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

Brian Parise 

Brian Parise got his start in DC before moving to New York City, performing on New Faces at Montreal Just For Laughs, and going on to win an Emmy for his writing on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. He performs standup in NYC and on the road, hosts one of the hottest monthly comedy shows in Brooklyn, and has been selected to perform at a number of other festivals including Laughing Skull, Laughing Devil, Skankfest, Asheville Comedy Festival, Cinderblock, and the Boston Comedy Festival.

Winston Hodges 

Winston Hodges is from a small town called Farmville (at least that is what he tells people, he is actually from a town so small he would know if you were from it!) in rural Virginia. He has spent his time working comedy clubs with his southern charm and edgy wit. His first time performing he won the competition at the Richmond Funny Bone’s Clash Of Comics, and he has never looked back. You can hear him discussing growing up in a Christian home and working with children who have special needs all while providing a fun and energetic take on all the things we want to say but never do.

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.

Herbie Gill 

Herbie Gill’s hard work and knack for presenting fresh new material earned him appearances on many stages and programs, including XM Radio, Comcast Cable, TBS' Daily Riff, PBS, Gilda's Club, and Local Point TV for ABC. Appearing at clubs, showcases and festivals across the country, his show proves he's ready to take his brand of comedy anywhere. With a shining personality, excellent stage presence and hilarious material, it's easy to see that Herbie's comedy stock is rising.

Gabe Pacheco 

With over a decade on the NYC scene, Gabe Pacheco has appeared at Caroline’s, The Creek & The Cave, and the Knitting Factory. He’s featured at the Asheville Comedy Festival and Accidental Comedy Festival. His voice is on Sirius XM, the “Katie Halper Show” and the “Eat Pray Judge Podcast”. His Album “Risky Behavior” was release March 2019 on 800 Pound Gorilla Records.
