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).

More about Bentzen Ball: The Bentzen Ball is an annual comedy festival, curated by Tig Notaro and produced by BYT. This year it is happening Oct 27-30 and some of the funniest people in the country will be there. Check out the other shows at:
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!)
Sommore @ DC Improv
The “Queen of Comedy” is coming back to the Improv. Sommore is a trailblazing performer, serving with distinction as the first female host of BET’s Comic View. Since that sensational beginning, she has toured the country countless times over, produced two of her own comedy specials and popped up in a bunch of hit movies.
