About the Comics

The Constituents

Since 2019, The Constituents have created a blend of standup, sketch, and bipartisan ball-busting that is uniquely DC. “SNL on steroids” has been endorsed by The Washington Post, Washingtonian, DCist, WUSA9, Popville, and Metro Weekly.

“The show was built for people looking to disconnect, get offline, and share some laughs over the absurdity of the hyper-polarized realities of living in DC.” says Tim Kardashian, the show’s creator. Kardashian cut his teeth in the entertainment business as a teenager at the Trump casinos in Atlantic City. “This sounds crazy, but I actually DJ’d Donald Trump Jr.’s 21st birthday party at the Trump Plaza when I was in high school. I’ve even shaken the former Cheeto-in-Chief’s hand at one of his faux-beauty pageants! I had no idea I’d one day be casting someone to play him in a comedy.”

A new-comer to the local comedy scene in 2019, Kardashian quickly built a cast worthy of roasting the Republic with his parody of The White House Correspondents Dinner. “After our very first show, a lobbyist in the audience approached me and said ‘This is the tonic this city needs.’ I’ve never looked back after that moment.”

After 10 live shows and a Prime Video feature, The Constituents have raised more than $6,000 for various causes including more than 1,000 meals for the food insecure through the Capital Area Food Bank.
