The Comedy Store 16 Headliners

Comedians call it the hardest room in the country and audiences call it the best. 16 national headliners, back to back, from the cute and cuddly to the down and dirty, with everything in between. Our Original Room stage has been home to such greats as David Letterman, Jay Leno, Andy Kaufman, Jim Carrey, Sam Kinison, Roseanne Barr, and Pauly Shore. The OR now plays host to the hottest stars of today. You know those guys you see on TV...Chris D'Elia and Whitney Cummings of Whitney; Steve Rannazzisi and Nick Kroll of The League; The Daily Show correspondent Al Madrigal; and regular Chelsea Lately panelists John Caparulo, Bobby Lee, Natasha Leggero, and Dov Davidoff. This is where they come to flex their stand-up muscles alongside the young talent you'll see making a splash any day now.

Not to mention the legendary late night. In a tradition started by Sam Kinison, late night is when we let our hair down. Led by late night legends like Don Barris and Sam Tripoli, the comedians get raw and real, connecting with the crowd like no other show does in delightfully unpredictable ways.

Our continuous show starts at 9:00 pm and goes until 2 am. With a full bar and tasty food, you can come early, stay late, or both. Whenever you show up, you're guaranteed hours of laughter.

*In the event of a sellout, tickets purchased will be released 30 minutes after the show begins. No Refunds.

I have opened on the road touring with national headliners Andrew "Dice" Clay and Pauly Shore. I’ve seen some great places with "Dice" like Miami, New York, and Vegas... livin’ the dream...
