Comedian Jon Lovits Opens CityWalk Comedy Club Near Universal Studios Hollywood



Comedian, actor and writer Jon Lovitz, known for his roles in Saturday Night Live and over 30 movies ranging from City Slickers to A League of Their Own and The Wedding Singer, is entering a new venture with the unveiling of his comedy club at Universal CityWalk in May.


"The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club" is expected to bring lots of star power to this entertainment venue frequented by tourists to Universal Studios Hollywood, and locals enjoying great enterainment in other restaurants and clubs such as BB Kings jazz club.


Planning to perform regularly in the 400-seat club and booking performers, Lovitz adds the title of club owner to his credits that include several Emmy Award nominations.

President and Chief Operating Officer at  Universal Studios Hollywood, Larry Kurzweil, made the usual congratulatory comments about Lovitz coming on board at  The Entertainment Capital of L.A.


Dinners and appetizers from Mulberry Street Pizza, Jerry's Famous Deli and The Perfect Bite will complement a full bar in a shopping mall open free to the public as the gateway to the attraction theme park. There are over 60 entertainment-themed restaurants, nightclubs, shops, Universal CityWalk Cinemas, and many special events at this venue, but none dedicated solely to comedy.


About Lovitz: Did you know he earned his bachelor's degree from the University of California , Irvine?  The California native (born in Tarzana)  was discovered by SNL's Lorne Michaels at  The Groundlings Theater in Hollywood. His career has spanned several decades and credits are extensive. But what stands out about the professional actor and entrepreneur is that people find him to be a truly nice guy.
