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).

Orny Adams @ DC Improv
When Jerry Seinfeld made the documentary “Comedian,” he tapped Orny Adams to show another part of the comedy journey: a young guy trying to fight his way to the top. Fourteen years later, Orny is still in the game, and jokes have taken him around the world. He has written for the greats, been on the big talk shows and scored acting gigs. He perfected his own style of high-octane observational comedy. And now he’s back for more shows at the DC Improv.
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).
