The Los Angeles County Health Department shut down the Dumb Starbucks on Monday just as the man behind the faux coffee shop in Los Feliz revealed he was the host of a Comedy Central TV show, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The shop was closed for operating without a health permit, the department told The Times. A sign was posted on the front window of the store on Hillhurst Avenue on Monday evening, saying it was closed for violations.
Comedian Nathan Fielder held a tongue-in-cheek news conference outside the storefront in a strip mall, wearing a green apron adorned with the mock logo.
