There are always good laughs at West Coast Funnies. The last comedian on the show was phenomenonally funny, Brian Kiley. I would definitely see him again. I am not so fond of the skits, so I rated it a 4, but it is well worth your time for the featured comedian and some of the other comedians.

February 15, 2014: Barry Diamond
Mr. Barry Diamond makes his record 12th appearance on the West Coast Funnies stage. Diamond's credits are impressive. He has appeared in "Friends", "Seinfield", "Politically Incorrect", "Curb Your Enthusiasm” and every movie with the word “party” in it. Diamond is an absolute hit on stage; he's a cut above the rest, with a high-calibre repertoire, which sees him undergo numerous personality changes with great effect. His act is difficult to describe: he doesn't tell one-liners, instead he prefers to weave different stories into his act. He introduces his various characters early in the show; they then appear throughout the act, often in the same sentence. The characters aren't impersonations of famous people, instead they're impersonations of everyday people, complete with hand gesturing and facial expressions. It's very unique, very wild -- and very funny.
