Parental Guidance is a live show where comedians Andrew Cook and Thimmesch have on their friends (some with actual credits like Comedy Central/Hulu/G4TV. others have bounced multiple rent checks recently) to watch and talk over a “classic” movie that was rated by the MPAA to be suitable for the entire family.

Christian is a pioneer of the “talking head” show, a sitcom actor and a Twitter all-star. Lately he’s been co-hosting “Black & White” on A&E, and he was a writer for “The Jim Gaffigan Show.” And most important (as far as we’re concerned), he’s one of our favorite stand-ups, delivering shows as sharp and funny as anyone on our schedule. (He even recorded one of his albums here!) – DC Improv
He’s very handsome – Jenn Tisdale
Barry is starring in a new sitcom called Downward Dog that looks VERY amusing. He also has a very adorable dog. These two things are purely coincidental. – Jenn Tisdale
Barry was also in Wolf of Wall Street. Here’s his head moving from Leo’s left shoulder over to his right shoulder.
The odds are 50/50. You can roll the dice with that special person you think is the one and end up living a happy, fulfilled life. Or you make each other so miserable you actually want to introduce blood-sucking lawyers into your relationship. When it happens to any of us, it’s a tragedy of irreconcilable differences. But when it happens to a famous athlete or movie star, it can also be wildly entertaining. You can almost hear the internet igniting into a blaze of tasteless memes and hashtags. It’s a guilty pleasure and a privilege of the majority of people leading boring, regular-ass lives, so the Power of Positive Drinking will be damned if we don’t get some our funniest comedian friends together to knock back a few cold ones and laugh at the fortunate ones’ misfortunes.

Who doesn’t want to watch a bunch of ridiculously talented and sexy ladies make you laugh about their awkward sexual experiences? Kinky. – Black Cat

Trust us when we say: this one’s not to be missed. And what is Literary Death Match? Part literary event, part comedy show, part game show, Literary Death Match brings together four of today’s finest writers to compete in an edge-of-your-seat read-off critiqued by three celebrity judges, and concluded by a slapstick showdown to decide the ultimate champion. – Black Cat

Chinese Menu Comedy Improv shows bring together the best in players from DC and beyond. This is not a “Whose Line….. ” type of show. Not at all. This all star cast will make up scenes and put on a show that will leave you asking if they planned it out ahead of time. It is a kick ass good time!! – Drafthouse DC
I LOVED HIM IN PERCY JACKSON LIGHTNING THIEF. NO RELATION I ASSUME. – Jenn Tisdale
