The Comedy Store presents

These days everybody's hysterical with talks of bail-outs, rising unemployment and bankruptcies, but what the world really needs now is plenty of "alternative hysteria": that is, good ol' knee slapping, belly busting laughter — and of course — plenty of award winning wine.

South Coast Winery Resort & Spa has the wine and has teamed up with America’s premier comedy club — the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood to bring Southern California audiences a star-studded evening each month filled with laughter and the hottest new comedians in the country — right here in Southern California’s Temecula Valley Wine Country! With three great comedians featured during each show, they're sure to be a hit with the entire audience.

Lockhart will be joined this evening by none-other than the lady of comedy herself, ranked among the top 10 Comic's to Watch, Ms. Whitney Cummings!  You've seen her on HBO's Down and Dirty with Jim Norton, HBO's Tell Me You Love Me, NESN Comedy All Stars, What About Brian, Punk'd, Best Week Ever, Last Call With Carson Daly, Cheaters.
