ABOUT VICTORY LAP
Victory Lap takes place every third Tuesday of the month at The Virgil, the hottest new comedy venue in Los Angeles. This riotous, variety show is the brain child of Seth W. Owen (a veteran of the Montreal comedy scene), Stuart Jenkins (New York funny man) and Sharon Eisman (a girl who knows how to get things done). After spending many hours at comedy shows sitting in hard back chairs act after act, they decided they wanted to create something that would get the audience out of their seats and remind them of TV comedy classics like The Muppet Show, The Gong Show and Playboy After Dark. They grabbed musician Alex Dezen (The Damnwells) to create the house band Warp Drive and got to work. The result? A wacky mix of music, comedy, novelty and a giant prize wheel that can lead to anything and everything including Slow Dances, Time Machines, and Konko. What's Konko? EXACTLY.
