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

Kandace Saunders 

Kandace Saunders made her comedic debut in 2006 during a comedy competition at the DC Improv. Although, she didn’t win, she didn’t get booed, and people laughed. So for Kandace, that was enough to pursue a career in standup comedy. Kandace’s sarcasm, and quick wit, coupled with her ability to turn life into “extremely laughable situations”, has allowed her to become one of today’s fastest rising comedians.

Wilfred Padua 

Wilfred Padua is a comedian in New York who has an MFA in Writing from some place in Chicago. He is the co-host of the Miss Me With That podcast, and has performed at Bumbershoot, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Summer Meltdown Music Festival, and the Laughing Devil Comedy Festival in NYC. He has been featured on NPR, Sirius XM, and was named one of the 50 Best Undiscovered Comedians in America by Thrillist. He's much cuter in person.

Kasaun Wilson 

Kasaun Wilson (@TheLifeofKay) is quickly becoming a household name from his appearances on NBC's Last Comic Standing, TVOne, BET, ABC, Off Broadway production of Keenan Scott's "Thoughts of a Colored Man" chereographed by Jenny Parsinen and Taye Diggs, and most recently on TRUTV's Laff Tracks. At the end of the day, he's just an Howard University artist and the same kid from Jersey City, NJ.

Matt Brown 

Matt Brown is a comedian from Baltimore who started his comedy career at 19. He is a regular at Magooby’s Joke House and the Baltimore Comedy Factory. He has opened for comedians Tom Segura, Tony Woods, Tommy Johnagin, Michael Winslow and more.

LeClerc Andre 

LeClerc Andre is a stand-up comedian from New York who is quickly building a name for himself. His quick wit and charm can be seen dazzling clubs and colleges across the country. LeClerc was featured this year at Just For Laughs Comedy Festival as one of the New Faces of Comedy. Make sure to keep an eye out for this budding star.
