I hadn’t been to the Groundlings in many years and was looking forward to it. I remember always thinking it was a five star activity. First off parking in the area is absolutely horrible. If you’re lucky you’ll find a meter on Melrose. Other wise...More

Excellent show! This was our first time, but we thoroughly enjoyed the show. The cast and crew put on 20 different skits in rapid form succession. The improv session was nothing short of masterful! Groundlings is in a small, intimate theater, but the performers were...More
