Fans of Los Angeles and its comedy festivals need not worry any longer. The annual Riot LA comedy festival takes place in late January and brings the best alternative performances. Even better is Mel Brooks who's slated to open the festival with a showing of the great Blazing Saddles followed by a fan Q&A. There will also be a live version of Dr. Katz and Ali Wong will perform on Saturday at the Ace Hotel. Of course there will be dozens of more acts that have yet to be announced so hold onto your buckets. Riot LA takes place on Friday, January 20th through Sunday the 22nd.
