Those in the know would likely point to the 80’s as the zenith of stand-up comedy. It was the time when its legitimacy was established as an art form. For several years following that crazy decade, stand-up comedy lay in wait for resurgence. Recently, the scene has blossomed, with Las Vegas at the forefront, providing venues like the legendary L.A. Comedy Club at Stratosphere Hotel & Casino, where stars, both young and old, continue to hone their craft.
The L.A. Comedy Club of Las Vegas has ensured that stand-up has a home since 2007 (at Stratosphere since 2015). The 160-seat Dragon Room in the Stratosphere was specifically designed for stand-up comedy, in fact. The space is important; the feel, the ambiance, the intimacy – it all plays a part with the experience of both the comedian and audience.
Each week brings a different live comedy event where national headlining comedians stretch their comedic wings to provide the audience with a unique quality experience that’s both hilarious and relevant. The LA. Comedy Club has also rolled out an early show. Who doesn't love a good happy hour, let alone a comedy happy hour? Lisa Landry is the resident headliner for the Happy Hour Comedy Show. Landry has appeared on Comedy Central, CMT, CBS' "Late Late Show", and International award-winning magician, MonDre, also performs in the show.
Over the years, The L.A. Comedy Club has won several awards, and has even earned the reputation of being the younger rebel brother of The Improv. L.A. Comedy Club was the first comedy club to bring breakout comics such as Aziz Anazari, Felipe Esparsa, Loni Love, and many others, to Las Vegas.
The L.A. Comedy Club is open nightly, with shows at 8 p.m. There is an additional show at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The Happy Hour show is performed Friday through Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Tickets start at $39.95, plus tax and fee.
