The Improvised Stand-Up Show with Jeremiah Watkins is a monthly comedy event that is quickly becoming one of the hottest rooms in Los Angeles. This is not your typical comedy show — it is a stand-up show, in that it’s a comedian and a microphone…but it’s also an improv show, in that the comics take suggestions from the audience on what to talk about. This is the rare opportunity where the audience gets to decide the subject matter; nothing is off-limits and the comics are completely raw and uncensored. Past performers include, Bill Burr, Ari Shaffir, Ian Edwards, Jonah Ray, Deal Delray… Also known to have free beer… what!?
