Next Wave: Novak and Laker @ 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. New York based comics Jacqueline Novak and Chris Laker are the very definition of “multi talented” – their comedy projects have included memoirs, podcasts, satellite radio programs, and more. Plus, they’re great and quirky stand-up comedians. They are recommended to you by a man who has been taking them on tour in 2017 … the great Mike Birbiglia!
John Witherspoon @ DC Improv
John Witherspoon is a comedy institution. Most people know him from TV and movies -- he’s the crazy father figure from “Friday,” “The Wayans Brothers” and “The Boondocks.” He’ll do anything to entertain his fans – he once cut a rap album, and he had his own internet cooking show. And he continues to tour as a great stand-up comedian. Spoon is endearing and honest, and he knows how to send a crowd home happy. One of our favorites!

Murder Mystery Comedy Show @ DC Improv
Die Laughing Productions is back with another hilarious whodunit Murder Mystery Comedy Show. From the people who brought you “A Merry Murder Mystery” and “The Newly Dead Game” comes “BACK TO THE '80s." You are attending an event at Glenbrook North High School in Chicago, IL. Students, faculty and alumni are gathering to open a time capsule that was planted exactly 30 years ago. But a still unsolved murder case will transport you back to that time when gas was under a dollar a gallon and cell phones were the size of a brick. This Ferris Bueller, Marty McFly and all things '80s murder mystery mashup stars 98 Rock morning show host Justin Schlegel. Joining him again will be comedians Rob Maher, Joe Robinson, Kim Ambrose, Tommy Sinbazo plus the show-stealing Erik Woodworth. However, the real stars of the show are once again, you the audience. Some of you will get to play parts in the show and all of you will guess who the murderer is. Guess right and you could win something bitchin’. Guess wrong and you’ll be a butt-head!
