Hollywood Tickets and Showtimes

In 1979, after a dispute over club owners refusing to pay comedians for their performances, teenage comedian Jamie Masada recognized the need for a new venue for comedians to per form and receive payment and opened up the Laugh Factory, making it the first comedy club topay its performers. In a building formerly owned by Groucho Marx, Mr. Masada opened the Laugh Factory on the iconic world famous Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Richard Pryor, Paul Monney, Tom Dreesen, and George Miller were the first comedians to grace the now legendary Laugh Factory Stage. From that point on, the Laugh Factory has grown to be one of the most renowned comedy clubs in the world, cited in USA Today as the “#1 comedy club in the country.” Mr. Masada still attends Tuesday night Open Mic to audition amateur comics from all over.
