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)
