Greetings and welcome to City Scoop. Today is Friday, July 27, the 209th day of 2012. Here’s what’s going on in West Hollywood today.
You’ve seen Peter Mac perform as Judy, now see him perform as Liza. Since January, the acclaimed tribute artist has been doing weekly cabaret shows as Judy Garland to rave reviews, but now he’s adding shows as Liza Minnelli. Thursdays-Fridays, Mac starts spreading the news as Liza; Saturdays-Sundays, he goes over the rainbow as Judy. Showtimes are Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 6 p.m. at the .
Imagine Curb Your Enthusiasm as an NC-17 flavored Scandinavian film and you begin to get an idea of Klown. Based on a popular TV show, this seemingly stream-of-consciousness comedy follows two friends run amok in the Danish countryside, plowing through social taboos and unspeakable debaucheries, the results of which are sidesplittingly funny. The Village Voice said, “HANDS DOWN THE FUNNIEST FILM OF THE YEAR…Plays like a superior, and way grosser, version of The Hangover.” Klown plays today at 7:30 and 9:45 p.m. and Saturday at 2:30 and 9 p.m. at the Silent Movie Theatre, 611 Fairfax Avenue.
Start the weekend with some jokes as the offers three different shows, at 8 p.m., 10 p.m. and midnight. Catch some laughs with LA’s top comics including Frazer Smith, Jason Stuart, David Arnold, Johnny Sanchez, Finesse Mitchell and John Henson.
