New Shows: Deon Cole


This is a cool one ... Deon Cole is very well known for his roles on "black-ish" and its new spinoff "grown-ish," plus he starred in three seasons of "Angie Tribeca." He's got a great balance of smart and goofy in his stand-up, and we had a blast when he was here in October 2016. He's back in November 2018 for six shows, and we're pretty confident these will sell out. Plan ahead. (Nov. 15-18)

New Shows: wellRED Comedy and Couples Therapy


We've got one for the main showroom, and one for the lounge.

We're very excited to announce that the wellRED Comedy guys (Trae Crowder, Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester) are coming back to DC in a few months. They sold out six shows over Halloween weekend in 2017, they sold out some shows at the Kennedy Center last month, and they are now back on our calendar for Nov. 29 to Dec. 2.

For our lounge, we have a fun concept show making its DC Improv debut on September 20. Rahmein Mostafavi will bring "Couples Therapy: A Comedy Show" our way. Rahmein leads a chat between willing audience members and his panel of comedians and guests. And the subject is relationships and dating. So there's endless source material. Tickets are just $10 if you want to check it out.

On the dais ...


If you've never seen a Time Machine Roast, you should. Seven comics are going to get in costume and in character, posing as famous people from all eras. Then they'll relentlessly insult each other. It's as good as it sounds. The next show is September 5 and we just got our hands on the lineup ...

This Week at the Club: August 6-12


Guys We Fd

Main Showroom: It's a double DC Improv debut, as Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne Fisher are bringing their stand-up tour to the club for the first time. They're well known as the creators of the "Guys We F****" podcast. Tickets are $25-$27, and the shows are Thursday through Sunday (and we already sold out on Thursday).

Lounge Showroom: We have a private event on Friday, so your lounge options this week are all on Saturday evening. At 7:30 there's an "all ages" improv comedy show with the ComedySportz troupe. Then those improvisers stick around for Late Night Improv at 9:45, when you have to be 18 or older to attend. Tickets for either of those shows are $15.

New Shows / Schedule Changes


We'll start with the bad news: Two cancellations came across our desks this morning. Chris Hardwick won't be coming in November, and Tommy Davidson pulled out of his December dates. We'll keep you posted on any replacements.

And now it's on to the new ... Challenge Mania Live is a variety show / podcast taping featuring two stars from MTV's "The Challenge." They'll be here for an afternoon show on October 13. We have also renewed our Thanksgiving tradition -- Donnell Rawlings is coming back yet again for six shows, the Friday through Sunday after turkey day. And looking at the very end of the year, our New Year's Eve headliner (and a few nights before) is Dov Davidoff. We'll have NYE on sale shortly, but December 28-30 is on sale now.
