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.

Coming to the stage ... DeRay Davis

This week, for the second time, the club has DeRay Davis in to headline. It is a high-energy show, and the reviews were GREAT in 2015. We're definitely looking at a bunch of sold out shows. Have a look.

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:

Just Added: Deon Cole

Deon Cole recorded his new Comedy Central special, "Cole Blooded Seminar," at the Lincoln Theater back in February. (Right after doing a special tune-up show at the Improv.) We've got him back for a full weekend this fall, as he headlines October 27-30. Great writing, cool delivery ... here's a preview:

Just Added: Lavell Crawford

The big man is coming back! Lavell tore it up for a bunch of shows back in December 2015. We get him a few weeks earlier in 2016 -- he'll be headlining October 14-16. If memory serves, every show sold out last time, so this is probably one of those "plan ahead" weekends. Here's a peek:

Coming to the stage ... Chris D'Elia

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 ... Friday 11, Saturday 11 and Sunday 9. Here are a few clips to entertain you as you work out the late-night logistics ...

Our schedule now boldly extends into October! We added "The Queen of Comedy" Sommore for the first weekend (9/30 - 10/2) and Judah Friedlander for Columbus Day weekend (10/6-10-8). It's great to have both of them back - Sommore last played the club in 2010, and Judah was here in November 2015 as part of his book tour. Check out some clips:

Deep Roy

roywoodjrCongrats to Roy Wood Jr. for making Variety's "10 Comics to Watch" list this year. Of course, lots of people have already been watching Roy for years. He was a great touring comic, he co-starred on "Sullivan and Son" for three seasons, and he's been on the Trevor Noah "Daily Show." So Variety is a little behind the curve on this one. Get with it, Variety.

You can see Roy performing here to close out our summer season - he headlines September 2-4.
