AOL Travel Editor's Review

LA has famous comedy venues, including the Comedy Store and the Improv. The Laugh Factory features name as well as up-and-coming comics, with functional-at-best décor but an intimate room that’s perfect for watching standup. Many legendary comics have passed through here, including Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, Michael Richards, Robin Williams, Rodney Dangerfield, Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock. The Laugh Factory opened in 1979 and while it has changed over the years it still is ranked as the number one comedy club in the country and continues to produce top comedians.

  This is the perfect place to stop by on a night out. Hit the 8PM or 10PM show before going out. The cocktails are strong and the caliber of talent is always the highest. No amateurs here; the Laugh Factory is all stars!...   Read More

  After living in Dallas for a long time and enjoying the comedy scene there, I had high expectations when I made my first visit to the Laugh Factory and I can gladly say that all of my expectations were met and exceeded. Sometimes with these famous high profile clubs you build up some grand image in your head only to be let down, but this was not the case with the historic club on Sunset Blvd. The club itself just looks, smells, and feels like old Hollywood history. The walls are covered with the faces of the famous comics who have graced the stage. We saw Harland Willims and he was absolutely hilarious, and all the other openers, especially Chris D'Elia, were amazingly funny too. My stomach hurt when I left, but in a good way! The drinks were also good, stronger than expected which was nice for a comedy club, and our server was great. For a huge stand up fan such as myself, nobody judges a club harder than I do. I have to give The Laugh Factory a pat on the back, I had a great experience and will be back every chance I get....   Read More

  I always seem to run into celebs when I go to the Laugh Factory - Bob Saget, Ludacris, Eva Longoria, Tim Allen, Chris Rock! I would recommend this place to anyone because there is ALWAYS something going down here - great comedy too :)...   Read More
