    Stand Up comedy has been around for over a hundred years. You have seen all types of comedians from all walks of life. But, what’s going on inside the comedians when on or off stage? That is where “Comics Karma“ lets you inside them. Based on the popular podcast on I tunes and other sites, “Comics Karma”, you will find out that most performers in comedy have a NON FUNNY past that they do not share. They did not have to or want to tell the details, until now. The show was created by 25 year veteran comedian/impressionist/author Jon Pirincci. Working with 100’s of comedians over the years, and working with top comedians like Jay Leno, he would sometimes hear them complain about their lives at home, or just being VERY serious. Don’t comedians laugh all the time? When many successful major comedians like Richard Jeni and Robin Williams ended their lives, it made Pirincci think of a way to make people look at comedians’ lives in a clearer way. Jon was on a mission. When you watch the “Comics Karma” show you will LAUGH, LEARN, AND LIVE through the lives of some of the top comedians in the country. They will, of course, make you LAUGH very hard. Then LEARN about some of the low points and bad times they went through in their lives. By the end of the 90 minute show, you will LEARN how the comedians got through those bad times, ending with a positive/inspirational outlook. This is a unique and inspirational/motivational show that has not been done anywhere in L.A. or the US. It will make you think about your perspective on life. When you are upset and depressed, remember the show you saw at I O West on July 18th. You will leave with your friends or family and look at each other and say, ”You know what? What are we complaining about, right??” RIGHT! Laugh,.Learn, and Live the way you want, and enjoy your one and only life. Karma will take care of the rest. Our 1st show will feature Perry Kurtz(HBO, The Tonight Show, America’s Got Talent),Grace Fraga(Steve Harvey show, Gene Simmons Family Jewels),Jon Pirincci(Warner Bros “Jersey Boys”,The Tonight show with Jay Leno)

“The Night the Holy City Zoo Closed BY ROBERT S. WIEDER ROBIN WILLIAMS was there, of course, but didn't much want to talk about it. It was a highly personal moment. He did his earliest stand-up here, met his oldest friends here, met his wife here. This is where he learned his craft, and it was a sad, melancholy night on June 19, 1984. The Holy City Zoo, a legend among America's comedy clubs, the ultimate "comedian's hangout," folded after 13 years. "I'm sad," said Robin. " We had wonderful times here, strange times here; this wasn't a haven, it was a game preserve. I remember a big black guy who'd come in with a baseball bat and say 'I'd like to audition.' But a lot of that is in the past. So many changes." Comic Perry Kurtz rented a chain saw to carve the stage wall into souvenirs. "I'd give (former Zoo manager John) Cantu's right arm to keep this club open," he said.”
