Thank you so much for your support since we started the show on April 18, 2011. Our show grew from a small gathering of comedians supporting another comedy show to a real thriving comedy scene, with drop ins from Hannibal Burress to the Sklar Brothers and even Nick Kroll.
As my first self produced from the ground up comedy show, this show was very special to me. It was a place I could give the performers I loved a space to hone their craft.
Each show was unique, each show had it’s own flavor, and each show was an experience I’ll remember forever.
If you were at tonight’s BRUNCH, you know that tonight was the last BRUNCH: A Comedy Show.
We had a great run. We never charged for BRUNCH. There was no drink or food minimum. We even started serving dinner when the demand became great enough. Plus, the food and drinks were all fancy and delicious.
As with many LA ALT comedy shows, something or other came up and BRUNCH’s time had run out. But hopefully unlike most LA ALT shows, it will be gone but NOT forgotten.
I know this whole to-do may seem like a lot for a show that only lasted less than a year, but screw you, this was special to me and I will memorialize it and show off all the amazing performers that graced BRUNCH with their presence.
I want to thank the Park Restaurant for giving us a home. They let us turn their lovely dining establishment into a comedy club once a week, and their wonderfully Echo Park-y restaurant was the perfect environment for some good ol’ fashioned LA ALT comedy.
I want to thank Abbey for uniting me and Jake Weisman. Thanks to Abbey, two floating comedy spirits looking to do a show found each other and immaculately concepted a baby BRUNCH show.
I also want to thank Jamie Lee for helping start and shape this magical show. Jamie always thanked me on stage, she always delivered, and I really appreciated it.
This show was a big learning experience for me. There were packed houses and nights where only the most dedicated of fans were there to see their favorites. And there were the hecklers.
Through it all was my co-producer and host, Jake Weisman. Jake set the stage for a fantastic comedy show every time. Jake calmed me down when I had panic attacks about no one showing up and everyone hating me. Jake wore cat shirts. Jake and I will do another show in the future, but nothing will replace our first.
So thanks to everyone who ever came to a BRUNCH show. Thanks to everyone who ever retweeted or reblogged or talked about our BRUNCH show. Thanks to everyone who bought drinks and food at BRUNCH and helped keep us alive.
Please enjoy all the photos of past shows here. But in cased you missed it, above is the final BRUNCH: A Comedy Show headliner, the illustrious Sean Patton.
Thanks again to everyone for their love and support. I’ll see you at the next show.
