Photo Recap: Dynasty Typewriter at Politicon

We were approached by Politicon about injecting a little (more) comedy into their two day convention by becoming their official comedy partners. Us? Political? We knew immediately what our platform would be. Something near and dear to our hearts. Something divisive, provocative, and very very now. DYNAPOP. The World’s ONLY Non-partisan Popcorn. We gathered a team of comedians, some of our staff, some NECESSARY elements for the booth (prize wheel, popcorn mascot suits, fake trees) and got the LA Convention Center poppin’. It was the first use of our DynaPop mascot, Poppy D, and he did NOT disappoint. Thanks to all of the performers who lent their talent to this event: The Lucas Brothers, The OC’s Skye and Nancy Collins (Carrie Clifford & Marc Evan Jackson), Drennon Davis, Lizzy Cooperman, Tad Rams, Chris Fairbanks, and Nate Craig. Plus, all of our amazing Dynasty Staffers and the Politicon crew.

Congrats To The Emmy Winners



The Creative Arts Emmys were this weekend, and the Dynasty Darlings are jumping for joy that some of our creative sweeties have been recognized by the world as the glittering jewels they are! We are so grateful to be part of an amazing community that looks really good in formal wear. Look at the Dynasty-adjacent loves who were recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts:

  •  Dan Harmon’s Rick and Morty Won Outstanding Animated Program!

  • Chris Reddis (who was just slayin' here on Saturday) took home the Outstanding
    Original Music And Lyrics Emmy for the instant classic Come Back Barack! (also, Come Back Barack FOR REAL!)

  • Our Team Coco LOVES Ruthie Wyatt and Aaron Bleyart won the Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media Within an Unscripted Program award for "Conan Without Borders" and took the stage looking sooooo good! 

  • One of the first large events we hosted was a private viewing party for HBO's Barry and we were delighted to see their team snagged an Emmy for Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series!  The hit man's a HIT, man!

  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took home 3 Creative Arts Emmys! (Mr. Kevin Pollack has the Midas touch!).

  • And huge congrats to our landlord, Jenji Kohan and the team behind Glow for their two creative arts Emmys, including a historic win for Shauna Duggins-  the first woman to win for stunt coordination!

Fictional Roast, Raised By TV, Labour Day Party, + More!



We had a great time on Saturday night hosting our new stand-up show Dynasty Tonight! and using TECHNOLOGY to take the audience and our performers  on some adventures to magical places, courtesy of our fancy new projector.

📺 Raised By TV delivered enough TV nostalgia to turn anyone from couch potato to hot potato. Also huge thanks to Jon Gabrus for wearing those pajamas. 🇺🇸

🔥Harry Potter got (fictional) Roasted and we loved it! Also, Jamie got his first taste of the enthusiasm of Potterheads... and his appetite is whetted. After a quick Google, he's been diagnosed a Hufflepuff! And in other happily combative news, Langston Kerman won the Boast Rattle! Solid gold sweetie! 
ite here…

We learned that sometimes magical places can quickly turn into fiery hellscapes. Example: an audience member wanted to be beside a beautiful (dormant) volcano in tropical Bali... Jamie accidentally pulled up a terrifying montage of exploding volcanos, and Helen Hong performed in front of it like she was headlining the apocalypse.

In other happily combative news, Langston Kerman won the Boast Rattle! Solid gold sweetie!

Monday we got to celebrate Labor Day with the theater's first potluck c/o The Voyager Institute & Vidiot's annual 5 Minute Game, a tradition we hope will come back year after year because it was seriously the most fun ever.


Sasheer Zamata, Ken Marino, Conan O'Brien, and more!



👑Sasheer Zamata Party Time was the fire emoji (🔥.) The theater was filled with great vibes, great comedy, great music, and basically we all just left feeling 100 x cooler by association.  See the full photo album here. 

📓Hollywood Handbook was SOLD OUT... but our marquee didn't state it clearly, which resulted in one of our own, the infamous Francis Cronin, being pulled up on stage and lightly bullied. He handled it like a champ. The marquee was fixed. And THAT'S the Dynasty Difference. 

🎹👻Haunting Renditions gave us an evening of delights, eerily beautiful takes on some truly bad songs. And the ultimate spooky moment was Ken Marino's duet performance of Baby Grand with... himself. He didn't miss a note ya'll! 

💛Team Coco made us COO-COO with an insanely wonderful Up & Up featuring a really promising up and comer named CONAN O'BRIEN! He did 10 minutes of hilarious, relaxed, amazing comedy that only reinforced what a gem he is. 

Dy-Lites: August 14th to 21st


A weekly recap of some of our favourite moments from Dynasty Typewriter, as captured on instagram @dynastytypewriter. 

🎩Justin Willman's live show & screening of his new Netflix series Magic For Humans was... you guessed it, magical. Binge the series! 

🍕Saturday's Dynasty Tonight show was a full-on party with a stellar lineup including the last minute addition of the amazing Demetri Martin, and an insane POP-IN from Eric Andre. AND we treated the audience to an intermission #SLICETHENIGHT pizza party!

⚔Monday mayhem served up by episode 300 of Harmontown with epic guests includingKumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon!

📒Lindsay Ames' My Diary show was a SOLD OUT delight! If you thought you couldn't love Kyle Mooney more, you'd be wrong. You'd have fallen desperately further into his abyss after watching him play a conscious hip-hop song he wrote for his high school ex-girlfriend (who he brought up on stage.)  


🔥Sunday's "We're Doing This!" with Mitchell Marchand & Renee Gauthier was so lit we ended up in the gossip rags! 

Like a BOSSSSSS! Conan stopped by to check up on Team Coco's monthly comedy extravaganza Up & Up with Moses Storm and was so chuffed he decided to do a surprise 15 minute set. 

Photo Recap: Sasheer Zamata Party Time

Sasheer Zamata Party Time is a fun variety show comprised comedy, music… and that’s it, pretty much just comedy and music! Hosted by Sasheer Zamata with special guests: Naomi Ekperigin (Broad City), Jaboukie Young-White (the Daily Show), and Emily Heller (Baby Geniuses).
