In 1975, impresario Budd Friedman brought his hugely successful New York City club with the signature brick wall to the West, opening a branch on Melrose Avenue. That's the same spot where you will find it today. And if those walls could talk, what stories they would tell. Famed comedy director Judd Apatow managed the door, actress Debra Winger was a waitress and CBS-TV head honcho Les Moonves made cocktails at the bar. On stage, everyone from Robin Williams and Andy Kaufman to Sarah Silverman, David Spade and Dane Cook hit the stage. Today, there are 21 outposts of The Improv, all over the U.S. But it is the L.A. Improv that is the place that draws the best of the best; you cannot help but laugh when you visit this famed place for funny.
