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.

Freddy Lockhart was hilarious!!!
Jacob Siroff - not so much. Didn't seem like he had a bit prepared, he just kind of made up stuff as he went along.

More Information

Description

Jacob Sirof was born and raised in San Francisco, California during the “Comedy Boom” of the 1980’s. There were few places more booming than San Francisco, so nobody was too surprised when Jacob announced at an early age that he wanted to be a comedian when he grew up. Today, Jacob still hasn’t grown up, although he is a comedian. As a young adult, he started doing stand-up in his hometown, and quickly joined the ranks of a promising young crop of local talent, which has since been dubbed “The New Wave” of San Francisco comedy. In 2006, Jacob was selected to perform at the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, Canada, where he got very drunk and high with comedians and industry-types from all over the world. His television appearances include Live At Gotham on Comedy Central and Down and Dirty With Jim Norton on HBO. He has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as the Hollywood Reporter, and performs across much of the known galaxy. Jacob currently resides in Santa Monica, California with his wife, fellow comic Sherry Sirof, and their daughter, Wynter Moon. He would like to do comedy for ever and ever, yet he is a mere mortal, and will most likely die someday.  

Since an early age, comedian Freddy Lockhart always knew he wanted to pursue a career in comedy. At the age of 20, he packed up his belongings and moved from Arizona to Hollywood, California where he quickly found employment at The World Famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard. It was at The Comedy Store where Lockhart quickly learned the craft of being a professional comedian, and would quickly become a paid regular at the young age of 23. Since then Lockhart has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, and was a cast member of the short-lived TBS sketch show, Frank TV. His unique outlook on the world comes through in his act, as he crisscrosses between stories of growing up in the Arizona heat, to a variety of impersonations ranging from Morgan Freeman to Ice-T.
