Natasha Leggero: London! Paris! Costco! 

@ Upright Citizens Brigade Theater

Wednesday, Apr 30 2014
"Classy" is a fairly malleable term in this era of irony and insincerity - but as comedian Natasha Leggero delves into her chortlesome cycle London! Paris! Costco! , at least she's not doomed to Walmart. Consistently well-heeled and apparently no stranger to food bought in bulk, Leggero has had a storied career tearing at the frailties behind cows both sacred and celebrity. The Chelsea Lately panelist and connoisseur of all things SpaghettiOs is also the star of her own YouTube show, Tubbin' With Tash, in which various guests percolate and marinate in the egg-drop soup of Jacuzzi-driven sit-down comedy. Her 2011 stand-up album, Coke Money (taped live for some strange reason in deepest darkest Denver), carries within it a rather trenchant satire of 1-percenters and all their inherent sociopathic remoteness, an act that becomes less difficult to pull off as time goes on - especially with people like Leggero wheedling and needling on nights like these. UCB Theatre, 5919 Franklin Ave., Hlywd.; Wed., April 30, 8 p.m.; $5. (323) 908-8702, losangeles.ucbtheatre.com.
Wed., April 30, 8 p.m., 2014 (Expired: 04/30/14)
