The Brea Improv
Brea Improv
120 S. Brea Blvd.
Brea, CA 92821
(714) 482-0700

As a generational staple on sitcom television, Bob Saget is still best known for his endearing fatherly character, Danny Tanner. However, Bob Saget is among one of the most respected comedians working the stand-up stage today. While continuing to work on television roles, Saget has become an accomplished writer and remains a strong draw at comedy clubs across the country. Though his on stage and on screen personas are world’s apart, a live show is much more conducive to a late night paired with some cocktails. Bob will be splitting sides and spitting some vulgarities a two-night stretch at the Brea Improv. Leave your delicate sensibilities at the door.

Drawing thousands of beer enthusiasts, only the A-game will do, as some 200 different varieties from 90 different companies will be on hand. With live music from The Spazmatics, a host of gourmet food trucks showcasing the tastiest spots in Orange County, and all the beer you can sample, it’s no wonder why this is the shindig all others aspire to be.
