No Cover At The Door
Description: A throwback to the old school days here at the Improv, starting right after the 10pm show we open the stage to our seasoned Improv regular comedians who are hanging out at the club to work out their sets. Previous drop-ins include Russell Peters, Jeff Ross, Craig Robinson, Hugh Moore, Ryan Stout, KT Tatara, J Chris Newberg, Brent Weinbach and more!
The show is NO COVER and seated on a first come first serve basis and there is NO DRINK MINIMUM.
Come out for a fun, unpredictable show to end your Saturday night.
Eliot Chang: Eliot Chang's "Comedy Central Presents" half hour special was voted #2 in the Comedy Central Stand Up Showdown 2011. Other TV appearance include Showtime's "Minority Report" and E!'s "Chelsea Lately." Sharp biting opinions combined with his trademark polished wardrobe make Eliot's live performances memorable.
This comedian is also an actor and improviser. He studied improv in NY at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) and then with Armando Diaz at the Magnet Theater, where he was on the house team "Jungle! Jungle!"
Every year he tours America for 8 months and has performed at over 400 colleges.
Born and raised in NY, Eliot moved to Los Angeles in 2007. He travels regularly between both coasts for projects.
Peter Banachowski: Raised in the small town of Oxford MI, Peter started stand up in Detroit at age 17 while working many jobs and earning a degree in mathematics.
Now at 24, he lives in Los Angeles where he performs stand up every single night of the week, and regularly hosts 2-4 shows a week at the Hollywood Improv.
Banachowski's style of comedy is very conversational and stream of thought. His sets are filled with honesty and vulnerability making every moment seem like an inside joke between himself and the audience. Banachowski paints a picture for his audience using voices, characters, and telling deeply personal, true stories while providing unique and smart social commentary.
He thanks you in third person for reading this and hopes to see you soon.
