LOS ANGELES, CA, US, May 5, 2022 / -- Los Angeles Music and Art School (LAMusArt) announces its new summer series of live comedy performances, Comedy in the Courtyard, along with the grand opening of its first ever on-campus stage, the Courtyard Theatre. The Comedy Series in the Courtyard will feature a robust slate of comedy engagements including stand up, improv, sketch, drag and live podcasting.

Throughout the summer months, June-September, LAMusArt will host over twenty comedy events for the East LA community. Stand up comedy shows will occur nearly every Thursday evening, featuring local LA comics from all backgrounds. Weekend events will include a sprawling roster of 21 and older experiences.

Popular LA-based drag personality and comedian, Kay Sedia, will take audiences on a spicy journey through comical stories and live singing parodies in a sixty-minute show Taco Kisses. The popular podcast Bye, Felipe, hosted by Alison Stevenson (comedian and writer) and Alexandra Tweten (creator of the viral Instagram account of the same name and author) is joining LAMusArt to bring comedy and a live dating game to East LA. The series will also feature LA-based sketch comedy triad Babe Motel (Avery Girion, Haley Stiel, and Kelly Cripe) for two nights of stand up and sketch comedy. Other events include monthly stand up show, Galleria, hosted by Megan Koester and Alison Stevenson, and En La Sala, an evening of original short scenes and monologues performed by exclusively Latinx talent, conceptualized by Raiza Licea (Spanish Aqui Presents) and Jenny Lorenzo (What’s Up, Disney+?, Hyphenated Podcast).

The comedy series is announced in tandem with the grand opening of the organization’s new outdoor stage, custom built to suit the facility’s courtyard. With challenges brought on by COVID-19, LAMusArt found a fitting solution in building their own stage on campus.

“We’re thrilled to bring local artists into this new space, and to offer the community of East LA entertainment in their own backyard. This is a community that has been hit hard by the pandemic, and we’re so excited to bring people, new and returning, through our doors for some much needed joy,” says Executive Director, Manuel Prieto.
