M Bar

The Thrilling Adventure Hour began in 2005 at M Bar, a bar and supper club in Hollywood, California.

It continued at this location until January 2010, at which point it moved to Largo. M Bar was known for being a small venue with no real backstage area and with the patrons (and performers) eating and drinking during the show. Often there would be an after party featuring performances by Common Rotation and frequent interruptions by Marc Evan Jackson.
