SPOTLIGHT

DC Improv debut! Jenny has gone from Twitter sensation (@JennyJohnsonHi5) to touring stand-up comedian. Her laid-back charm has shined through on “Drunk History,” “The Joe Rogan Experience” and her new podcast, “Doin’ It with Danny and Jenny.” (Danny being the executive producer of “Modern Family,” by the way.) This spring she makes her DC Improv debut, headlining four shows in our lounge showroom.
