Best Off-the-Beaten-Path Stand-Up Comedy Party (2012)
Take one artsy warehouse, add a DJ and food truck, and finish off the equation with free food and wine. What more could in-the-know audiences possibly need from a consistently engaging comedy show? Ah, yes: top-notch stand-up, sketch, music and videos, all culminating in an evening (every third Thursday of the month) that's much more hip, creative mixer than two-drink-minimum marathon of mainstream joke-monkeys. The Super Serious Show takes an army of production-crew members and sponsors to plan, execute and archive every event, but the quality speaks for itself. The future of live comedy is here, and it's a Super Serious endeavor. 5257 W. Adams Blvd., W. Adams. (323) 931-4636, superseriousshow.com.
