Some say West Hollywood's famous Comedy Store is haunted – reports abound of footsteps when there’s no one around, lights flickering or turning off and on and freezing cold spots in the middle of an otherwise warm room. But whether you believe in ghosts or not, this WeHo staple will have you guffawing seven nights a week, with some of the biggest names in comedy performing regularly. Tickets aren’t always cheap but they’re always worth it.
