First Comedy-Club-on-Wheels to Kick off National Tour in Los Angeles

The first-ever mobile comedy club is rolling into Los Angeles this weekend, kicking off a 17-city tour for good.
The No Fuss Comedy Bus, a refurbished school bus with room for four to six comedians to sleep and eat, will kick off a national tour Saturday with two performances in downtown L.A. Heather Pasternak, Michael Lenoci and Marlena Rodriguez are among the headliners, with special appearances by surprise guests. The pop-up is more than the typical comedy show, though, as proceeds go to Comic Relief, a charity that uses the power of entertainment to help end homelessness.
Taylor “Bugs” Streitz, a stand-up and writer on new DC series Stargirl, is the brains behind the operation, and was inspired to start NFCB after staying in a retrofitted bus with friends and deciding to combine her passions for comedy and camping. “I wanted to create something for comics to take on the road for people that don’t have comics in all areas,” she says.
