About the Comics

Lafayette Wright’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. He was featured in an episode of “Hart of the City” on Comedy Central. Lafayette won Comedy Kumite 11.1 (summer 2017) at the DC Improv, as well as Kumite 13.1 and 13.2 (winter 2018), Kumite 17.1 and 17.2 (fall 2018), and a Tournament of Champions (winter 2019).

Christine O'Dea

Christine O’Dea is a rising character in the DC comedy scene. Mixing an irreverent style with outlandish viewpoints, her comedy is an honest look into her life as a somewhat peculiar woman trying to traverse the obstacles of normal life. She is the co-host of the Quick Time Gals Podcast.

Mike Lebovitz

Mike Lebovitz began his comedy career at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He's been delighting crowds with his intoxicating brand of wild-eyed humor ever since. Lebo cut his teeth in Chicago (not as painful as it sounds), where he was a regular at Zanies Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory and Comedy Bar Chicago. He co-founded the popular showcase, Comedians You Should Know, which he brought to New York City in 2016. It has since become the weekly go-to spot to see comedy legends and up-and-comers rock the same mic. He’s been featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, and HBO’s The Deuce. Buy his debut album, TWO SLOB HOUSEHOLD, out now on Stand Up! Records.
