This Week at the Club: September 3-9


Arnez J

Main Showroom: We open on Wednesday for the Time Machine Roast -- comics playing historical figures and insulting eachother. Oh yeah! Tickets are just $15. The rest of the week (Thursday through Sunday) we'll be packed for shows with Arnez J. Right now the only available tickets are for Thursday; no word yet if a seventh show will be added. Tickets are $30.

Lounge Showroom: You can see eight great comedians compete in a stand-up tournament when Comedy Kumite returns on Saturday night. It's the sweet 16th edition. Tickets are $18 and there are seatings at 7:30 and 10. Sunday we have our Make Up Party game night, but that's already sold out.

This Week at the Club: Aug. 27 - Sept. 2


Steve Byrne

Main Showroom: Pretty simple this week! On Tuesday night you can watch an improv class do its graduation show at 8 p.m. That's free admission (but be aware that there's no kitchen for that show, and you order drinks at the bar). Thursday through Sunday is the triumphant return of Steve Byrne. He's doing six shows, with tickets set at $22 for Saturday and $20 all other days.

Lounge Showroom: Once again, you can check out some outstanding local comedy in our lounge this weekend, with DMV showcases running each night. There are two shows on Friday (for $17) with Haywood Turnipseed, Brittany Carney, Martin Amini, Rob Maher and LeClerc Andre.. Then on Saturday (for $20) we have two shows with Andy Kline, Sean Gabbert, Mike Brown, Alex Scott and Matty Litwack.
