The Hour of Power Hour featured the freshest voices in sketch and stand-up comedy straight from the weird heart of Hollywood! Spawned in the Improv Comedy Lab in 2011, the show eventually graduated to the main stage of the Improv Hollywood where it remained in residence for five years. Produced and hosted by Lee Keeler (Wet Hot American Summer: Fantasy Camp), The Hour of Power Hour maintained a precedent of quality with a live band, mind-blowing comedians and bonkers drop-ins that included the following: Maria Bamford, Arsenio Hall, Judd Apatow, Jenny Yang, David Spade, Scott Thompson, Kevin Pollak, Greg Proops, Paul Scheer, Baron Vaughn, Dana Gould, Matt Besser, Brian Huskey, Kyle Kinane, TJ Miller, Greg FitzsimmonsRory Scovel, Sarah Silverman, Rob Delaney, Jim O'Heir, James UrbaniakMary Lynn Rajskub, Yakov Smirnoff, Jen Kirkman, Kumail Nanjiani, Jonah Ray, Greg Behrendt, Kate Berlant, Dave Ross, Jimmy Pardo, Rich Fulcher, Dane Cook, Margaret Cho, Brody Stevens, Neal Brennan, Myq Kaplan, Laraine Newman, Ali Wong, Whitney Cummings, Brendon Small, Andy Kindler, David Koechner, Laura Kightlinger, Judy Tenuta, Erik Griffin, Three-Headed Dog, Moshe Kasher, Randy Liedtke, Sean Patton, Jackie Kashian, Eddie Pepitone, Keith Knight, DC Pierson, Rachel Bloom, Brent Weinbach, Karen Kilgariff, Dave Anthony, Brooks Wheelan, Rick Overton, Allan Havey and more! We had fun. Thank you for being there.

Our last show melted faces at Dynasty Typewriter at 2511 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles America! We were proud to present the shimmering shenanigans of Scott Thompson (Kids in the Hall), the brain laserings of Mary Lynn Rajskub (Mr. Show), the cosmic quips of Moshe Kasher (The Champs), the magnifico musings of Jenny Yang (Busy Tonight), plus tricked-out tongue of Cody Johnston (Cracked.com)!

 HPH featured live tunes courtesy of Train & D! 

Prizes via Devastator Press were won! Geoff and Amanda changed Lee's life, NBD. 

The Hour of Power Hour show was so mightily robust that this hour ran 85 minutes in length!

All of this excitement happened under the roof of recently-renovated Dynasty Typewriter, boasting upgraded, top-of-the-line AV facilities!

Bye.
