Have fun in LA like only Hollywood VIPs can

Read our Showtime® Inspired City Guide to Los Angeles

Anything goes in Los Angeles, and that includes your inhibitions. Don’t pack them away when you head out to the Golden Coast for a weekend, especially if you want to cut loose and have some serious fun like the Hollywood elite.

The SHOWTIME® Original Comedy Series Episodes shines a bright light on the way Hollywood takes everything so seriously. But Episodes takes nothing seriously. This riotous comedy and its hilarious ensemble cast of characters, including Matt LeBlanc as himself, highlights the bad behavior and insanity of what’s going on around the edges in Hollywood.

We invite you to spend a weekend with us at the Sheraton Universal Hotel. Here you can live like an A-lister, even if Episodes pokes fun at how the A-list isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and play throughout the city like the locals do.

The VIP Experience at Universal Studios offers the most exclusive and rewarding access to the park. This personal tour lasts up to six hours with backlot access including the prop warehouse and a working sound stage. You’ll score priority position for rides and shows, and have breakfast and lunch in a private VIP dining room. Plus, complimentary valet parking for your rented convertible will be very LA of you.

Find the clever wit and sarcasm the Pucks ensemble is known for at the city’s best-kept comedy club secrets. Watch punsters work for laughs on small and large stages. Brew HaHa hosts a comedy show + drinking game. The Meltdown is hosted in the back of a comic book store. Comedy Living Room is a monthly set actually hosted in someone’s living room.

The Hollywood Sign can be seen throughout the city, but the photo ops are most ideal at Runyon Park and Griffith Park Observatory. Runyon is the hottest place in LA to hike or run and see and be seen. At the observatory, look into night hikes hosted by the Sierra Club. There’s no better way to see the sparkle of the city’s lights under the nighttime stars.

Celebrity sightings are bound to happen in every corner of LA. But if you want to guarantee it, reserve a power lunch at Boa Steakhouse, a networking happy hour at Nobu, or a red carpet dinner at Osteria Mozza.

Episodes is like your favorite candy—easily inhalable, deliciously naughty, and best consumed in large doses. Before you settle in for a night of binge watching, stock up at Sweet!, one of the very best candy stores in Los Angeles. This candy mini-mall has every possible thing to satisfy your sweet tooth while this Showtime comedy is sure to scratch your funny bone.
