This is a general admission event in The Gallery at LPR.

Runnin’ on Empty is a monthly stand-up show with nothing to lose! The show features a mix of pros and up-and-comers, from people who last performed on Conan to people who last performed to three tumbleweeds. To be fair, those tumbleweeds hadn’t laughed that hard in years. Join us at the show critics are calling “Best comedy in the city, I am so proud” (Lisa’s Mom) and “My baby is going to Hollywood!” (Yotam’s Mom).

Hosts/soul-siblings Yotam Tubul and Lisa Franklin first met in a college stand-up group, where Yotam told Lisa “I think your joke is more cute than funny,” and she replied “You’re probably right.” Since then, they’ve been thick as thieves.
