Hypnotist Flip Orley @ DC Improv
No two Flip Orley shows are the same, which is why he's been a DC Improv favorite since the 1990s. Flip uses hypnosis to turn audience members into the stars of the show. He leads volunteers through twisted scenarios, getting reactions that are almost beyond belief – and he does it all without humiliating anyone. Whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, Flip’s show is unforgettable. And no, we weren’t hypnotized into writing this.
Adam Ferrara @ DC Improv
If you have a TV, then you’ve probably seen Adam Ferrara. He’s been a regular on network shows for years – both as a talk show guest and as a regular on sitcoms and dramatic shows. Lately, he’s been conquering cable. Adam hosts the American version of “Top Gear” on the History Channel and he starred opposite Edie Falco on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” Before that, he proudly played Chief Needles on the hit FX drama "Rescue Me." And in his spare time, he's one of the best stand-ups around.
Upright Citizens Brigade: We Know How You Die! @ Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company

Have you met The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre? It’s the buzzed-about troupe that launched the careers of Amy Poehler, Kate McKinnon, Ellie Kemper, and Bobby Moynihan… and when they get to DC this summer, they’re going to do what they do best: get on stage and kill. For their first-ever multi-performance run outside of New York City, the world’s most audacious innovators in improv comedy are creating a completely new long-form show every single night just for Woolly audiences. In a whirlwind of interconnected scenes performed by a hand-picked cast of brilliant improvisers, they’re going to tell you a story about your own life. Quick heads up, though: it doesn’t end well. Price: $15 - $40
