“Is it normal for a condom shop to have a blowout sale?” once asked veteran Westside comic Barry Weisenberg, who on Monday joins the Comics on the Spot weekly residency at The Warehouse in Marina del Rey for a singles-night performance.
Topics Weisenberg, winner of the 2006 Las Vegas Comedy Festival, tackles in his act include growing up Jewish, adventures in dating, and surviving colon cancer — less painful than trying to meet women in Los Angeles, he contends.
Now a comedy teacher in his own right, Weisenberg schooled under comedy chieftains Jeff Jena, Bobbie Oliver, and, for more than a decade, Steve Klasky (who also coached Will Ferrell).
If his name and face seem familiar, it might be because you’re originally from Ohio (he hails from Cincinnati), you watch “Funny Farm TV” (on which he’s appeared), you were either stuck on a Carnival Cruise ship or at the Improv in Irvine or Ontario Mills, according to his website.
“Comics on the Spot,” hosted by L.G. Ross, takes places from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Mondays at The Warehouse, 4499 Admiralty Way, Marina Del Rey. Call (310) 823-5451 or visit mdrwarehouse.com
