About the Show

Radio Picture Show is a monthly storytelling show at The Virgil in Los Angeles, CA. Unlike most shows we don’t specify a monthly theme, but we do ask performers to integrate a song or an image into the telling of their stories. Sometimes guests go wild and incorporate both a song and a picture. While we invite writers, musicians and artists of all backgrounds to do the show, we most often feature comics, comedy writers and performers. You can get tickets here.

The show is co-hosted and co-produced by Lauren Cook and Shauna McGarry.

The show is co-produced with Katherine Leon. We are lucky to also get regular help from Kimmie Lucas & Lucé Tomlin-Brenner.

Our website was designed by Josh Shayne.
