Valentine’s Day just came and went, and whether you’re with a loved one or not, there’s never a bad time to go to a show that makes you laugh and cheers you up. In addition to the Little Tokyo Comedy Brunch that Golda recently wrote, I attended Stand-Up Comedy at Cinefile on Valentine’s Day, a new, free comedy show that occurs every other Thursday night.
Stand-Up Comedy at Cinefile is created and hosted by Josh Fadem, a hilarious comedian and actor who also works at Cinefile Video. The event features three to four recognized comedians such as Taylor Williamson (who was featured on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”), Kate Berlant (who performed at the Los Angeles’ Riot Alternative Comedy Festival and Bridgetown Comedy Festival), and Baron Vaughn (who performed on “Conan” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon). Every performer have their own distinct personalities and charm so you will get fresh jokes covering a large variety of topics. As with most comedy shows, there will be raunchy jokes inappropriate for young children, but it is fun to watch with your adult friends and family.
The show is free for the public to attend, and free beer is usually provided as well. Those who are new to Cinefile Video will be ecstatic to find a great deal of rare foreign films to rent that they will not be able to find on Netflix and the like. It is also located next to Nuart Theatre, which plays many classic movies. Cinefile is the perfect locale for all cinephiles.
So get your laugh on at the Stand-Up Comedy at Cinefile Video on 11280 Santa Monica Boulevard right off the 405 Freeway. There is free parking located behind the store as well as metered parking on the street. You can also take buses #1, 4, 11, and 704. The next show will be held on February 28!
