Next Wave: Ryan Conner @ 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. Ryan Conner started his comedy career in DC. His agile comedic mind – as well as his distinctive upbringing in a huge mixed family – has caught the attention of the industry. Ryan finished in the top 10 for the 2015 edition of “Last Comic Standing,” and he is recommended to you by an executive producer of that show – the one and only Wanda Sykes!

Nat Geo & Bentzen Ball Present: You’re The Expert Live @ Grosvenor Auditorium at National Geographic
$22.50 / $25.00
What does it take to be a National Geographic Explorer? Join three comedians and a surprise guest explorer as they discover the answer for themselves. Host CHRIS DUFFY leads a comedic adventure of science and discovery full of interactive games, sketches, and hilariously misguided guesses to figure out what our explorer does all day. Chris is a staff writer for National Geographic’s Explorer and the creator and host of You’re the Expert, a live show, podcast, and public radio program on Boston’s WBUR where three comedians try to guess what a scientist studies. Last spring, marine biologist CLARE FIESELER told comedians APARNA NANCHERLA, MAEVE HIGGINS, and HARI KONDABOLU about why her research matters—but also why it once caused her to run over a set of lawn furniture with her car. This fall, who knows which cutting-edge explorer we’ll meet or what we'll find out.
