You never forget your first set.


Comedians sacrifice one Stand-Up Virgin.

About the Sacrifice

We take someone who has never done stand up before and give them five minutes on stage at the Westside Comedy Theater where they perform alongside top comedians like Howie Mandel, Damon Wayans, Jeff Garlin, Kevin Pollack, Pete Holmes, Bryan Callen and more! Previous virgins have been doctors, lawyers, teachers, moms, dads, bartenders and grandpas. Full house. High energy. High stakes. First Thursday each month.

 

"Arguably, the best standup show in L.A. It's sad, really, that nicole's able to take someone who's never done standup before and make them look this good. we schlep and we grind, and she somehow Fairy Godmothers a virgin into a headliner. and then there's also a famous headliner. this show has too much. (Sean Casey, Westside comedy)

"Nicole says it's a chance for someone to do standup for the first and last time. But the crowd and show are so supportive... she may not know she's creating a monster. Or another great standup comic. Same thing." (Jackie Kashian - @midnight)

 

Nicole Blaine greets Howie Mandel in Virgin Sacrifice's June show, a surprise guest. You never know who will show up on the Virgin Sacrifice stage.

Comedy legend Damon Wayans, and other top comics from The Tonight Show, Conan, HBO, Comedy Central, and many more on the Virgin Sacrifice stage. 

Jeff Garlin thanks Nicole for organizing a wonderful show for his friend (and Virgin), Jen Candy.

"I had a blast! It was a really memorable show." (Jennifer Swann - L.A. Weekly)

"Nicole gets each part of producing right - from concept to venue to performers. Each time I step on stage I'm met with this fantastic audience who is ready to play." 
(Dana Eagle - Last Comic Standing)
