Welcome to The DC Improv Comedy Lounge

The lounge is home to our comedy school classes and great live performances. The lounge launched in September 2006 and immediately was recognized as a premier venue to learn, perform and see professional comedy. The lounge has provided opportunities for local and national performers including Mike Birbiglia, Jeff Dunham and Todd Glass. The intimate 60-seat theater is available to rent for private functions, corporate meetings or various comedy shows; you can hire a comedian through our DC Improv Talent & Management Agency or rent our space and produce a comedy show on your own. Call The DC Improv at 202.296.7008 for pricing information or email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
