NO MORE – Dive Bar Comedy

UPDATE 4/22:  Thanks to Ryan for letting us know D+D’s Joke Center is no more. Basically, the lack of love took its toll on Denver Smith, the creator: “…hopefully i can do another show somewhere less stressful. i’m still afraid i’m going to have a heart attack from doing that show. which isn’t very fun. it was just too stressful for me putting that show on every week in a place where the regulars and even employees (not Cheazer) reminded me regularly that they don’t like it. Even when there was good crowds and stuff. i love putting on shows and think i’m pretty ok at it, especially when doug and i did it together, but doing it alone every week was just really getting to me. and the guy who was filling in for Cheazer last night really made me lose it on account of he was very rude. i just can’t keep doing that right now. i want to live!”

Poor guy. :(

YouTube Preview Image D+D’s Joke Center is a *FREE* comedy night that happens 9pm every Tuesday at The Big Fish in Glendale.  Although the video makes it seem otherwise, rumor has it that well-known comics occasionally show up to do sets right alongside locals getting their start in front of the heckley dive bar crowd… but you didn’t hear that from me.

The video at left is a This American Life web episode on the show.

The Big Fish 5230 San Fernando Road, Glendale (818) 244-6442
