Pass By: Comedy Store, 8433 Sunset Blvd. at East La Cienega Ave., West Hollywood, CA
The Comedy Store was opened in April 1972 by comedians Sammy Shore (1927–2019), and Rudy De Luca. The building was formerly the home of Ciro's, a popular Hollywood nightclub owned by William Wilkerson, and later a rock and roll venue, where The Byrds were discovered in 1964.
When the venue reopened as The Comedy Store in 1972, it included a 99-seat theatre. As a result of a divorce settlement, Sammy Shore's ex-wife Mitzi Shore began operating the club in 1973, and she was able to buy the building in 1976. She immediately renovated and expanded the club to include a 450-seat main room.
In 1974, The Comedy Store hosted the wedding reception of newlyweds Liza Minnelli (daughter of Judy Garland) and Jack Haley, Jr., (son of Jack Haley who played "the Tin Man" in the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz). The Comedy Club signage was covered, for the evening, by signs reading "Ciro's", denoting the venue's prior identity. The event was attended by many dozens of Hollywood glitterati, including Elizabeth Taylor, Sammy Davis Jr., Cher, Bob Fosse, Johnny Carson, Goldie Hawn, Cesar Romero, Priscilla Presley and other stars, past and present. The soiree was so grand that Sunset Boulevard was temporarily blocked by police to allow Hollywood royalty to arrive in their limos unmolested by photographers and reporters.

Average 3.75 out of 5 stars based on 4 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor
Loved this tour. Had to be done when you go to LA. And we actually saw Robert De Niro which was the icing on the cake as we love that guy. The guide was very informative and all the homes were very impressive. We were dropped in Beverly Hills so that we could walk Rodeo Drive, no shopping, we couldn't afford it! But we enjoyed walking around as it's an amazing place. Found the Hop on Hop off bus stop for our return journey to Hollywood very easily. All in all, a great afternoon out.
The home tour was great - I wish we could have had a chance to take better photos though. The views of the valley were AMAZING!! It was a great trip. The shopping section was a little surprising. Based on the brochure, I was not aware that I would be dropped off by Rodeo Drive until I was already on the tour. But the driver gave me excellent instructions on how to catch the Hop On/Hop Off bus after. So although not exactly what I expected - it was a great way to spend a nice sunny afternoon and take in some of the local attractions.
