About The Hollywood Show

Started in 1979, The Hollywood Show is perhaps the best known pop culture event on the west coast. It is held four times a year at the Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel, in addition to shows in Chicago. Actors, writers, performers, collectors and celebrities all come to interact with fans, autograph photos/merchandise and take photos with their admirers. While visiting with your favorite celebrities, you can also explore the various entertainment memorabilia that dealers from across the country have to offer. You’ll find everything from movie posters & lobby cards to photos, props, costumes and more, so along with some great memories, you can take home your own piece of Hollywood history! The Hollywood Show has earned the reputation of being "THE PLACE" to meet celebrities, and is known worldwide as the perfect place for fans to get "up close and personal" with their favorite stars!

The staff of The Hollywood Show works around the clock to bring entertainers and fans together for each of our events. We have a large network of industry contacts and have built numerous celebrity relationships that always prove helpful when inviting guests to appear.

The Hollywood Show is owned by entertainment industry veteran David Elkouby and his wife Ester Elkouby.

David Elkouby was also the owner of the legendary retail establishment, Starworld until it closed in 2018. Starworld was known as Hollywood's premier destination for movie memorabilia, posters, photos, autographs, toys, action figures, concert videos, scripts, and magazines featuring all of your favorite stars: Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Beatles, and thousands more.
