Next Wave: Mike Speirs @ 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. Mike Speirs was a social studies teacher. You could argue that he still is, only now the lessons are delivered from a stand-up comedy stage. Mike travels the country telling jokes, and he’s recommended to you by Bob Marley – a DC Improv favorite who has worked with Mike tons of times.

Ms. Pat @ DC Improv
A rough-and-tumble childhood in Atlanta saw Ms. Pat dealing drugs and having two children before she was 16. She spent her 20s raising six kids (including four of her sister’s) and scraping to get by. But the amazing stories she collected in those years became the foundation for her honest and hilarious comedy routines. Since trying her first open mic in 2003, she has never slowed down. Pat is a favorite guest on all the biggest comedy podcasts, and in 2015 she appeared on “Last Comic Standing” and “This Is Not Happening.”
