Join Us at our Next Standup Comedy Show

Headliner:  Danny Villalpando

Serving Up Comedy

The purpose of Serving Up Comedy is chiefly to provide a standup comedy venue in the Westside of L.A., featuring a new lineup each week, followed by open mic. Laughter is essential. It is healthy. Laughter asks you to lower your inhibitions and invite the person on stage into your life and you make a connection. There is a degree of intimacy. You have shared something personal. You have laughed with those around you, feeling that communal sense, where we’re all in this together. We’re on board for the laughs.

On that very note -- we’re all in this together -- I hope to motivate the audience, whose spirits have been lifted by laughter, to want to lift the spirits of others by contributing, even just a little, to the specific cause featured that month: providing for veterans, clothing the homeless, feeding the hungry, rescuing animals, and more.

I don’t want people in the audience to feel they have to contribute. I want people to come week after week and enjoy a comedy show -- free of admission, no two-item minimum – whether they are having a bad day and need a laugh or they’re having a great day and want to keep the momentum going, just come and have a good time. And on your own, if you choose, for whatever personal reason you have, to drop a little in the “Suggested Donation Only” jar, you do so with our genuine gratitude and the knowledge that all contributions go directly to the cause and nothing else and you are a part of that. After all, we’re all in this together.

Venue at The Warehouse

The main show starts at 7pm while you can get those last-minute Happy Hour drink and appetizer orders in before ordering dinner, which is served in the lounge as well. The show opens with an emcee, and a lineup of 3 comedians, followed by a featured performer and a headliner. Headliners have been featured all over L.A. and the nation and have been seen on shows like Late Night, The Tonight Show, Conan, BET, Kimmel, Ferguson, Comics Unleashed, Last Comic Standing and more.

The show ends around 8:30 and is immediately followed by open mic, featuring aspiring comedians trying out new material. Open mic lasts for up to an hour. You are certainly encouraged to stay for the extra laughs, as The Warehouse stays open till 10pm.

Comedy at The Warehouse

L.G. Ross has been producing weekly comedy shows at The Warehouse since November of 2009. Before the venue was known as Comics on the Spot and started on Tuesdays at 8pm before moving to Mondays about 3 years later.

Since its inception, the venue underwent slight changes, adding open mic at 7pm and moving the main show to 7:45. It remained on Mondays till the summer of 2016, when Comics on the Spot was dissolved and Serving Up Comedy succeeded that venue, debuting Thursday, July 14th.

The main show now takes place at 7pm, followed by open mic.

Open Mic at The Warehouse

Open mic at The Warehouse begins right after the main show ends, between 8:20 and 8:30pm. Signup begins at 6:15pm when L.G. shows up with the signup sheet. It’s first-come-first-choose-spot and we take as many as 10 comedians.

Talent gets 5 minutes stage time, the light at 4. You must be relatively clean. This is a family restaurant. Certainly, do not drop the F bomb. To do so may mean being barred from all future open mics and bookings of main show at The Warehouse.

Workshop

OPEN MIC / WORKSHOP AT THE SPOT CAFE

L.G. Ross has been hosting an open mic / workshop at The Spot Café at 4455 Overland Ave., Culver City, CA, since January, 2009. Signup is 12:30, start time 1pm. Lineup done by lottery.

Admission is $3 or $5 purchase from the café. They make great paninis and other delicious food items. In return you get 5 minutes on stage with up to 3 more in feedback or 6 minutes on stage and no feedback. You get the light a minute before time is up.

No language restrictions. If you think it’s funny, we want to hear it. If you are a clean comedian, we want to hear you. Whether you’re new to standup or a veteran of comedy, if you have new material and want to test the waters, we are a supportive and positive room and want you to share the laughs with us.

Also, on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month I hold auditions at the workshop for comedians who want to do the main show at The Warehouse Lounge. Auditions are ten minutes each, no use of notes. We want to see the very act you’d do if we booked you.

The laughs are there. All you have to do is time your joke right before the next wave of laughter.
