Next Wave: Marshall Brandon @ 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. Marshall Brandon has been honing his craft for two decades, travelling the country and working with big-name stars. We’ve seen him here at the Improv the last few years as the feature act for Donnell Rawlings. Now Marshall gets his chance to headline one of our showrooms -- as Donnell’s official selection for the Next Wave series.
Dave Attell @ DC Improv
Dave built his following the old fashioned way: He earned it. Starting in New York, he eventually took to the road, sharing his ”very adult” comedy with audiences across the country. By the time Comedy Central signed him to do “Insomniac,” he was already one of the most popular touring stand-ups. Dave is still a presence on TV, with “Dave’s Old Porn,” “Comedy Underground” and appearances on the late night talk shows. And he continues to cement his status as one of the all-time great club comics.
Hypnotist Flip Orley @ DC Improv
No two Flip Orley shows are the same, which is why he's been a DC Improv favorite since the 1990s. Flip uses hypnosis to turn audience members into the stars of the show. He leads volunteers through twisted scenarios, getting reactions that are almost beyond belief – and he does it all without humiliating anyone. Whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, Flip’s show is unforgettable. And no, we weren’t hypnotized into writing this.
Bert Kreischer @ DC Improv
The Bert Kreischer party train keeps picking up speed. Thanks to a Rolling Stone profile, he finished college at Florida State with a reputation as the country’s biggest party animal. He spun that into TV hosting gigs and a stand-up comedy career. Bert is always on the hunt for adventure, and he loves sharing his experiences on stage. He wrote a best-selling memoir in recent years, and his 2016 Showtime special was a smash hit.
