It's no secret the Flappers Comedy Club is nearing its opening date of Sept. 11. The 1920s-inspired marquee is up and turning quite a few heads on the corner of Magnolia Boulevard and First Street, according to partners of the new dining and comedy performance venue.
"The signage is so large, people think we own the whole block," quipped Barbara Holliday, co-partner of the venture with Dave Reinitz. "It feels perfect. People are driving by commenting that we look old school — like we've been here forever. The 1920s theme and Art Deco period, which is what we are basing our design on, it really fits in Burbank, like City Hall."
The partners are going for a comedy club that serves up great entertainment and menu devised by a first-class chef that will be set an affordable price, Holliday added. They will also have classes for people wanting to become comedians and shows geared for children.
