The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

You can throw the first 3 comedians away. The only one that was worth the time was Jo Koy.

Show started late, more than 37 minutes later than the published price.

Seats were hard and uncomfortable.

Since 2007, writer, commentator and “Staff Homosexual” Guy Branum has infused Chelsea Lately with his outlandish and hilarious gay humor.  Before joining the Chelsea team, Branum was the head writer for G4’s X-Play and contributed on the comedy podcast Weezy and the Swish.

Brad Wollack served as a sideline reporter on Comedy Central’s Battlebots many years ago and as a writer/producer, he received a 2004 Emmy nomination for his work on the Wayne Brady Show.”  Wollack has also written and produced for: MTV’s The New Tom Green Show and Parental Control, FOX’s Jingle Ball Rock, NBC’s Radio Music Awards and a number of others.  He is also a veteran stand-up comedian having played at Hollywood Improv, the Laugh Factory and various comedy houses around the country.

Jo Koy is dynamic, charismatic and approachable – “a comic for the people.”  While on stage, he mixes a lively physical presence with full energy, sharp observational humor, and inspirational-family-based laughs. His unique energetic stand up comedy performance is a big hit with fans of all ages and racial backgrounds.  His plethora of appearances include a standing ovation on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show (2005), BET’s Comic View and Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza!, and has been twice invited to the Montreal comedy festival – Just for Laughs, the series for which he was awarded Canada’s prestigious Gemini Award.
