Mystic Journey presents Barefoot Comedy, a monthly* comedy show in our yoga studio!

With a new lineup each month of hilarious working comedians, the show has featured the likes of Luke Null (SNL), Julia Hladkowicz (Just for Laughs), Asif Ali (Bojack Horseman, Wrecked), and Grant Cotter (MTV). But most importantly, it’s hosted and booked by Pritesh Shah. He has decent humor, great skin complexion, and the best credit score.

As we all know, laughter is great medicine and a wonderful healer. Come have a drink, share some laughs and hug a crystal. You'll leave with sore cheeks, an open heart and some new friends!

Beverages are available in the Gallery or you are welcome to BYOB.

*the first Saturday of EVERY month (unless otherwise noted)
