LOL-Apalooza: Friday, Aug. 27
A somewhat rockin’ evening of music and comedy…The World Famous Comedy Store in conjunction with the Sunset Strip Music Festival presents LoL-Apalooza.

The world of standup has its fair share of music acts that straddle that line to great success. In the grand tradition of Andy Kaufman, Spike Jones and Flight Of The Conchords, we are pleased to present an amazing evening of laughs and musicality starring some of the country’s best double threats. Join BKO, Alicyn Packard, Tartar Control, MC Mr. Napkins, Julia Lillis, Casual Mafia, J. Chris Newberg and more for a musical night of fun as we ease into the Sunset Strip Music Festival.
