UnCabaret is the legendary show that Entertainment Weekly called "Liberating", Los Angeles Magazine called "Legendary", The New York Times called "Seminal", LA Weekly called "The Mother Show of alternative comedy".

UnCabaret is where award winning comedy writers like Judd Apatow, John Riggi, Michael Patrick King and Larry Charles have connect directly with audiences. Where luminaries like Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Roseanne Barr, Sandra Bernhard, Carrie Fisher and Bill Maher have popped in to try their hand at this comedy free styling.
