Actor / Comedian Jon Lovitz Starts New Comedy Club In Hollywood

In what is sure to shake up the comedy scene in Hollywood, we have discovered that comedian and actor Jon Lovitz is starting up his own comedy club at Universal CityWalk in late May. Called The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, it's his first venture into nightclub ownership. We wonder, is Lovitz tired of performing at The Laugh Factory where he is a staple of their club on almost any given night?

Anyway, the press release states that he'll perform regularly at the new 400-seat club and "play a leading role in booking a performance line-up that will blend veteran stars with comedy’s top newcomers.

Lovitz states that “This will be unlike anything anybody has ever experienced at a comedy club and it’s certain to be a smashing success. We’re offering great comedy, great food and an atmosphere of a tropical beach resort. It’s so real, the club’s indoors and I still got a tan."

As of this writing, we have asked if there would be any urban nights at the club and we have not heard any response yet from his management. Stay tuned.
