To attend monthly comedy event Crave, go to the website, RSVP to get the location, show up to the (secret) address and enter via the back alley, through a small opening in a fence. An outdoor patio leads to the venue, a crude, loud, hangarlike space, with Alice in Wonderland touches such as an enormous flower. Comedian Alex Hooper founded Crave after previously organizing comedy shows on a rooftop, which got him arrested. The comedy portion features a dependable array of L.A. alternative comedians; that's followed by a dance party — hence the name, a merging of comedy and rave. It's not the most intimate of comedy venues, but that can mean more raucousness and spontaneity. Oh, and there are acrobats. cravecomedy.com. —Zachary Pincus-Roth
