Judah Friedlander @ DC Improv
Treat yourself to a championship-caliber night. The World Champion has been seen on “30 Rock,” in “Wet Hot American Summer,” and doing all kinds of videos for Major League Soccer. He’s a strong contender for president in 2016, and this October he’s bringing his campaign back to his hometown. (He’s a Montgomery County native!)
Gary Owen @ DC Improv
Energy and honesty have made Gary into one of the most popular touring comics in America. He’s also a crossover act unlike any you’ve ever seen – this is a guy who once won the title of “Funniest Black Comic in San Diego.” Fresh off a huge appearance at Constitution Hall in March 2016, he’ll be back in DC (where he used to be stationed during his military career) this summer. He sold out ten shows when we had him here in late 2014 …
Dick Gregory: An Evening of Comedy & Jazz @ The Kennedy Center
An Evening of Comedy and Jazz
Part of the Kennedy Center's
District of Comedy Festival
Comedy legend Dick Gregory headlines the Terrace Theater with a special evening of comedy and jazz. At venues such as New York City's Village Gate in the 1960s, comedians and jazz musicians shared the same stage--Richard Pryor and Redd Foxx routinely opened for Miles Davis and Betty Carter. Paying homage to this era, the evening will highlight a common thread shared by both genres: the artist's unique ability as a storyteller. Both comedians and jazz musicians carefully craft their performances, building up to a punchline or the climax of a song to provoke audience reaction. Gregory is joined by pianist Joe Alterman, bassist Nathaniel Schroeder, and drummer Justin Chesarek. An activist, philosopher, anti-drug crusader, comedian, author, actor, recording artist, and nutritionist, Dick Gregory first entered the national comedy scene in 1961, when Chicago's Playboy Club--as a direct request from publisher Hugh Hefner--booked him as a replacement for white comedian, "Professor" Irwin Corey. His tenure as a replacement for Corey was so successful that the Playboy Club offered him a contract extension from several weeks to three years. By 1962, Gregory had become a nationally known headline performer, selling out nightclubs, making national television appearances, and recording popular comedy albums.
Recommended for mature audiences.
