DC Comedy Showcase

DMV Comedy Showcase

Great local comics in our 60-seat showroom. With Katherine Jessup, Dylan Meyer, Naomi Karavani, Tim Miller and Rahmein Mostafavi.

April 27lounge


DMV showcases feature excellent up-and-coming performers with ties to the DC-Baltimore area. (Every now and then we also throw in an out-of-towner for fun.) This show is in our 60-seat lounge showroom, and the comedians will perform for a total of around 90 minutes. The Improv's full food and drink menu is available.


Katherine Jessup 

Katherine Jessup hopes you like her comedy, but it's cool if you don't. (You probably will though.) Commanding stages with the winsome charm of your slightly too honest best friend, her comedy's been described as sublime, profoundly relatable, and also available for birthday parties. She performs around the country and hosts a dope podcast (Advice! with Dave & Kat).

Dylan Meyer 

Dylan Meyer is one of the fastest-rising talents in the thriving Washington, D.C. comedy scene. His eclectic style is complemented perfectly by his sharp wit and contagious energy. Always in the moment, Dylan is sure to deliver a uniquely hilarious performance every time he steps on stage. He has performed at The Kennedy Center, various comedy clubs across the country, and is a regular at the DC Improv. Dylan co-produces The Time Machine Roast and other events around Washington.

Naomi Karavani 

Naomi Karavani is a comedian and currently an on-camera correspondent and writer for the weekly comedy news show "Redacted Tonight" in Washington, D.C. She featured in a number of comedy festivals such as the Women in Comedy, Cape Fear Comedy Fest, the Underground Comedy Fest, the 202 Comedy Festival, What a Joke Fest, Laugh Your Asheville Off, Rogue Island Comedy Festival, Limestone, and the District of Comedy Festival. Before joining the Redacted team she worked as a high school history teacher in Brooklyn, New York for over five years.

Tim Miller 

Tim D. Miller is a master at engaging audiences and crafting a stand-up set that is a guaranteed good time for all. Tim’s material is based on his life experience from Waco to the White House, trying to raise a daughter, and his unique ability to find the funny in everyday life. See a clip on YouTube.

Rahmein Mostafavi  Rahmein Mostafavi wins over every crowd with charm, comic timing, and charisma. He addresses heavy social and political topics with brilliant satire, and he also offers hilarious observational comedy about life as an ethnic mutt and father of three. Rahmein has been seen on FOX, heard regularly on Sirius XM, and was featured in “The Truth About Money” on PBS. See a clip on YouTube.
