Their mission objective is, “…dedicated to introducing the newest and hottest comedic talent to the industry, and helping them make the connections they need to take their careers to the next level.” –from lacomedyshorts.com.
The festival began way back in the bygone days of 2009 when men were men, and women let them believe it.
It is the brainchild of famous comedian/actor, Gary Anthony Williams of “Boston Legal” and the voice of ‘Uncle Ruckus’ on Adult Swim’s “Boondocks”. Gary provided an interview toRealTV Films during the 2009 festival, joking about what he hoped people would get out of the festival. “I hope people will go home with their own cars, because under each seat, we’ve put car keys, they can go out to any car and drive away.” But seriously, he speaks about the LACS, saying, “It’s been amazing. The sponsors have really helped us out. ….. they’ve all come through more than I ever hoped they would.” Then humorously adds, “Mark Hamill owes me $0.58.”
If you look on the “Sponsors” page, you’ll notice a familiar black and gray fist under ‘Festival Patrons.’ Loyal Studios is standing right alongside some of the many respected companies supporting the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival. We do it because we love comedy, and we love the comedians that split our sides. “I am co-producing one of the projects with Snehal Patel, and we are happy to help make the event happen” says Bob Bekian, producer and owner of Loyal Studios.

Loyal Studios has seen talent of all varieties in our pre-lit studio and recently we had the pleasure of opening our doors to the advice guru, Dr. Drew Pinsky. The famous doctor, popularized by KROQ’s night time teen advice show entitled “Love Line,” made a house call to our Burbank studio. His work bringing celebrities back from the brink of personal disaster on the famed show, “Celebrity Rehab“, turns now to the teens spotlighted in MTV’s popular program, “Teen Mom“. In the interviews recorded on our pre-lit green screen stage, Dr. Drew dispenses priceless advice on sex, life, and the drastic change a baby brings to a new and unprepared family. Despite whispers, Dr. Drew was not in the house to give advice to the employees of Loyal Studios and Pro HD Rentals regarding their feelings about high definition equipment.
“We four-walled the shoot by providing the venue, crew, cameras, lights, equipment and catering,” says Bob Bekian producer and owner of Loyal Studios . “This is a revolutionary concept in the Production world,” Bekian says. “In the past, producers would need to deal with many different companies to put together a production like this. This traditional production method of multiple vendors and rates is very costly and is one of the reasons production is leaving California.” Loyal Studios specializes in servicing production requirements and keeping budgets under control with a one call service.
