New Shows: Michelle Wolf and more


The big news is that Michelle Wolf will be back at the Improv in 2018. She'll be doing 5 shows on St. Patrick's Day weekend. Last year we had her in February, BEFORE the WHCA dinner and her Netflix show and all that other stuff. Those shows sold out well in advance, so don't be surprised if these shows do, too.

In other news: We added extra Monday shows with the "Girls Gotta Eat" podcast (Janaury 14) and DC Young Fly (December 10). Those DC Young Fly tickets are almost gone, though ...
