The Comedy & Magic Club-Hermosa Beach

The Comedy & Magic Club-Hermosa Beach

What: The Comedy & Magic Club

Where: Hermosa Beach

For: Ages 18+

Ethan and I have been to the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach on numerous occasions.  At the Club, you can watch comedy headliners performing famous stand up, or you can watch a variety of comedians some and perform 10-minute sets each.  We have rarely seen a magician on stage.

The Club

To enter the club, we always buy tickets online.  There is a calendar where you can see which comedian or magician is performing.  There is also a will-call window where you can buy tickets if there is availability that night.  A security guard checks your reservation and identification at the door.  The club is open Tuesdays through Sundays (check the calendar for special events and show times).  All seats are on a first come, first served basis.  Sometimes we have been able to get great seats in the front of the stage.  Other times we have to share a table with another couple or party.  There are booths in the back for larger groups.  Limited rooftop parking is available, and with the plethora of restrictions on street signs I recommend that patrons take an Uber or Lyft over.  Keep in mind that the club is very dark, so make sure to look where you’re stepping and going.  The table seating on the floor can get packed, which makes it difficult to get up and walk around once you’re seated.

The Food

There is a two item per person minimum in the club.  The two items can be a combination of things (i.e. two drinks, a drink and dessert, two entrees, etc.).  The applewood smoked mac and cheese and hot spinach & artichoke dip are our favorites.  If you order one of these entrees to share, it can feed two people.  Servers come around before the show and during the show.  The check is brought out about 10 minutes prior to the end of the show.  Drinks, Appetizers, Salads, Pastas, Entrees and Desserts are all offered to guests.

The Performers

As the venue states, a variety of comedians and magicians come to this club to perform.  Jay Leno comes almost every Sunday (you can tell by the different classic car that parks in the front of the club on Sunday afternoons.  Ethan and I generally come on the weekend for the 10-comedian show.  Some of the comedians are hit and miss depending on the type of comedy.  Make sure to check the show schedule online to see who will be performing.  Every time we have gone to the Comedy & Magic Club, we have left satisfied with the show.

The Crowd

The dress code is casual, although beach attire is not allowed.  A strict age limit of 18 and above is enforced, with security at the door checking IDs.  The crowd has always been a great audience for the performer(s).  There’s always one or two hecklers that the comedians have to overcome.  Most people are dressed very casually, as it is just a block away from Hermosa Beach.
