What better way to celebrate our first 6 months of Dynasty Typewriter and our summer season than being called "the city's hottest new venue" by Hollywood Reporter, with big color pictures and everything! Continued gratitude to all for making this dream a sustained reality, with so much more excitement ahead.
"It may be a Tuesday in May, but comedy rooms across L.A. are uniformly packed to the rafters with boisterous fans. It begins at the city's hottest new venue, Dynasty Typewriter at The Hayworth. Tucked inside a deco theater in Westlake, the 200-seat venue was purchased in 2014 by Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan, who funded a renovation in 2017 (her Tilted Productions installed offices on the second floor). Since opening in January, Dynasty Typewriter already has featured a weekly residency from Broad City's Ilana Glazer and a week of Adam Sandler performances. The roster is curated by 41-year-old Jamie Flam — a former Hollywood Improv booker, he named the spot after his great-grandfather's typewriter store — and Vanessa Ragland, his 35-year-old business partner.
