The DC Improv isn't just a world-class comedy club. We're also a world-class comedy booking agency. For more than 20 years, we have helped people find comedians for their events.

We have connections to all the top management companies and a great network of local comics and celebrities. Need a famous national headliner for a 5,000-person corporate function? We can help you out. Need someone to come to your living room and headline a birthday party for your cat? We can handle that, too. We're committed to finding performers who are suited to your event and your budget.

We're also happy to advise you on how to get the most bang for your buck -- we'll walk you through the best ways to incorporate a comedy performance into your event.

And don't be afraid to think outside of the box! In addition to stand-up comedians, the DC Improv can help you book ...

  • Improv troupes. We work with the Washington D.C. chapter of ComedySportz, a team of great improv comedians.
  • Team-building seminars. Our experienced instructors can give your group a crash course in improv comedy, helping people work together and open their minds to a new way of thinking.
  • Hypnotist Flip Orley. The nation's leading comedic hypnotist can turn any private party or corporate event into an unforgettable evening.
  • Trivia hosts. A private trivia night gives your group the opportunity to both socialize and compete.
