The legendary Comedy Store crash pad right above the Sunset Strip at 8420 Cresthill Road just hit the market for $3.29 million, Curbed reported.

The 3,600-square foot Spanish Colonial style estate has sheltered a long list of comedians. During the 1980s, the four-bedroom property was notorious for its drug-fueled parties with sweeping views of Hollywood, above the parking lot of the Comedy Store.

When Mitzi Shore purchased the comedy club from her husband in the 1980s, it included the elegant home, with its numerous terraces, vaulted ceilings, and a private backyard.

Following a labor dispute between comedians and management, Shore began to offer the place as a crash-pad for comedians as a perk. Among the many beloved comics who lived there were Andrew “Dice” Clay, Dave Coulier, Yakov Smirnoff and Marc Maron. Guests included Willie Nelson, Robin Williams, and Rod Stewart and “a mountain of cocaine,” according to Maron. The comedian told Buzzfeed that after eight months of living in the house, he was “in mental trouble,” and “started realizing someone is going to die.”

 Mitzi’s son Pauly Shore was the last comic to call the place home, before Grammy award-winning producer and music executive Randy Spendlove bought it in 2002. The newly remodeled home now boasts a chef’s kitchen, new bathroom fixtures, a walk-in closet, and dark wood floors. Realtor Tori Horowitz of Compass presented the home’s expansive lower level with a separate entrance and loft-soaring ceilings as a possible studio or gym. — [Curbed] — Gabrielle Paluch
