Flappers Comedy Club Updates


There is so much to tell you, and I apologize for not keeping you better updated, unfortunately we cannot always disclose everything that has been going on with the opening of the Flappers Comedy Club. There have been many ups and down, many setbacks, many unkept promises. But there's still hope- Some good news - we have had some new investors come on board- including Chuck Cusumano (One of the biggest Real Estate Developers in Burbank.)
What I can tell you right now is that we are deep into negotiations with the Brinker Corp to take over and Old Macaroni Grill space and a lease in the downtown Burbank area on the corner of 1st and Magnolia. We have also put in a proposal to the City of Burbank Economic Development Dept to assist us with funding. We should find out in about 3 weeks whether or not the funding will come through. In the meantime we are not letting up. To keep things rolling and as a backup plan, and or possibly a Secondary Club plan, we are still working with the Tessier folks out in the Pomona/Claremont area and are working on deal in the Claremont Packing/House. So perhaps after two years on this project- low and behold we might actually end up with two clubs. Go figure! Either way we expect and plan to open this year! More details to follow. Stay Tuned.
