Improv reopens at Irvine Spectrum

Laughs are returning to the Irvine Spectrum Center with the reopening of the Improv.

Since its debut in 1987 (with up-and-coming headliner Jerry Seinfeld), the Irvine Improv has attracted the nation’s most acclaimed acts to sold-out crowds.

Comedian Bob Saget headlined reopening weekend (April 23-24). Upcoming acts include Brian Regan, Pat McGann, Pete Correale and Chelsea Handler.

Handler, known for hosting late-night talk show “Chelsea Lately” on the E! network, headlines May 27-30. After her seven-year stint with “Chelsea Lately,” she released a documentary series, “Chelsea Does,” on Netflix and hosted Netflix’s first talk show, “Chelsea.”

The Improv has implemented a layout of socially distanced seating in groups of two, four and six to maximize the safety of its guests. Face masks are required.
