Alt comedy – plus magic & music on Alt Saturday – which is to say 3 Day Weekend Sunday!

People ask us why we don’t move UnCab to Saturdays.

A few reasons…There is something so wonderfully perfect about Sunday for live shows. Especially for the offbeat delight of UnCabaret’s brilliant alt comedy. A vibe of depth, a secret pocket of fun, a freedom. Access to something that the noise of Saturday doesn’t allow.

Plus NO TRAFFIC on the way to the show! (Very easy to get to – Beverly to Temple to First if you are coming from West Hollywood 15 minutes).

But the price we pay is that Sunday is a work night so lots of people can’t come. Which means we gleefully look forward to three day weekends which this Sunday is! The best of Saturday and the best of Sunday all rolled into one! Which we love. Yes we heart three day weekends. Three Day weekends are our Valentine!

This 3 Day weekend – President’s Day – 3 delights – comedy, music and (don’t be scared Justin is really great) magic! Beth and Mitch welcome: Sam Pancake (Arrested Development) Justin Willman (Cupcake Wars), Miss Coco Peru (Trick), Kira Soltanovich (Tonight Show), and Del Shores (Sordid Lives).

Alt Comedy: Love How You Laugh

A gig at Steelcase… Love How You Work… made me re-examine how I work and remember that I love how we laugh at UnCabaret. Sunday 11/17, we convene our weekly cabal of the truly gifted artists of alt comedy. Two of our most prolific, Rebecca Corry and Jackie Kashian are joined by two newcomers, UK beatmaster Killa Kela (he has played with Prince!) and violinist Chris Woods, and the charmingly quirk filled Mary Lynn Rajskub (“24”) and master storyteller Carlos Kotkin (“Please God Let it Be Herpes”, The Moth).
