Launched on Memorial Day in San Diego, The Comedy Store Pacific Beach was widely successful and sellouts on Tuesday were common. Some shows had Gallagher, Robin Willams, David Letterman and Michael Keaton on the same bill. Nobody knew back then, but the public! They jammed the 200-seat room in total appreciation of both the future stars and of the all comedy concept hatched by Mitzi, in Hollywood, 1973, and delivered first to San Diego, 3 years later.
The Comedy Store South moved to its current location in La Jolla in 1977. Since then it has featured the best and brightest up and coming stars in stand-up comedy.
