4/26 Alt Comedy Los Angeles: Andy Dick, Kelly Mantle and more!


Sunday April 26

As per our usual unusual…. This Sunday UnCabaret is dishing up the best in alt comedy Los Angeles.

Andy Dick bright and shiny, returns with stories from shooting Zoolander with Ben Stiller in Italy!

Erin Foley (Conan) is one of the funniest, warmest, easiest to watch comedians working today.

Megan Koester (Vice, Curbed) was one of LA Weekly’s 10 Comedians to Watch in 2015

Greg Walloch‘s sly storytelling style put him on the air at both Howard Stern and The Moth Radio Hour.

Yes! Kelly Mantle is the nephew of Mickey Mantle! Yes Kelly mantle was on RuPaul’s Drag Race!

Raspin has the word spin in it and Starbucks spins his music!

But it’s not just who is on at UnCabaret it’s what they do when they are on. And Being On is part of it.


Shows are at 8 on Sundays

hi guys. Sometimes I think about closing UnCabaret because how many times and in how many different ways can I say hey IT’S A REALLY GREAT LINEUP ON SUNDAY! And then I think about what a great line up it is and how the energies that are the people in the poster will magically come together to create a particular one time only energy with the crowd and how that live experience FEELS SO GOOD. I think about the words, the laughs, the music, the hugs, the excellence, the creative juice, the light and then – as much as I don’t love promoting and figuring out how else to communicate that THIS WEEK IS SPECIAL – I do it. Because that is how much I love the Sunday night part of it. So tomorrow I will tell you why each of these people is beloved. For now let me assure you that if you get your tickets IN ADVANCE  you will get to look forward to the show for days, and the anticipation of laughing doubles the health benefits of laughing, which are many. Plus of course the relaxing feeling of knowing you can stay home on Saturday night if  you want to, because you will be going out on Sunday night.

come for the comedy stay for the hugs. xo Beth
