The Time Machine Roast @ Dupont Underground
The DC Improv is teaming up with Dupont Underground, a great cultural nonprofit that is transforming the old trolley station under Dupont Circle into one of Washington's coolest performance spaces. A (totally real and functioning) time machine has gone haywire, and famous people throughout history are being transported through time to the Dupont Underground. What happens when historical figures share a stage? They burn each other with hilarious jokes, just like the roasts you've seen on TV. Watch some of DC's favorite local comics get into character (and costume) to play the roles of history's most famous figures -- from musicians and scientists to emperors and warlords -- and roast each other right in front of you. The jokes might be mean, but they're never too soon.
Ryan Davis @ DC Improv
Ryan Davis is a comedian whose Internet show has generated more than 100 million views in 2016 alone. His versatile comedy style has attracted a diverse audience that spans across continents. Although Ryan has seen an enormous amount of success on the Internet, he prides himself on his ability to deliver in his live stand up shows. With sold out shows across the US, Ryan is proving to be one of comedy's new rising stars.
Nikki Glaser @ DC Improv
At a young age, Nikki has done it all. She has traveled the country as a road comic, hosted a hit podcast, and starred a few of her own TV shows – the latest being Comedy Central’s “Not Safe.” Fearless and frank, she’s bold and hilarious when talking about sex, relationships and all the other fun stuff that no one really understands. This is one of the rising stars of comedy, and this is your chance to see her live.
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!
