Did you know the pilgrims and natives didn't actually eat turkey at the first Thanksgiving? It's true. Most historians believe they served venison and free comedy shows. And it's with that in mind that Comedy Central Stage brings you a bountiful November stuffed with eight thanks-inducing shows at The Hudson in Hollywood.
As always, all shows start at 8pm and are free with limited seating. Call (323) 960-5519 for reservations. Here's the schedule:
For six years, Matt Price tried to befriend his next door neighbor even though she constantly insulted him, called him by the wrong name and blasted smooth jazz on her radio morning ‘til night. It’s finally time to talk about it. Written by and starring Matt Price (Men of a Certain Age, The Office). LA Weekly Pick of the Week. SPECIAL RETURN ENGAGEMENT.
