This Week at the Club: March 12-18


Bob Marley

We're open six days this week. Tuesday is already sold out (Jeremy McLellan in the main showroom). It's also looking like we'll have a big crowd for the free-admission Open Mic Night on Wednesday. For the rest of the week, the main showroom belongs to Brad Williams, who was one of our favorite DCI debuts from 2017. He puts on a great and memorable show. Tickets are $22 Saturday and $20 all other days.

Meanwhile in the lounge, you can see the next edition of Jive Turkey and Friends (long-form improv) on Thursday. The tickets for that are $5. The weekend headliner is Seaton Smith, a guy who started in DC years ago and is back to polish up a new hour of material. He's doing two shows on both Friday and Saturday and the tickets are $17.

New Shows: Ramon Rivas, DL Hughley extras


We have another DCI debut on the schedule. Ramon Rivas will be in our lounge on 4/20 and 4/21. Should be a lot of fun ... and let's just say his sensibility is suited to that particular weekend. Video of Ramon is below. You can also now get tickets for two added shows with D.L. Hughley, on May 3 and May 6. All the original shows we posted for D.L. are sold out so these might go quickly.
