How to Hate Yourself LIVE! at the Improv

"How to Hate Yourself" is monthly at the Hollywood Improv. We've had GREAT comics like Laura Kightlinger, Dana Gould, Dulce Sloane, Cathy Ladman, Greg Behrendt, Laurie Kilmartin. & in the testimonial vid there's a nice endorsement from my favorite, Janeane Garofalo.

HOW TO HATE YOURSELF.... THE SOLO SHOW

"How to Hate Yourself" originally launched at the Hollywood Fringe Fest as a solo show. All me, all my mess. Huffpo called it "a riotous laughfest and a complete joy." 

Directed by adult-genius Craig Anton. Here are clips from the sold-out show at Hollywood's Acme Comedy Theater. 

HOW to Hate Yourself Reviews:

Beth Littleford

"Laura House is a rare bird. She commands the stage like the incredibly talented comic that she is, but then she lets the audience in, telling very vulnerable, relatable, meaningful stories – laced with laughs, of course, so it’s a great ride. But you come away having felt something, learned something. I was moved. How wonderful and rare to come away from seeing a stand up’s show, feeling moved by it. Good stuff!"     --Beth Littleford   

H2HY CONTINUES MONTHLY at the world-famous Hollywood Improv. Come see it LIVE! Where the best comics in the country tell about all the ways they hate themselves. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll never be sad again!

I wrote How to Hate Yourself as a half-hour sit-com. Luckily, that script chosen by We for She & I got a ton of meetings for it. Katey Sagal came on as a producer and offered to play the lead. We had a staged a reading & it had all these rad people! Katey wasn't avail that night & Sharon Osbourne stepped in. Super fun!

Reviews:

"Insanely well written" --Vincent Brown (WGA, NAACP Award winner)

"...And Thank God I caught Laura House's How To Hate Yourself on the last day of Fringe - a riotous laughfest and a complete joy. I learned I don't hate myself and I love Laura House even more!"   From Huffington Post

Laura House is not just extremely likable and hilarious, she shares her life story in a breezy, forthcoming style that makes this really funny — and very forthcoming and personal — show just flies by. -- Libby Molyneaux, writer, LA Weekly

I loved the show. I thought Laura House was wonderful, I thought Craig Anton’s direction was terrific. I was so impressed with the way they were able to balance the laughter and the pathos. No easy task. Plus, I left there not hating myself as much. It’s okay, though. I don’t want my money back! Thank you! -- Cathy Ladman (comedian, Mad Men, I'm Dying Up Here)

This is a unique and funny send up of the Self Help culture as one person learns to actually help herself. Laura is both a talented and engaging performer as well as a gifted writer and this makes for a perfect combination. -- Tess Rafferty
