UnCabaret is thrilled to have “The Glasgow Comedy Queen” (The List) Janey Godley this Sunday!
Janey is a multi-award-winning Scottish comedienne, playwright, blogger, columnist, a regular on BBC Radio 4′s Just a Minute. and a best-selling author! She is an international sensation and we are excited to have her making her UnCab debut. Also the UnCab debut of Christopher Evan Welch who is in town filming the new Mike Judge HBO show.
Plus… always thrilled to see Karen Kilgariff and Nicol Paone, whose recent one-woman show The Last Show I Do Before I Go On Medication took place on a tour bus on a month of Saturdays and was a sold-out smash hit.
Hit me with a pretty stick!
Of course comedy is never pretty – although sometimes the people who practice it are:) And that is def the case this week. But music is often pretty and this Sunday we welcome some of the prettiest music ever! Sweet, pretty voices and those honey harmonies.
Many of you will have heard conniekim who hangs in the Sam Pancake, Drew Droege posse.
Mitch and Beth met Powdercoat‘s Kristin Mooney during production on “100% Happy 88% of The Time” on which she lent her insanely beautiful voice. Take a listen. You’ll be pretty amazed and you WILL want to come see them live.
Our surprise special guest is a knockout in the comedy circuit. Plus we have Rebecca Corry, Caitlin Bergh in her UnCab debut and Kyle Dunnigan, who’s pretty damn lucky to be the only dude amongst these beauties! He’s pretty cute, too!

OK Columbus did not discover America. And what happened after he rediscovered it is still being repaired. Neverthless discovery itself is what makes life worth living and there is something about Fall that makes this a good time to celebrate that. Even if what we discover is that Columbus didn’t discover America.
So this Columbus Day weekend, some of our favorite alt comedy explorers will share stories of their journeys and discoveries. Ben Gleib, Kira Soltanovich and Jackie Kashian have landed on our shores before and regaled us with their unique comic treasures. We also have some of our own new discoveries: Greg Walloch and singers Sarah Stanley and Tammy Fay Starlite/Nico! Drop anchor on the shores of UnCabaret and discover a new world of comedy and music with a rich history — you’ll want to return to again and again.
There is so much that we are on the verge of discovering. If we can just put our guns away and play nice for a bit. Vast dimensional shifts, new arenas of human potential. Not to mention the theory of everything! At UnCabaret we continue to discover the best of the alt comedy comedy performers and mix them with music magic, stories so that every Sunday you can discover you are pretty glad to be a human on earth.
PS if you are not familiar with First and Hope it’s quite easy to discover. It’s downtown – but just. Across from The Music Center. 710 W 1st Street. LA 90012Learn More
