Hypnotist Flip Orley @ DC Improv
No two Flip Orley shows are the same, which is why he's been a DC Improv favorite since the 1990s. Flip uses hypnosis to turn audience members into the stars of the show. He leads volunteers through twisted scenarios, getting reactions that are almost beyond belief – and he does it all without humiliating anyone. Whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, Flip’s show is unforgettable. And no, we weren’t hypnotized into writing this.
Hey Frase podcast taping @ DC Improv Lounge
"Hey Frase" will record another LIVE show on Saturday, August 13, at the DC Improv at 7:30. The podcast features the new voices of DC – local media personalities Sarah Fraser and Samy K – and is a cutting-edge audio experience that is entertaining and inspiring. Listen in-person as Sarah and Samy discuss their funny and interesting stories and share their views on today’s pop culture. The live show includes surprise guests, giveaways (a Hey Frase koozie), and a meet-and-greet.
wellRED Comedy Tour @ DC Improv
After selling out the Improv in June, the "liberal rednecks" are coming back for more. This show gives you three southern comics. Trae Crowder (of YouTube fame), Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester are comedy writing partners with a bunch of viral videos to their names. They’re also top-notch stand-up comics, who are now touring the country to bring laughs to their fans in person.
Mike Daisy: The Trump Card @ Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company
$35 / $35
Returning for a limited, 1 week engagement after a sold out preview. Hurry, tickets will NOT last. Mike Daisey takes on the reigning world heavyweight of self-mythologizing, the short-fingered vulgarian who captured a nation’s heart through bullying, charm, one-syllable explosions, and occasionally telling the brutal truth: Donald J. Trump. Daisey tells Trump’s story from his earliest days, tracking him as he makes himself into a new American archetype—the very first rich man famous exclusively for being rich. In The Trump Card, Daisey weaves The Donald’s story alongside the evolution of the American oligarchy and the rise of dark money, a new ruling class empowered by a country trained to worship at a 24-carat solid-gold super classy altar. Instead of dismissing Trump as a simple con artist and huckster, Daisey breaks down what makes Trump tick… and in doing so illuminates the state of our American Dream (and how we’ve sold it out).
