LA CONNECTION COMEDY THEATRE CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY

Kent Skov, who created and founded THE LA CONNECTION COMEDY THEATRE also made a genre of comedy that is as popular today as it was way back in 1977 when he started and performed on the sidewalks in Venice Ca.

In 1978 he opened the first brick and mortar theatre at the Crossroads of The World complex in Hollywood.

By 1980 he opened a second location in Sherman Oaks, where its popularity gained, Kent and his troupe would appear on national tv on a regular basis making this genre of comedy nationally a HUGE HIT!

When they opened, dubbing movies live it was called Improvision and they toured the state of California. This led to their daily segment on Thicke of the Night called Flicke of the night. The popularity of the segment led to their own TV series called Mad Movies with the LA Connection. It ran from 1985-1993. Two years in syndication, 2 years on Nick at Night where it reached over a million viewers weekly then onto MTV for 3 years. 

Their dubbing of a Sherlock Holmes movie on A&E Network led to a CableAce award for "Best Comedy Special." Like an Emmy.

While all the time, drawing big crowds to the 2 locations in Los Angeles. By 1998 they were taking the show on the road and had 178 company players. And the comedy was spreading all over the world. And even THE COMEDY STORE brings in their troupe to a sellout crowd multiple times.

In 1993 LA CONNECTION COMEDY THEATRE stretches again with KIDS IMPROV which is still running today.
