Comedy Kumite 7 @ DC Improv Lounge
Comedy Kumite (koo-mih-tay) is a one-night stand-up comedy tournament -- eight comics enter, but only one leaves! Each "match" has two comics doing five minute sets, and the audience picks the winners. It's a showcase presented with the flair of pro wrestling, but probably less spandex. Who will be our next champion?

Win either contest and you can go home with some kick-butt prizes. This event is hosted by Dana Fleitman and produced by Laura Powell, the host of #ManicPunday on Twitter and a veteran of the O. Henry Pun-Off World Championship. Admission is just $5. Details are on dcimprov.com or you can zap Laura an e-mail (dailysuitcase [at] gmail.com).
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!)
