Description: Socially Awkward is a stand up comedy brand that is new to the Hollywood Improv! With the best comedians in the industry today you will not be disappointed.  Hosted and a produced by Vinny Fasline,  he defines himself as socially awkward. If you think about it, stand up comedy is socially awkward. An individual stands in front of a room of strangers and attempts to break their judgement and make them laugh, by sharing insecurities and judging others -- all of this to obtain self gratification. It's messed up right? Well... that's what makes it funny.  Wait, there's more. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Come on people... that's awesome. We can't wait to see you there!
