As many in the LA Comedy Community are well aware, in a catastrophic, mean, idiotic, terrible-business decision, a certain owner of the iO West decided on Feb. 13th that Feb. 24th would be the last day of the iO West. With less than two weeks notice, at the end of the month when rent is due, this certain person has put employees who have worked for this person for a decade+ in a really awful situation.
If you'd like to help out and donate some cash to the final iO West tip jar, please do. Some of my best memories are from the bar/lobby area of the iO West, I'm sure many of you share the same sentiments.
Obviously, there are a ton of folks that have been left in the lurch, our beloved iO West barstaff was the first that came to mind (#priorties).
