About the Laugh Factory:
Opening its doors in 1979, the world-famous Laugh Factory has been recognized as "the #1 comedy club in the country" by such high-profile media as USA Today. With southern California locations in Hollywood (its original Sunset Boulevard locale) and Long Beach (opened in 2008), comedy's top stars - as well as today's brightest emerging talent - shine on its legendary stage. Founder Jamie Masada - a pioneer, innovator and iconic name on the comedy scene, who got into "The Biz" at the age of 14 - has been instrumental in launching the careers of many of today's biggest comics. A former stand-up himself, Masada is a sought-after consultant and successful producer of comedy franchises for film (Disney's RocketMan, Damon Wayan's Behind the Smile), television (DirecTV's Supreme Court of Comedy, FOX's In Living Color, Showtime's Full Frontal Comedy, UPN's Vibe, FOX's Comic Strip Live), radio (Premiere Radio's syndicated Laugh Factory Joke of the Day, which enjoyed an 18-year run) and live events (Comedy March on Washington). With a strong belief that "laughter is the best medicine," Masada is also a dedicated philanthropist, working extensively with underprivileged children and the homeless (feeding and entertaining those in need) and a supporter of struggling artists.
