Beth Lapides performs on stage


“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 and a line-up of hilarious storytellers and comedians including Laura Kightlinger, Jackie Kashian, Aida Rodriguez and Jamie Bridgers, UnCabaret is a must-see experience for any comedy lover.
