David Sedaris @ Lisner Auditorium
$40 / $40
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. Tickets $40-$50
Kumite Tournament of Champions @ DC Improv
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. And this show is a tournament of champions -- every competitor has won a previous kumite event. Help us name the first ever Grand Champion! Hosted by Dylan Meyer, featuring Rahmein Mostafavi, Natalie McGill, Jamel Johnson, Matty Litwack, Lafayette Wright, Wendy Wroblewski, Sean Savoy and Russ Green.
