FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB
In Sept of 2008 we created Flappers Comedy LLC, for the purpose of creating a comedy club venue that would provide world class comedy and food, offer comedy workshops. We also owned another company called, Hollywood Ha Ha Fest /DBA -H2F Comedy Prods Inc. it was originally incorporated in 2000, its purpose was to present and produce live comedy events and to book and manage comedic talent in various venues around town. The corporations were conducting similar and complimentary functions so we decided to merge the two entities into one. As of Jan 1st 2010, we have dissolved the Hollywood Ha Ha Fest Inc. and merged it with Flappers Comedy LLC and created a DBA called H2F Comedy Prods. H2F Comedy Prods will continue to operate an office in Burbank and will continue to serve as the off-site booking and talent management department. Flappers Comedy LLC is owned and operated by Barbara Holliday and Dave Reinitz. The business has been producing LIVE comedy events, managing and booking comedy talent since 2000. Some of the many shows we have created and developed include, The Hollywood Ha Ha Fest (International Comedy Festival) in North Hollywood in 2000, Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Contest (14 Years), Side of Fries, Jokeyoke, Joke Signals, The Preferred Parking Comedy Tour, and Survival of the Funniest. We have produced shows at the Ha Ha Café, The Toluca Lake Tennis Club, The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Chi Chi Club, The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club and colleges all over the country. We are currently producing several shows a week at the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, CA, and at Michael’s Bar & Grill in Burbank, CA. We believe it is time to have our own venue. In an effort to provide the kind of quality of service and in order to take our business to the next level, we have created a “Franchisable” Comedy Club entity called Flappers Comedy Club and Restaurant. We truly believe that we can become competitive with the world largest comedy club chain “The Improv.”
We maintain a data base of over 50,000 audience members and have worked with sponsors including Pepsi, Comic Relief, Comedy Central, The Riveria hotel in Las Vegas, Louise’s Trattoria, Islands Restaurant, Pure Video.com the Movie “Funny People”, YTB travel.

Together Barbara Holliday and Dave Reinitz have produced such shows and festivals as Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Contest, sponsored by the Riviera Comedy Club in Las Vegas, Survival of the Funniest and the Hollywood HaHa Festival.

H2F Comedy Productions, Inc. (H2F), a Los Angeles Based Management and Development company, and Holliday is an unexpectedly funny, blue-eyed, 5-foot-2-inch dynamo. And since 1999, she has been Managing Comedians and Producing live comedy shows, festivals, and television pilots. A few of her shows include, Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Contest, sponsored by the Riviera Comedy Club in Las Vegas, Survival of the Funniest and the Hollywood Ha Ha Festival, as well as many projects for film and television. She has also been on 11 Game Shows- Is that legal?
Holliday was born in Long Island, New York to computer programmer Paul Holliday and visual artist, Madeline Baker. She believes her multi-talented capacity for performance, and business is a result of being raised in a thoroughly “left brain/right brain” trailer park family. Experience probably has much to do with her flair as well. After graduating from San Diego State University with her Teaching certification and a degree in Theater Arts (Hon.) English minor in 1989, she was headed for a high school teaching stint but ended up getting cast instead as a Kid’s Club Host for Fox on the highly-rated television program Fox Kids Club. The show allowed Holliday to hone her performance & leadership skills on some of the toughest guests around-young children and animals-while simultaneously writing and producing her daily show.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 1993, Holliday has performed in National Television commercials for SBC Global, films such as (Naked Gun 33⅓) and television shows (Friends, The Dating Game, World’s Funniest), on stage (Funny Girl, Hello Dolly, West Side Story) and as a stand-up and sketch comedian (The Comedy Store,IGBY’s, Ha Ha Café, The Improv and various other Showcases throughout Los Angeles). She has also worked as a Clown, and balloon artist at local theme parks, as well as being the CO-Creator of Uncle Clydes Comedy Contest, and Survival of the Funniest and many other reality and comedy show pilots.
Stand Up/Executive Producer
Dave Reinitz finds his roots in Ithaca New York and his current home is in Los Angeles California. He is the son of a history professor father and an artist mother. His father passed away when Dave was only 13. He spent his teenage years with his Mother and two sisters, even his cat was female. Dave did all he could to get out of the house as fast as possible. He got his first job his sophomore year of high school, as a dishwasher in a college restaurant. He graduated as his class valedictorian! This sounds much more impressive than it really is. You see, Dave attended an Alternative Community School and never received a letter grade. He was the valedictorian because he gave the graduation speech, and a fine speech it was! Dave then moved on to the State University of New York Brockport. This world-renowned institution’s alumni include Wendy O’Williams, Oliver North, and the actor who played Horseshack.
After a short stint Dave went back to Ithaca and started a career in the restaurant industry. After a few years Dave got the travel bug. So off he went, not on a cruise or extended vacation, no he simply bought a 1973-dodge Mobley traveler motor home. He packed up all he owned and off he went. The next 4 years were filled with travel and bartending jobs, from Cape Cod to Venice Beach. When the engine in the motor home blew up Dave settled in L.A. Then he got the comedy bug. Dave has been performing throughout Southern California and beyond for nine years now. He was the Assistant Publisher and Comedy Editor for Laugh-Line magazine. He has also been the Creator, Host and Producer of Uncle Clyde’s comedy contest, as well as been busy performing in Clubs and Colleges all over the country.. Dave found his comedic voice in the emotions he felt after September 11th. Since that point his comedy has taken a political twist. He lists George Carlin, Bill Maher and Chris Rock as sources of inspiration.
