E!’s “The Soup” host Joel McHale is doing a special one-night stand-up show at the Brea Improv tonight at 8 p.m. McHale, who also stars as Jeff Winger on NBC’s “Community,” is rather new to the stand-up world, but has come a long way since his painful-to-watch set at the 2009 Comedy Fiesta at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine.
McHale has quickly become a popular club headliner as he continues to sharpen his act – sans the help of a teleprompter.
The actor turned stand-up comic has appeared in several feature films including “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World,” “The Informant!” and he lent his voice to Elliot in the animated flick “Open Season 2.” He’s also guest starred on “CSI: Miami,” “Pushing Daisies” and “Will & Grace.”
Brea Improv is located at 120 S. Brea Boulevard in Downtown Brea. Tickets are $25 and the show is 18-and-up. 714-482-0700 or breaimprov.com.
More upcoming acts at the Brea Improv:
Pete Correale, April 26-29
Ralphie May, May 4-6
Sebasitan Maniscalco, May 10-13
