Mitzi started the Comedy Store with her then husband, comedian Sammy Shore, but Mitzi got the club in their 1974 divorce and built it from the ground up to become not only the place where comedians took to the stage hoping to be discovered, the parking lot in the back of the Comedy Store became the pinnacle of Hollywood networking.
