Re: Starting out in LA
I haven't been in a while but I wouldn't really expect there to be much of an audience other than comedians. That's pretty standard for L.A. open mics.
I run a mic on Sunday. http://www.facebook.com/events/423890077636719/ I'm expecting a pretty light turnout since a lot of the comics that would do it are in Portland for the Bridgetown Fest, but say hi if you come. It's only for characters.
If you're generally of fan of AST approved comedy I would go to the Nerdist open mic at Meltdown Comics. I think the drawing is 7 or 7:30 but you should call or check on-line somewhere. Audience is decent here. Other Sunday mics are
Dangerfield's 3 at 3pm - Fairly new. Never been.
Rafa's Lounge at 4:30 - Fun but will probably also be light because of Bridgetown
Silverlake Lounge at 6 - This is the only non-lottery. Sign-up starts at 5:30. This is mixed comedy and music but usually fun with a crowd. Get there early to sign-up or you will be late on the list.
Hope that helps.
Just realized you were wanting to go watch. Misread your post as looking for a mic cause it's in the stage time forum. The potluck will be fine to go watch if you just want to see what the Comedy Store is like. Was going to delete the above but then I thought it might be useful to someone anyway.
