So these two New York City comics, Josh Haness and Josh Weinstein, move to Los Angeles and, in 2008, decide to put together a show. They want to introduce the inhabitants of their new home to all their cool friends who write for shows like Conan and Family Guy. Some of those friends have names like Demetri Martin and Sarah Silverman and the Sklar Brothers. The Joshes find a place to host their shindig — Bar Lubitsch, a bar with a retro vibe and bartenders who know how to make a classic cocktail strong. And as if this all weren't awesome enough, Josh and Josh decide that their weekly “comedy salon,” as they've come to think of it, is going to be free. No cover, no drink minimum. Just the opportunity for whoever shows up early enough to fit inside the room to check out some of the funniest up-and-coming and veteran comics in L.A. Doors open for the Josh and Josh Show at 8 p.m. every Thursday night. 7702 Santa Monica Blvd., W. Hlywd. (323) 654-1234.,
