A gay night of comedy at the Hollywood Improv...

For a change of pace last night we went to see some stand-up comedy at the Hollywood Improv on Melrose Avenue.

Regular Jason in Hollywood visitors will know that aside from eating our way around L.A., we also try and get out to sample whatever L.A. culture we can, whether it's classical music at the Hollywood Bowl or a night of gay comedy just around the corner from where we live.

So for $10 (with flyer) and a minimum two item purchase (OK I'll have two cosmos if you insist) we accompanied our friends to Gays R Us at the Hollywood Improv which is held the first Wednesday of every month.

Who'd have thought there were so many funny lesbians? And that they could make fun of themselves? The female performers last night were so much funnier than the guys.

Our expectations had been managed by our friends, so they were sufficiently low enough that we were surprised by the wealth of laughs there were. Actually some moments were side-splittingly funny and I nearly sprayed my cosmo from my mouth on numerous occasions.

The Improv is a world famous venue and has helped launch the career of many comedians such as Robin Williams, Adam Sandler, Lily Tomlin, Jerry Seinfled and dozens more, so it's no surprise that it was a good night. You never know with comedy though, some people thrive on stage, whilst others just die in front of your eyes, which is always painful to watch.

We even spied Briana in the audience, the ex-girlfriend of Jackie Warner from the third season of the Bravo TV reality show Workout. Not necessarily a celebrity sighting, but it was someone off the TV.

I think that we may just have found something to entertain us on the first Wednesday of every month.

Talking about months, can you believe we've now been here six months already? How did that happen? One minute it's March and in the blink of an eye it's September.

Like they say, time flies when you're having fun...
