If you’re looking for something to do on date night with your significant other and you love great laugh, then we have the perfect plan for you. Southern California is home to some legendary comedy clubs we’ve compiled a list of some that make for the perfect date night. Go on the weekends for the big acts or catch a weekday show for the up-and-comers.
