Laugh Factory Long Beach: My Funny Valentine

February 17, 2009

February 14th, 2009.

Laugh Factory Long Beach had two sold out shows on one of the most ridiculously made up day of the year, Valentine’s Day. Patrons were lining up outside the venue, waiting to be seated. Temperature was steadily dropping as the night rolled on. The first show was scheduled to go on 7:45 PM, and the host of the show didn’t get to take the stage an hour later. Darren Carter was one of the comics to perform on the first show. Having just recorded his second live CD the night before, Carter entertained the audience with his staple bits.

The audience for the second show started lining up outside the venue shortly after the first show started. The second show started close to 11:00 PM, 85 minutes later than scheduled. Last minute line-up changes took some of the fans by surprise as some of them came to the show to see certain comics. Some fans expressed their disappointments when they found out the comic they came to see were seemingly replaced at the last minute. Jill-Michele Meleán was scheduled to host the second show only to be replaced by Frazer Smith without explanations. Meleán ended up hosting Midnight Show at Laugh Factory Hollywood.

Overall, the night was a smashing success. The Valentine crowds were entertained and the venue had two huge sold out shows. There are a lot of wrinkles for Laugh Factory to iron out to make itself the destination for attraction in the Long Beach area. Laugh Factory Long Beach is no stranger to last minute line-up changes. On its grand opening show, many comics were advertised but ended up absent from the show.
