Founded April 7, 1972, on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood by comedian Sammy Shore, his wife Mitzi and comedy writer Rudy DeLuca.
It started because Sammy needed a place to work out when he wasn’t on the road. Sammy was the longtime opening act for Elvis Pressley.
In the decades since then, every comedy star in the world has performed here. You’ve probably been lucky enough to see some of the best in the same room as you.
Today the Comedy Store wants to keep making us laugh, but they’re facing the realities of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The official statement:
Dear Comedy Store Customers —
