JB Smoove @ DC Improv
No one makes a stronger comedy impression than JB Smoove – for years, he has been stealing the show with roles on the big screen (like in “Top Five”) and the small screen (like on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”). He’s also a truly gifted live performer, whether serving as a host (like on “Last Comic Standing”) or a headliner. He’s back on our stage for the first time since 2013 … join the fun!
