Dance! Dance for our amusement!

Sometimes it's the simple things. Ron Funches, who headlines the club August 25-28, is also a voice actor in the "Trolls" movie coming out November 4. That's why he's appearing in the video for "Can't Stop the Feeling," the Justin Timberlake song that's on the "Trolls" soundtrack. The video has lots of celebs in it from that movie, but there's also a clip of just Ron's dancing. Enjoy.

Just added: Donnell Rawlings

You have your Thanksgiving traditions, and we're guessing you can't invite the entire comedy club to join you. But we have ours too, and you are more than welcome to hang out. Donnell Rawlings has been headlining the club on Thanksgiving weekend for five or six years in a row, and he'll be back once again in 2016. Donnell is a DC area native who went to school at TC Williams in Alexandria. He started out doing comedy in DC before hitting it big on Chappelle's Show and other projects. Check him out:

Liberal Rednecks Redux

Last night we had the DC Improv debut of the wellRED Comedy Tour, three stand-ups who proudly describe themselves as "liberal rednecks." The place was packed - sold out on a Wednesday!

Their tour is taking them around the country, but they will be back in December. They'll be here at the club again on December 11, about a month after the election. So you know there will be some new stuff to talk about. If you missed out last night, here are a few pics ... and tickets are on sale now for the December date.

Just Added: Adam Ferrara

Adam Ferrara is currently bringing joy to the car-loving masses, as a new season of the American "Top Gear" unspools on History. He's great at wrecking cars, but we think he's even better on stage ... and we'll have him back November 3-6. Your obligatory samples:

It's gonna be BUSY this week at the club, as Chris D'Elia makes his DC Improv headlining debut. The original seven shows are sold out, so if you want to see Chris you're looking at late shows ...
