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

Kandyce August

Kandyce’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. She also hosts & produces a monthly showcase through her production company, Pretty Funny Entertainment.

 
Keith Correy 

Keith Correy

Washington native Keith Correy started stand-up comedy at the age of 16, while lying to his single mother about working a normal job every night. His quiet but weird demeanor gave him the opportunity to observe his surroundings and present them on stage every night.

 
Naomi Karavani 

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.

Matty Litwack 

Matty Litwack

Matty is a weird young stand up comedian and writer. He was once a physics PhD student, but dropped out when he realized it was super boring. Matty’s writing has been published in the Washington Post, New Zealand Herald, and Scientific American. He has also performed at many comedy festivals, such as the Limestone Festival, Laughing Skull Festival, Bentzen Ball, and San Francisco Sketchfest. In 2014, Matty was a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and was the winner of the Devil Cup in New York City. Matty has also appeared on Fox’s “Laughs” and on National Geographic Channel’s “Crowd Control”.

 
Lafayette Wright 

Lafayette Wright

Lafayette’s obsessions with art and expression fuel who he is both onstage and off. He has spent close to a decade honing his skills on the DC Comedy scene, and he now has a razor sharp act and undeniable onstage likability.
