Laughtivism Takes over the TIM Stage

TIM loves connecting you to the best national comedy acts.  Saturday night we are proud to bring in a great out of town comedy guest to perform on our stage.  LaughtivismLA brings you sketch, song parody, personal story, and improv comedy about lighthearted topics such as racial tension, homelessness, and sexism! We've got some Laughtivism classics mixed in with some brand new material! Be the laugh you wish to see in the world! Laughtivism LA: Seriously funny!

Warning: We're bipartisan. Please silently judge us accordingly.

Started in January 2015, Laughtivism LA focuses on initiating conversation about social issues through comedy. After performing 10 original shows at iO West in Los Angeles in the past year, this fall they're hitting the road to perform in San Fransisco, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson, and San Diego. Comedic influences: Key & Peele, Amy Schumer, The Daily Show.

Be there Saturday at 9 PM so see them perform with the Traveling Thornberrys.  All tickets are just $5.
