The Groundlings: Taking Comedy Seriously For More Than 36 Years
By Deb Flomberg
When it comes to funny The Groundlings know how to do it right. For more than 36 years this improvisation and sketch comedy troupe has been making audiences laugh and launching the careers of some of the biggest names in comedy. Catch a hilarious show at this legendary theatre, bring along a few friends, and prepare to have your sides split from laughing so hard.
The Groundlings has launched a lot of important careers in Hollywood, and chances are you are fans of just about all of them. Saturday Night Live wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t for the talent coming from The Groundlings. Stars like Phil Hartman, Will Ferrell, Lisa Kudrow, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Will Forte, Cheri Oteri, Chris Kattan, Kathy Griffin, and Paul Reubens got their starts here.
There are a lot of different shows to take in here as well, so pick your favorites and enjoy. “Cookin’ With Gas” is one of the more popular shows at The Groundlings. For more than 20 years the main Groundlings company, famous alumni and the Sunday Companies have all played together every Thursday night, with an all-improv comedy extravaganza that is not to be missed. There is also a constantly rotating schedule of different main stage shows, brought to funny life by the current Groundlings troupe.
If you are a serious fan of comedy, then you should think about joining the Groundlings membership club, so that you always get in on the funny. You’ll get up to five tickets per year plus another 20% off other ticket purchases and 10% off merchandise. But the best part is the tickets and the special pricing for gala opening nights. This membership is a must for those that take their humor very seriously.
When it’s time to head out to enjoy your night at The Groundlings, make sure to arrive in style. Head out in the 2013 C63 AMG Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. It’s the perfect car to enjoy as you head to your night of hilarity. You’ll love all the comfort and elegance of this coupe, and you’ll be so glad to have such a great ride to take home, since your sides will be aching so much from all the laughing.
