If you are ever looking for a fun night out in the South Bay, the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach is the perfect place to go. Ambiance, food and entertainment all come together to create an evening of laughter and amusement.
The venue is small enough that you get a good look at the stage no matter where you sit. On my last trip there we were escorted to a small intimate table off to the right side of the room, with a perfect view of the performer.
If you have a seating preference, arrive early because seating is first come, first served. Doors open with ample time to eat, socialize and check out the atmosphere. Hollywood artifacts are encased in shadowboxes along the walls as a tribute to some of the greatest comedians of all times and are interesting to check out before or after the show.
Some of the greatest performers choose to show off their talent at the Comedy and Magic Club. Jay Leno is featured weekly and he often uses the venue to try out new lines, which means you will get a different show every time.
Gabriel Iglesias is one of my personal favorite comedians and he tends to make an appearance about once a month. You area also likely to see the artistic talents of Kathleen Madigan, Paul Reiser, David Spade, Jerry Seinfield, Ray Romano and other big names in comedy. The best deal at the Comedy and Magic Club is their 10 Hot Comics Show. It is a comedian roulette featuring 10 comics and you are not quite sure who is going to go next or what the subject matter will be, but it will be funny!
Food and Drink
There is a two item minimum but the two items can be anything on the menu and everything is delicious. My favorite starter is the Hot Spinach Dip with crispy tortilla chips. I have a particular fondness for desserts and am always excited when I see something unique on the menu.
The Comedy and Magic Club serves yummy Blood Orange Sorbet, an Irresistible Brownie Sundae and Crispy Apple Pie Eggrolls served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is difficult to pick a favorite from so many tasty treats. Top it all off with a Thin Mint drink featuring peppermint Schnapps, Baileys and Coffee.
