Orny Adams @ DC Improv
When Jerry Seinfeld made the documentary “Comedian,” he tapped Orny Adams to show another part of the comedy journey: a young guy trying to fight his way to the top. Fourteen years later, Orny is still in the game, and jokes have taken him around the world. He has written for the greats, been on the big talk shows and scored acting gigs. He perfected his own style of high-octane observational comedy. And now he’s back for more shows at the DC Improv.
Last Podcast on the Left @ DC Improv
The Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival (presented by BYT) is back at the DC Improv! Last Podcast on the Left is a comedy podcast that covers all the horrors our world has to offer both imagined and real, from demons and aliens to cults and serial killers. Each week, three comedians investigate spooky and violent events in history using gallows humor and detailed research and prove that the true crime community isn't just for "doctors" with "expertise" in their "field." The Last Podcast is guaranteed to satisfy your blood lust and make you laugh at things you will probably feel guilty about later. Showtime is 3:30 (doors 2:30). Recommended for Mature Audiences.
