If you’re a comic, or musician and interested in performing, get in touch. We might have some spots open for you later this summer.
We had our second Laughs in a Glass show at 3 Steves winery last Friday. There were a ton of other things going on that night including high school graduations, the Warrior’s game, and the rodeo. Despite all that, we still had a great turnout for the show. The comics; Pat Griffin, Just Lockwood, and Karinda Dobbins had the crowd laughing all night.
We had an awesome turnout for the first in four shows of the 3 Steves summer comedy series. The weather was perfect and the food from Rustic Roadhouse was fantastic. The lineup; Inanc Ino, Nicole Tran, and headliner Ira Summer crushed it with the crowd. See for yourself with these video clips.
On Saturday May 4, we debuted Laughs by the Barrel comedy night at Crooked Vine Winery in Livermore, CA. Our streak of sold out shows continues thanks to all the hard work from Gina & Kelli at Crooked Vine as well as the comics. We also raised money for Unravel Pediatric Cancer by donating 20% of each ticket sold.
We had a gorgeous night. Everyone who arrived early enjoyed some local barbecue and relaxed in the courtyard with some pre-show beverages.
We had a terrific line up with Ed Ruben, Austin Blaylock, and Matt Gruber. They add delivered great performances and had the crowd laughing the whole night. Stay tuned to this site for information on the next Laughs by the Barrel.

Showmentum is thrilled to announce our latest show “You’re Not the Boss of Me”, a night of MomCom from the hilarious Alexia Jackson.
