UnCabaret performing on stage


The UnHoliday Show!

“A progressive comedy institution!” — Variety

UnCabaret is a legendary forum for wildly fun, idiosyncratic, intimate, conversational comedy. Arguably the original “alt comedy” show – and a bona fide Los Angeles comedy institution – UnCabaret has long been an incubator and venue for what reads like a who’s who roster of innovative and subversive performers. 

For more than 35 years, creator, host and producer Beth Lapides has fostered an inclusive space for the most exciting figures in comedy to assemble and tell stories that will make you laugh, applaud and reflect. Joined by musical director Mitch Kaplan, comedian Byron Bowers and a line-up of hilarious storytellers and special musical guests, UnCabaret is a must-see experience for any comedy lover. Join the gang for a seasonal UnCelebration of the most wonderful time of the year!

Get into the UnHoliday spirit of giving! We’re collecting unopened, unexpired food and personal care items for Hollywood Food Coalition. Check out their wish lists for the most needed items, and bring your donation to the show. Thanks for making a difference.

Join us for some UnHoliday shenanigans at our pop-up photo booth.  Grab a cheerful libation from the bar, and an UnHoliday prop from our costume rack.  

Booth opens at 6:30 pm. Smile and say, “Bah, Humbug!”
