We went in 30 minutes late, found a pretty empty theater and thought it might be a boring night. But the show got better as time went on and our cheeks were hurting from laughing so hard at the end of the night!

THey were very funny looking forward to next month. The last comic did get a bit raunchy towards the end. Still very funny. I loved that you get quality people to come to Carlsbad.

Quotes & Highlights

“The cure for the common comedy show.” —Spokane Inlander
“The West Coast’s answer to Saturday Night Live.” —Inside Southern California


January 25, 2014: Dwayne Perkins

Dwayne Perkins has been seen on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show and his own Comedy Central Presents special. He’s performed stand-up on_ The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, _and also had a recurring segment on the show called called “Great White Moments in Black History.”

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.
