Comedy Kumite 7 @ DC Improv Lounge
Comedy Kumite (koo-mih-tay) is a one-night stand-up comedy tournament -- eight comics enter, but only one leaves! Each "match" has two comics doing five minute sets, and the audience picks the winners. It's a showcase presented with the flair of pro wrestling, but probably less spandex. Who will be our next champion?
