Stranger than Fiction is Awesome! – Never been to an improv show, and my friend dragged me. These guys are awesome! I laughed so hard my stomach hurt at the end of the show. How do they come up with this stuff so fast?TThe theatre doesn't have a bar, but you can bring your own drinks in. Tickets are pretty cheap, $10, and it includes the 1030p show We did not stay for that one. GO SEE THESE GUYS!!! I can't wait to go back.
Hilarious comic actors – I saw the 10:30 show on Saturday night, I don't remember their name, but they were so funny. Scene after scene they had the audience in stitches. I'd never been to that theater before, but I will definitely go back. Very talented crew. I can't believe what they're able to come up with on the spot. My head hurt just thinking about it.
Intimate Comedy (that means small) – If you are looking for current comedy headliners, this is not the place, but the rotating casts (we saw two seperate casts on a Saturday night) are talented and really seem to bring the audience in to the show. The shows were 100% improv, no scripted material, which is great if that's what you are looking for.
The facilities are not the reason to visit this place, it's small and a bit run down. That said, if you are looking for a fun dive bar of comedy, this is a good choice. (Speaking of bars, they don't serve alcohol, but have a BYOB policy so come equipped.)
Great evening at great price – I discovered the LA Connetion last weekend and was surprised. I walk by it all the time but have never gone in. Well last Friday night after dinner my friends and I decided to give it a try and were amazed. The 9 o'clock show was outstanding. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. We were also allowed to stay for the next show free. I can't believe I waited this long to go. I will go again.
Great comedy shows at great price! – I didn't know what to expect when I first got there but was pleasantly surprised. We went on Friday night and saw the 9 PM show. A friend of ours saw it and recommended it. They were right. It was hilarious! I would recommend this to anyone. We will be coming back.
There isn't any food or a bar, but our friends informed us ahead of time that we could bring in our own.
Funny improv comedy – I am a big fan of improv comedy, and I was very pleased with what La Connection had to offer. It's nestled in Sherman Oaks, I've passed it lots of times, but inside there is a decent theatre and some very talented improvisers. I went to the 7pm show on Friday, walked to dinner, then came back for the 9:00 which shows a group that has been together for about 10 years or so. I really enjoyed how everyone played to the top of their intelligence and didn't resort to potty humor, so I feel comfortable bringing my mom! All in all, a really fun and different nightlife experience for me in the valley!
Best Laughs per Dollars spent out of any club in town!! – I've been seeing shows at the L.A. Connection Comedy Theatre for over ten years, and the laughs keep going year after year. The theatre is a cozy place, that over the last two years has gone through some vast improvements!! The stage is now completely redone - what a magical place for LA Improvers to be creative and put on fantastic shows for the Hollywood Community! I know that this theatre has created opportunities for professional and amateur performers alike, with some becoming major Hollywood Actors, Directors and Producers. This theatre loves to teach, and they love to perform. As audience members we love to laugh. We love improvisation at at the LA Connection Comedy Theatre. I know first hand that they have great performances as well as training for all ages. The thing that is unique about this theatre, is that they have a wonderful program for kids on Sunday afternoons. So many talented kids train under the Sunday program! And what's even better- this theatre also comes directly to you and your event!
Unassuming Sherman Oaks theater provides big laughs in a small space. – In Short
The comedy, not the decor, is the focus at this intimate theater. Brick walls, ragged carpeting and tightly packed seats create an informal atmosphere. The crowd usually consists of a mix of families and 20-something couples who are often called upon to participate in the improv, sketch and stand-up comedy shows. Serious comics with aspirations of improv greatness enroll in L.A. Connection classes; alumni include "Saturday Night Live" stars Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan.
