Seating there is cramped between the tables. Tall people might have issues.

Beware!!! The American Comedy Company has a strict 2 drink minimum policy. From what I was told by the waitress food doesn't count toward that policy.

Watch a segment of Gene Pompa’s stand-up.

Description

Gene Pompa, comedian and writer, was born in East Los Angeles, California. He has been a Mexican American most of his life, except for a few years during the 1970’s, when he was a practicing Chicano. Pompa became a product of his multiethnic upbringing in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and it was this diverse background which ultimately inspired Pompa to incorporate universal themes into his stand up comedy and writing. 

Pompa’s offbeat perspective on comedy crosses all racial and ethnic lines, and goes over well with everyone from college age audiences, to a more mature crowd. Greatly influenced by Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and Steve Martin, Pompa has been inspired to develop his own brand of late night humor with The Nite Nite Show, a show with great social relevance and irrelevance.
