Now I’ve heard everything: Jon Lovitz is starting up his own comedy club at Universal CityWalk in late May. Called “The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club”, it’s his first venture into nightclub ownership. According to the news release this morning, he’ll perform regularly at the new 400-seat club and “play a leading role in booking a performance line-up that will blend veteran stars with comedy’s top newcomers. ‘This will be unlike anything anybody has ever experienced at a comedy club and it’s certain to be a smashing success. We’re offering great comedy, great food and an atmosphere of a tropical beach resort. It’s so real, the club’s indoors and I still got a tan,’ said Jon Lovitz.” Production Designer Bruce Ryan is designing the club in partnership with Jon Lovitz and his business partner Frank Kelly, one of the country’s leading top comedy club managers.
