• Jay Leno, Dana Carvey, more to celebrate comedy club’s 50th anniversary

    Jay LenoIt’s a Pasadena legend, and with 50 years in the biz under its built, we don’t have any trouble seeing why. The “it” in question here is the Ice House Comedy Club, and on Sunday, Oct. 10, will celebrate its 50th year as a stand-up stalwart at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

    This one-of-a-kind, birthday bash extravaganza will feature performances from Jay Leno, Brad Garrett, Dana Carvey, Paula Poundstone, Gabriel Iglesias, George Wallace, Fritz Coleman, Craig Robinson, along with a myriad of others. Proceeds from the event will be donated to The Hillsides Home for Children and The Bob Hope USO.

    As if this weren’t enough of a comedy overload, festivities actually begin on October 3, when Ice House’s Week of 100 Comedy Stars kicks off for seven days of stand-up superstars past and present.
