What is Picture This!? PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Brandie Posey & Sam Varela: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups, voice actors and more performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in the biz! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react. It may be weird. It may different. But it will be FUNNY!

Heads up to parents: Josh and
get a little blue in their live shows sometimes and the themes and the jokes sometimes run toward the morbid, racy and grown-up end of the spectrum.
Kumite Tournament of Champions @ DC Improv
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. And this show is a tournament of champions -- every competitor has won a previous kumite event. Help us name the first ever Grand Champion! Hosted by Dylan Meyer, featuring Rahmein Mostafavi, Natalie McGill, Jamel Johnson, Matty Litwack, Lafayette Wright, Wendy Wroblewski, Sean Savoy and Russ Green.
