No other club in Los Angeles has quite the same vibe as Largo. Music events and comedy revues alternate on the booking schedule, but on most nights the two combine for a uniquely daft yet tuneful blur of unpredictable entertainment. The club was located for almost two decades in a small space on Fairfax Avenue (featuring performers like Nellie McKay, Larry David, Glen Phillips, Aimee Mann, Brad Mehldau, Tenacious D and the late Elliott Smith), but in 2008 proprietor Mark Flanagan relocated Largo to the venerable playhouse the Coronet Theater. In its current location, Largo's stage has featured many of the regulars from the old days, including Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Sara & Sean Watkins, Robyn Hitchcock and Grant-Lee Phillips, along with such stellar visitors as Suzanne Vega, Nicole Atkins, and Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl. As ever, big-name comedians like Russell Brand, Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho and Eddie Izzard frequently drop by. The West Hollywood room is a "sit-down theater with a strict no-talking policy." And, unlike at many nightclubs, the folks at Largo are also strict and literal about the posted showtimes, with no admittance to those who arrive late. The adjoining cafe is spruced up with arty feathered mannequins and black-&-white photos of the venue's storied past. Across a small courtyard lies the Little Room, an aptly named beer-&-wine bar that also hosts music and comedy. Paid parking is available next door, at 360 N. La Cienega Blvd., in the Baker Building. All ages.

There is a perception that comedians are happiest when everything is at its most miserable. Untrue. When misfortune befalls comics, they want to make sense of it the best way they possibly can, and communicate that understanding to you. They... More »
For over a decade, the tiny club space on Fairfax that housed Largo regularly packed in audiences for some of the greatest music and comedy shows in town. Owner Mark Flanagan remodeled the venue in 1996 and programmed a constant slate of terrific musicians -- most notably singer-songwriters including Aimee Mann, the late Elliott Smith and Friday-night house maestro Jon Brion -- as well as marquee comics like Sarah Silverman and Patton Oswalt. As Largo’s deservedly great... More »
