Lala's Argentine Restaurant is just down the street, eat there before you go as the Groundlings does not sell food or drinks.

Wow. 5 stars. This reminded me of that one tv show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway." Very entertaining and funny. I'll definitely be going back for more laughs and fun.

An amazing deal for a very entertaining evening out! Not all the skits were as good as the best ones, but there were a lot fo laughs. Great fun.

Description

Whether it’s an all-improv extravaganza or brand new material being tested on the boards, each week is a Completely Different Show!

Groundlings and Alumni from Saturday Night Live and MADtv are always popping in to have some fun: from Will Ferrell, Cheri Oteri, Ana Gasteyer and Chris Parnell to Michael McDonald and Phil LaMarr.

The Groundlings Theatre is a breeding ground for comedians, presenting original skits, music and improv. Alumni include Jon Lovitz, Phil Hartman, Pat Morita, Lisa Kudrow and Paul Reubens, who created his Pee-wee Herman character there.
