Our show on the midterms is October 1st!


The day of reckoning (well, another one) is soon nigh. What is at stake in the midterm elections? What should happen? What should we do, besides yell at strangers on social media?

Up Close & Political is the show where comedians do stand-up on big issues, followed by a discussion with experts and the audience. We’re trying, against the odds, to have a civil and funny discussion about politics - with a great panel from across the political spectrum.

It includes:

  • Joe Carl Abousakher, Funniest Comic In LA competition finalist and host of the Hometown Heroes podcast!

  • Helen Hong, seen on Last Call with Carson Daly and Parks & Recreation!

  • Michael Loftus, host of The Flipside with Michael Loftus and seen on Comedy Central!

  • Dan Flynn, campaign advisor and political analyst!

  • Michael Knowles, host of the Michael Knowles show on The Daily Wire!

  • And, as always, host Toby Muresianu of Comedy Central’s Roast Battle!

The show is at 7:30pm (sharp) at the Hollywood Improv Comedy Club in West Hollywood. Tickets are just $5 in advance - reserve yours now!
