SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — What's better than a night full of laughs? Perhaps one you didn't really see coming in the first place.

"Don't Tell Comedy" will host a series of secret stand-up comedy shows in North Park, La Jolla, Pacific Beach, and Encinitas from Aug. 16 - 18.

The premise of exactly what it sounds like: Guests buy their tickets online for a given show, but don't learn of the location until 12 p.m. on the day of the show. According to organizers, the venue quite literally can happen anywhere: Backyards, living rooms, a local business, steam ships, anywhere.

The lineup of comedians who will be performing is also kept a secret until they're brought on stage. And you never know who will show up. Past headlining comedians have included Ali Wong, Todd Glass, Iliza Shlesinger, Bryan Callen, and several other comedy heavyweights.

Tickets begin at $25 for general admission and $35 for a guaranteed seat. Events are also BYOB, so no need to worry about a two-drink minimum. Organizers say they do not conduct any transactions at the shows.

Tickets are available online here.
