SPOTLIGHT

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.

YOUR PERFORMERS

Sean Savoy 

Sean Savoy is a global force for comedy. Hailing from Columbia, MD, Savoy has toured the planet from Sweden and Norway to Guam and Japan and all over the U.S. of A. with his partner in comedy, the legendary Pablo Francisco. Savoy’s high-impact, rapidfire hilarity belies his mellow mood and laidback attitude. Sean recently appeared on Gotham Comedy Live, in his television debut and electrified the crowd. Combining diverse characters with a wicked wit, Savoy can reach any audience with his timeless material, while meeting his expressed goal – to bring joy with his jokes and heal hearts with humor, all while bringing as much fun to his audiences as he’s having on stage.

Jared Stern 

Jared Stern has been making complete strangers laugh at him for over a decade. From humble beginnings at a hole-in-the-wall club in Baltimore, he is now the most humble person in the world, not that he’s one to brag about it. He was recently told that his comedy was “top drawer”, which is where he keeps his socks and underwear, so that makes sense. During his career he has performed with the likes of Judah Friedlander, Richard Lewis, Tom Arnold, John Witherspoon, and Caroline Rhea.

Violet Gray 

Violet Gray, Baltimore's very own Queen LARPtress, has been a mainstay on the Baltimore comedy scene for years. She has won the Baltimore’s Next Superstar Comedian contest and is proud to be North Baltimore’s ONLY Dungeons & Dragons player.

Kandyce August 

Kandyce August’s observational humor and her highly animated stage presence make her a joy to watch. She has performed at many notable venues such as Greenwich Village Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Magooby’s Jokehouse and The Improv.

Nick Hopping 

Nick Hopping is a stand-up comedian from Richmond, Va., and recent graduate of George Mason University. He performs comedy all over Virginia and the Washington DC metro area.
