The Split Sides comedy club in Grand Theft Auto IV, as well as its DLCs, hosts a number of real-life comedians who conduct routines in front of live audiences. Only one guest is featured in each visit, and the sequence of acts are repeated after a certain amount of visits. Originally, GTA IV features only two comedians: Ricky Gervais and Katt Williams. For The Lost and Damned, however, Frankie Boyle is included as an additional guest exclusively for the DLC. Routines by Ricky and Katt have also been featured on Weazel, a fictional television channel in the game.
