There's extra lovin' from L.A. improv group The House of Honkeys Feb. 14. The Falcon Theatre will host a special Valentine's Day performance of Honka, Honka Burnin' Love, featuring Fred Willard ("Best in Show") as host.
Willard portrayed asinine dog show announcer Buck Laughlin in "Best in Show," his most recent role in a long comic career that began at Second City. He will introduce a series of Valentine's skits including the popular audience-participation game show, "You Bet Your Honkey," "First Date," in which the Honkeys re-enact audience members' first dates, and "The One That Got Away," during which the Honkeys take an audience member's memories of a past love and show how things could have been - for better or worse.
The Honkeys, performing in Los Angeles since 1991, include Joel McCrary, Jonathan Mangum, Dave Russell, Clare Sera, Danno Sullivan and Matt Young.
Tickets are $10. The Falcon Theatre is located at 4252 Riverside Drive. For reservations, call (818) 955-8101.
