  • Tuesday, November 3The Make Up Party at DC Improv is what you want it to be. Bring a team of 4 people and pull jokes out of places you never thought were funny.
  • Tuesday, November 3Underground Comedy at Vendetta is a free weekly staple.
  • Tuesday, November 3Everything is Terrible! Legends with Wham City is happening at Metro Gallery in Baltimore. They’re compiling seven years’ worth of footage and are #reduce, #reuse, #recycling them into something hilarious. It’s the opposite of terrible.
  • Wednesday, November 4 – The Vinyl Lounge Grateful Jam is happening at Gypsy Sally’s.
  • Wednesday, November 4 – Mod Sun is coming to U Street Music Hall with New Beat Fund, Allday, and Benny Freestyles. Tickets are only $15.
  • Wednesday, November 4The Ol’ Switcharoo numero cuatro is happening at the Handsome Cock. Comedians do their own sets and then mix it up by taking on the persona of famous comedians.
  • Wednesday, November 4Fun Fun at 121 is a playfully named variety open mic night at Acre 121. There’s a simultaneous happy hour going on during the shows ($5 draft beers, baby). Also, artists can sign up in advance by emailing [email protected]
  • Thursday, November 5Den-Mate is playing Luce Unplugged. This is the coolest thing to do on a Thursday.
  • Friday, November 6You, Me, Them, Everybody is going to be live (!!!) at the Wonderland Ballroom.
  • Friday – Saturday, November 6 – 7DC Podfest is at the Wonderbread Factory’s Event Space. It’s like a conference that doesn’t feel like a conference because that word is painfully professional. Check the site, festival passes are $89, some individual shows are $10.
  • Friday, November 6 – DC Improv’s Comedy School Showcase is like a talent show for comedians (?) is that a good way to put it? Just go, it’s only $10.
  • Friday, November 6 – Last Resort Comedy’s Local Showcase is $5. That’s all.
  • Saturday, November 7 – Typecase Industries has moved (AGAIN) and they’re having a grand re-re-opening party. Third times a charm.
