Ron Funches @ DC Improv
If you hear uncontrollable giggling, it’s one of two things: 1) People who are giddy to see Ron Funches. 2) Ron Funches. You usually don’t describe a grown man as cuddly, but it’s the perfect word for Ron. He’s a got a sunny demeanor, a cartoon-character voice and a body built for comfort -- and he uses that exterior to get away with saying some seriously funny, out-there things. Ron was already an underground stand-up sensation before starring on the NBC sitcom “Undateable” and crushing all foes on Comedy Central’s “@midnight.” Join his growing army of fans this summer.

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).
wellRED Comedy Tour @ DC Improv
After selling out the Improv in June, the "liberal rednecks" are coming back for more. This show gives you three southern comics. Trae Crowder (of YouTube fame), Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester are comedy writing partners with a bunch of viral videos to their names. They’re also top-notch stand-up comics, who are now touring the country to bring laughs to their fans in person.
