The Brookledge Follies is a variety show presented in a small theater located behind a historic Spanish-style mansion near Hancock Park in Los Angeles,California.

Created by Erika Larsen in 2009, the invitation-only show was designed to showcase a wide range of variety talent on an occasional basis. The show is directed by Jeremy Kasten, hosted by Rob Zabrecky and employs the musical direction of Kristian Hoffman. Past performers have included Ann Magnuson, Neil Hamburger, the Muffs, Mike Caveney, Tina Lenert, Aye Jaye and John Lovick.[1]

Brookledge was the name of Floyd G. Thayer's home and a retail location for the (Thayer Magic Company) which included a Studio-theater that was opened to the public in 1933. When the |Larsen Family purchased the company in 1942, they swapped houses and the Larsen's moved into Brookledge.

After sitting (mostly) empty for decades, Brookledge was brought back to life in the 2000s with the launch of the "Brookledge Follies", an old-school variety-and-magic show.
