Good Heroin is Echo Park's friendly neighborhood stand-up comedy show. It's run by four great friends -- producers Olivia Doud and Shannon Cloud, and comedians/hosts Matt Ingebretson and Dave Ross. Every single Saturday they, along with a sampling of the best comedians in Los Angeles and the country, gather in the back of Stories Books & Cafe, the cutiest and artiest and drunkest bookstore on planet earth. It's a great show, and it's a warm show. Everyone who goes to the show is best friends forever, which is definitely not true, but it does feel that way.
