Improv Club Ok'd For Irvine

September 06, 1986|CHALON SMITH

The Irvine Planning Commission has handed down a decision that should inspire a few laughs in coming months: On Thursday it unanimously approved the opening of a new Improvisation comedy club near UC Irvine.

The club, scheduled to open in late November, will be the third Improv in California, joining the 11-year-old Los Angeles establishment and a San Diego club that opened in 1984.

The Irvine Improvisation will open in the Irvine Co.-owned Marketplace shopping center near Campus Drive across from UC Irvine. Preliminary plans call for a one-story, 6,375-square-foot establishment that will serve dinner and drinks as well as comedy. Like the San Diego club, it will be franchised by Budd Friedman, owner of the Los Angeles Improv.
