This Week at the Club: Jan. 8-14


Orny Adams

We're excited to have Orny Adams back at the club this week, Thursday through Sunday. His latest special debuted on Showtime in fall 2017, so we're going to see a lot of new material -- and Orny is a fantastic performer. Tickets are $17 Thursday and Sunday, and $20 Friday and Saturday.

The lounge showroom is busy Friday through Sunday. We've got DMV showcases on Friday, followed by the Comedy Kumite stand-up tournament on Saturday. Tickets are $17 for either of those nights. On Sunday, it's the Make Up Party -- we challenged funny people to come up with five minutes of comedy on the theme of music, and you can see what they came up with. Tickets are $5.

New Shows: Mike Vecchione and Brent Morin


One year, we will go 12 months without a schedule change. 2018 is not that year. Andrew Schulz took an acting job that conflicted with his shows January 18-21. We are stoked to have Mike Vecchione as his replacement, January 18-20. DC Improv regulars will remember that Mike kicked off our "Next Wave" series by headlining the main showroom in January 2017.

Another happy return: Brent Morin will be here April 26-29. He's a HIGHLY entertaining performer, and every time we see him he keeps growing as a comedian. Should be a fun week.

New Show: Dave Siegel


The plan for 2018 is to shatter the record for shows and events in our lounge. And we just added two more shows for February. Ages ago, Dave Siegel worked as a DC Improv door guy while he was in college. Now he's a professional comedian and comedy writer based in New York. He has headlined the lounge before, and if you're a fan of "America's Got Talent" you might remember him doing a performance with a baby strapped to his chest. Don't worry, it's his baby. Dave will be here on February 9. Check him out:
