Next Wave: Sean Patton @ DC Improv Lounge
In 2017, the DC Improv celebrates its 25th anniversary by remembering the past – and looking to the future. The Next Wave series features rising stars, recommended to us (and you) by some of our favorite DC Improv headliners. These are performers that comedy fans will be talking about for years to come, and this is your chance to see them up close at one of the most respected comedy venues in America. Sean Patton is a fantastic stand-up and storyteller who made his DC Improv in September 2016 (at DC Brau presents Hopped Up). The New Orleans native has been seen on “Maron,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” and Comedy Central’s storytelling show “This is Not Happening.” In fact, Sean comes recommended to you by Ari Shaffir -- the host and creator of TINH, who called Sean’s “cumin” story the best one of season 2.
