Spring Downtown for Alt Comedy 3/23

Yesterday was the first day of Spring!!! Yay. I really try to love winter but it’s hard. Even here in sunny Southern California. The light is less and there is an aura about winter.  There is a stuckness. In spring things start to move. Happen. One thing and then another. And so it makes sense that the first day of … Read More

Alt Comedy Plus Music Equals A Night to Go Out and Get Into 2/23

Beth Lapides enjoys Greg Behrendt so much that she asked him to be her sidekick when she had her radio show. It wasn’t long before he spun off to his own “Mantastic” show and then as the New York Times bestselling author of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” One thing we love about Greg is that whatever he’s into, … Read More

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).

Comedic Storytellers 2/09

Some of the best comedic storytellers will be in once special place this Sunday: at UnCabaret! You don’t want to miss this opportunity to see Alec Mapa (check him out in UnCabaret’s Episode One on amazon), John Riggi (Exec Producer of “30 Rock” & “Super Fun Night”), Lauren Weedman (HBO’s “Looking”), Greg Walloch (Howard Stern). All in the same night! We’re also thrilled to have and two musical guests from NYC! Jenn Harris (Joe’s Pub, Gayby) and Joseph Keckler (Village Voice’s Best Downtown Performance Artist) are both quite funny too!
