Comedy Kumite X @ DC Improv Lounge
Eight comedians from the DMV square off in a one-night tournament. Each "match" has two comics doing five-minute sets, and the audience chooses one person to advance. Pick your favorite and cheer them to victory! The Comedy Kumite has become a DC comedy institution, featuring some of the best talent from the local scene and crowning the first ever grand champion in October 2016.
The Time Machine Roast @ Dupont Underground
The DC Improv is teaming up with Dupont Underground, a great cultural nonprofit that is transforming the old trolley station under Dupont Circle into one of Washington's coolest performance spaces. A (totally real and functioning) time machine has gone haywire, and famous people throughout history are being transported through time to the Dupont Underground. What happens when historical figures share a stage? They burn each other with hilarious jokes, just like the roasts you've seen on TV. Watch some of DC's favorite local comics get into character (and costume) to play the roles of history's most famous figures -- from musicians and scientists to emperors and warlords -- and roast each other right in front of you. The jokes might be mean, but they're never too soon.
Frank Caliendo @ DC Improv
Frank’s skills as a comedian and impressionist are legendary. Millions of people know him from his work on “MADtv,” Fox’s football coverage, and now ESPN. He has entertained fans around the world with a live show that’s fast-paced, family-friendly and hilarious – and this June, he’s bringing it back to the DC Improv.
