Celeb guests have included Bobcat Goldthwait (the voice of 'Mr. Floppy' on "Unhappily Ever After"), Paul F. Tompkins (of "D.A.G."), Brian Posehn (of "Just Shoot Me") and Dana Gould (a writer for "The Simpsons"). But most of the performers here aren't household names (at least not yet). Expect to see comics like Aimee Mann, Michael Penn, Andy Kindler, Todd Barry, Randy & Jason Sklar, Mike Siegel, Robyn Hitchcock, Sarah Silverman and Jon Brion.
You won't really see that many big stars here - but then again you might just see a future star on his way up. Who knows when the next Jerry Seinfeld is going to pop-up on a show like this? And if he does, you'll be able to tell your friends that you saw him live at NBC before he hit it big.
If you like watching new stand-up comics, this is one 'comedy club' that won't make you pay to watch the show. You can forget about the admission prices charged by places like "The Improv" or "The Laugh Factory". Like all NBC tapings, tickets are free.
You can call the NBC hotline (at 818-840-3537) to check for times and guests. To make a reservation for tickets to watch a taping of "Late Friday", call (818) 526-6857.
Audience members must be 21+ with valid picture I.D. They tell me that Stage 9 is very cold, so dress warmly. No shorts/T-shirts.
Parking: there is no longer a parking lot available at NBC for the public. You can park for free on the street, along Bob Hope Drive. After parking, walk down to Warner Court and turn right. t the end of the court, look right and follow the sidewalk to the Stage 9 security gate, where an NBC page will seat you.
(For ticket information and directions, see the article on tapings at NBC.)
