As the weeknight weatherman for KNBC Channel 4, Fritz Coleman has been alerting Angelenos to the latest weather forecasts and news for the past 33 years. Yet he’s also maintained a thriving side career as a stand-up comedian, appearing monthly at the Ice House with a string of one-man shows that have packed the house and raised much-needed funds for countless local charities. Coleman is grateful to the Ice House for giving him a platform to keep his dreams alive, even if it’s considered a fun hobby now.

“It was the first comedy club in Southern California to actually pay me to perform,” recalls Coleman. “I had performed in Buffalo, New York, in jazz clubs and decided I wanted to give the career a shot. I wasn’t as good as I should have been at first, but I worked my way up and auditioned and the Ice House hired me as a paid emcee. It was my first paying gig in SoCal and I have a great affection for them.

“Any successful club is a reflection of the class of its owners,” adds Coleman. “Even in the shallower days of the comedy business, when it all but collapsed, the Ice House continued because of the class of the owners and the allegiance of the comedians to the club because they’re treated well. And when you get a response from one of their crowds, it’s like surfing a tsunami. It’s just a great, great response.”

Coleman has written and performed two prior one-man theater acts, titled “The Reception” and “It’s Me! Dad!” He received the 2004 EMA Community Service Award for his involvement with KNBC’s “4 our Planet,” a children’s program.
