What does it take to become famous for making a blog? Don’t say “dumb luck” because I can’t believe that. This Friday at the Velvet Lounge is the 3 Chord Comedy Show starring Joe Mande, founder of the most controversial pointless tumblr of all time: LATFH. If anyone can tell you how to make a name for yourself out of envious snark and cunning content appropriation it is he! But first you need an idea, so interspersed with the doings and learnings of comedy this week are some of the Best Blog To Book Deals of All Time that nobody has thought of yet or heard from in a while that you can probably steal.
THUS YOUR DAILY CALENDER OF COMEDY EVENTS IS A REALLY COOL GUY. HE LISTS COMEDY EVENTS AND DOESNT AFRAID OF ANYTHING. I AM NOT DISAPPOINT.
I went to this open mic at Liv last week and wow. I mean it usually just has like slam poets and soul singers but the crowd was super ready for anything so it’s like the perfect secret place to do/see stand-up. As long as you are not afraid of black people, or even are friends with them!
The DC Improv’s stand up comedy school is graduating this Week, and their graduation show is the ideal place to steal jokes from, whether for blog ideas or your own act. Get Em While They Hot!
The Hip Hop Theater festival presents: Late night comedy with R&B accompaniment.
But first go see a funny movie.
If you’re not going to the aforementioned 3 Chord Comedy’s Anniversary Show, SpeakEasyDC is putting on an amazing combination of Game Show and Storytelling Showcase for the Fringe Festival. Obviously storytelling is super-hot right now (which is why we had a SpeakEasy favorite, Sheldon Scott at the last Family Hemerlein show) so this will probably sell out. Hurry up and get tickets, stupid!
Jon Mulaney is adorable and will remain adorable at the Arlington Drafthouse all weekend.
