Starting Friday, February 10, The Setup Comedy will feature a showcase of six to seven of the funniest comedians around. But this isn’t your average stand up comedy show set in a grimy backroom.
The Setup is upgrading the experience, setting their show in a speakeasy (simply called “The Cocktail Lounge”) attached to one of Hollywood’s most iconic and intimate venues: The Bourbon Room (6356 Hollywood Blvd 2nd floor).
The Setup was started in 2015 by veteran comedians Richard Sarvate and Abhay Nadkarni. You may recognize Sarvate from his hilarious TikTok series “Night of the Living Karens,” and Abhay Nadkarni is the co-creator of the largest South Asian comedy festival in the country, Desi Comedy Fest.
Since its founding, The Setup has since become a national brand. Always located in the classiest venues, The Setup has made a name for themselves as one of the go-to spots for both big names and up-and-comers.
Likewise, the Bourbon Room has long been a venue for not only comedy legends like Patton Oswalt, Bill Burr, and Tiffany Hadish, but also top-tier concerts and performances like Drag: The Musical.
The Bourbon Room is located in the heart of Hollywood, so you can easily make this evening of comedy a whole night out. The venue also offers delicious cocktails and small bites as you enjoy the show.
Luckily, this isn’t just a single night of laughs. The Setup will be at the Bourbon Room through March and the lineup is constantly changing. So feel free to catch multiple shows for a completely new experience every time.
The Setup is bringing the punchlines to the Bourbon Room’s Cocktail Lounge starting Friday, February 10. Upgrade your comedy experience to the classiest speakeasy on Hollywood Blvd and get your tickets before they’re gone!
