The DC Improv isn't just a comedy club. It's also a fantastic event space. We have everything you need to host a private party, reception, luncheon, fundraiser, corporate meeting, jamboree or hootenanny. We have a big showroom and a small showroom, and both are available for daytime and nighttime rentals. Plus, the club is conveniently close to numerous parking garages and Metro stations. Getting here is a breeze.

If you'd like to arrange a tour of our facilities or get a rate quote, call us or e-mail us using the information above.

Main Showroom

The main showroom seats up to 285 people when configured for a comedy show, and our tables and chairs can easily be rearranged to suit your event. As part of your rental, you'll have access to:

  • Our world-famous stage. Elevated three feet for great visibility, with plenty of room for tables, chairs, charts, a five-piece rock band, or a can-can line.
  • Our top-of-the-line sound system. You can play music over our house speakers by bringing along a CD or hooking an audio device right into our system. You can use our microphones for speeches, presentations or sing-offs.
  • Our video projector. You can show movies, PowerPoint presentations or slide shows  on the drop-down screen on our stage -- either with a DVD or by hooking a laptop directly into our A/V system. We have the cables you need (and if we don't have them for some reason, we're next door to a Radio Shack).
  • Our lighting system. We can adjust the lighting for the stage or the showroom floor, according to your needs.
  • WiFi internet. If you need to hook in to the interwebs, we're happy to set you up on our system.

The Lounge

The comedy lounge is a smaller showroom that seats up to 60 people when configured for a comedy show. It's great for smaller groups and more-intimate events. The lounge includes:

  • A performance stage. Elevated six inches, with plenty of space for several speakers, performers, or anything you'd need for a presentation.
  • Our top-of-the-line sound system. You can play music over our house speakers by bringing along a CD or hooking an audio device right into our system. Microphones can be run to any part of the room.
  • A video projector. The lounge projector points at our stage, and we have a pop-up screen that can be set up in seconds. 
  • The lounge lighting system. The lounge also has adjustable stage and house lighting.
  • WiFi internet. If you need to hook in to the interwebs, we're happy to set you up on our system.
  • Two private bathrooms.

Kitchen / Bar Services

The DC Improv has a full kitchen and bar. If you'd like us to provide food or beverages for your event (along with waitstaff), we can offer anything off our menu. Or we can provide buffet-style food service. (Buffet service requires groups of at least 30.)

Booking Comedians

You don't need to have a comedian to hold your event at the DC Improv. But if you do want to hire stand-ups or an improv troupe, we're happy to help you find some great performers.
