Next Wave: Sean Patton @ 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. Sean Patton is a fantastic stand-up and storyteller who made his DC Improv in September 2016 (at DC Brau presents Hopped Up). The New Orleans native has been seen on “Maron,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” and Comedy Central’s storytelling show “This is Not Happening.” In fact, Sean comes recommended to you by Ari Shaffir -- the host and creator of TINH, who called Sean’s “cumin” story the best one of season 2.
Next Wave: Martin Moreno and Alfred Robles @ DC Improv
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. Martin Moreno and Alfred Robles have made laid-back comedy into an art form. Their good-natured teasing and riffing have wowed audiences coast to coast, both on stand-up stages and on the “Fluffy Breaks Even” TV show. They come recommended to you by Fluffy himself … their longtime touring partner, Gabriel Iglesias!
Tom Papa @ DC Improv
Tom’s a master of observational comedy, laying out his side of the story with a mix of exasperation and amusement. Respected by people throughout the entertainment industry – everyone from Jerry Seinfeld to Rob Zombie is a fan – he has landed gigs as an actor and a game show host. He’s also in charge of “Come to Papa,” a podcast that features top-notch comedic and celebrity guests. On Mother’s Day weekend, bring your mama to Papa!
Big Jay Oakerson @ DC Improv
Over the airwaves or on the stage, Jay’s relentless confidence and amazing command can win over almost anyone. Known as a master of crowd work and dirty jokes, he specializes in honest and hilarious stories from his own rock-and-roll lifestyle. You can hear Jay on “The Bonfire” on Comedy Central’s SiriusXM channel, you can see him on “What’s Your F***ing Deal?” on Seeso, or (best of all) you can see him headline the DC Improv for a third time this April.
