The idea for The Recovery Show comes from the fact that the clean and sober population don't have many live entertainment options, since so much live entertainment is fueled by alcohol. This show invites people in recovery to come out and have a great time. Enjoy the big laughs emanating from surviving life's darkest moments in this funny, poignant stand-up comedy show.



Taquita Love


Hailing from Chicago, IL-  Taquita Love is just what the doctor ordered . With her expertise as a Registered Nurse, she prescribes and administers comedic relief for the soul through  stand-up comedy, motivational speaking and storytelling. Taquita has been featured on Funny or Die and Laughs on FOX.  The former graduate of The Second City LA, and UCB LA (for Improv and Sketch Writing) takes you on a journey into her world exposing her perspective on  life as a nurse and growing up in a household with a mom in recovery.   She enjoys spending time with family and friends when she isn't performing all over the at places like  The Laugh Factory Chicago and Flappers in Burbank and Claremont. She is loved by all and is sure to connect with you as she is no stranger to the things that make us all human. Her refreshing and brilliant style of storytelling and  her play on words will have you looking for more. She is not your average Nurse. She is not your average Comedian. She is just what the Doctor Ordered!


Bret Banta 


Bret Banta came all the way out from Texas to attend Cal Arts. He drove the entire fifteen hundred miles with a T.V. on his lap. Only to find out when he arrived that the dorms had no cable… or dorms, ’cause it’s F#*king Cal Arts! Bret’s a lot like a P.O.W. He’s emaciated, doesn’t brush his teeth and loves crying out for help. Bret would do anything for his twin brother. He would take a bullet for him. He also has a half brother. He would take a bullet for him too, but only from the waist down. He has been sober for 4 years and is hating every minute of it. He is scared of flying, crossword puzzles, needles, math tutors and heights.

He wrote and starred in “#Banta Shorts” featured on Funny or Die – “Fox Hole” and “Sport Monster”. Bret loves writing and stand up.


Andy Gold 


Andy Gold lives in L.A. and writes and really good jokes. The winner of the Salt Lake Comedy Festival, Andy has also been accepted in festivals and competitions all over the country, including the Boston Comedy Festival, Ventura Comedy Festival, Rocky Mountain Laugh Off, San Diego Comedy Festival, Laugh Your Ashville Off, Trial by Laughter Comedy Festival, Golden Spike Comedy Festival and Idaho Laugh Fest. Andy draws humor from all parts of his life, including his struggles with addiction. Which has made him a favorite on the recovery circuit, doing shows for recovery groups across the country. His really good jokes have also appeared on Comedy Time TV, Hulu, and Nick Mom (which is impressive since Andy is definitely not a mom). A prolific writer, Andy’s material runs the gamut from talking about being a recovering addict, to dating, to family, to working at his dad’s produce stand, and it’s all tied together by one thing, and one thing only: really big laughs.
