RIP Swinghouse

The Swinghouse, near Santa Monica Boulevard and La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles, where it all started. The place where Tony Hawk invited his crazy Australian friend to be on his show. The place where we got to know Jason Ellis, Cowfucker, Rawdog, Will, Streatch, Little Coffee Foot, Bentley, Assless Matt, Burt Backarack, Scott Green, Kevin Kraft, and many many others that have walked through those doors to make us laugh, cry, cringe, or cheer. The place where motivational speeches helped start our days and fart jokes and Women Am I Right kept us laughing through rush hour traffic. This is the ending of an era and the marking of a new, bigger, and better show. In honor of the past with anticipation to the future we asked some EllisFam what their favorite memories from The Jason Ellis Show are. Rest in peace Swinghouse.
