i o west

Comedy clubs Hollywood, where comedians are born, crucified and resurrected every night. Sketch shows, comedy skits and improv classes at the Hollywood branch of the Improv club, a legendary comic proving ground that has launched the careers of Mike Myers, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and dozens of other top female comedians. Mingle in the crowded bar to try out new material over a few drinks, before hitting the stage at one of the most amateur-friendly comedy clubs in Hollywood.

Jimmy Kimmel Live

The Metro Rail line to television stardom starts here! First, take the Red Line to attend a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live in Hollywood. Study the testosterone-rich comedian's style, watch how he sets up a joke and powers through to the punchline. Then, ride the Red Line to I/O West, where you can take improv classes at one of the best comedy clubs Hollywood has to offer. Take the Gold Line to the Ice House, continue to learn from the masters, while dipping your toes into the heckler-infested waters of open mic night. Gradually attain a following, move up from opening act to headliner at the top comedy clubs in Hollywood. Wow a couple agents, get signed, tour America and eventually land your own late night talk show. Blow Jimmy out in the ratings, until one night, Mr. Kimmel himself is but a humble guest on your show. Look into the camera, wait for the musical cue from your house band leader Paul Schaffer Jr., then with all the false sincerity you can muster, say "Thank You L.A. Electric Travel."
