With a name like "Laugh Factory," you know you're in for a good time. Safe to say, the comedy club's latest event was no exception. Over the weekend, the famed West Hollywood venue was the place to be as people everywhere united for a festive holiday meal. Here's what they cooked up this time around.
On Thursday, November 26, at 12 p.m. the famed club opened their doors for "ANYONE who needs a laugh, a meal, or just to be around others to join us as we serve a Thanksgiving feast & jokes to the community we love," as they perfectly put it. Sure enough, the 2021 event was exactly as advertised - and then some...
Hosted by comedy legend Tiffany Haddish, Laugh Factory's festive feast called for lots more than a plate of hot food. For starters, Haddish wasn't the only familiar face in attendance. From Dane Cook to Paul Rodriguez to Tom Dreesen, the star-studded event was, no doubt, one for the books.
In case you forgot, though, this isn't the first time our favorite comedians swapped red-carpets for aprons. The Laugh Factory has been hosting communal Thanksgiving meals for 40+ years now. And from the sounds of it, they won't be cutting that tradition anytime soon.
"Spending the Thanksgiving holiday alone is no laughing matter," Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada explained. "Laugh Factory’s still very committed to creating a welcoming and joyous atmosphere for those who are unable to afford a Thanksgiving meal, or those who have nowhere to go for the holiday." After all, "We know that laughter is healing, and we need laughter now more than ever after all we’ve been through."
While we'll now have to wait 11 months for our next Turkey Day, we've already got lots to be thankful for. From long-awaited Netflix comedy specials to Laugh Factory's wholesome goodness, this holiday season is already looking very merry.
Stay tuned. Who knows what other gifts we've got headed our way?
