Next Wave: Rick Gutierrez @ 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. For years, Rick Gutierrez has been cracking up audiences across the country with his takes on family values and marriage. Lately he’s been getting more national exposure thanks to his work on “Fluffy Breaks Even,” the most-watched show on Fuse TV. He’s recommended to you by Fluffy himself … the great Gabriel Iglesias!
Matteo Lane from MTV2's "Guy Code", "Girl Code", Comedy Central and Adam Devine's "House Party" Live at Drafthouse Comedy in DC @ Drafthouse Comedy DC
$20 / $20
From the pages of Matteo Lane... So Who The Hell is Matteo? I'm a New York-based comic who grew up Italian-American (with a little bit of Mexican) in Chicago. I learned 5 languages but still don't read books. After spending most of my life as an oil painter and opera singer, trying my best to be Maria Callas, I decided to throw it all away and tell dick jokes to strangers. So far I've had a good run! I've been able to perform at Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and New York Comedy Festival. You may have seen me on Comedy Central's The Nightly Show and Adam Devine's House Party, or maybe drunk at the papaya stand on 6th Ave. I'm also a current cast member on MTV’s GirlCode and MTV2's GuyCode. I perform all the time in New York, and more and more on the road. My goal for 2016 is to find a boyfriend and eat more vegetables.
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!

She also currently stars in Comedy Central's new hit animated series UGLY AMERICANS. Natasha was most recently seen in the hit movie HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU.

As soon as she graduated high school she moved to New York and attended the Stella Adler Conservatory. Upon receiving an additional degree in theater criticism from Hunter College she swiftly moved to Los Angeles and decided to aim her razor sharp wit at Hollywood instead. Her stand-up television appearances include two knock-out performances on THE TONIGHT SHOW w/ Jay Leno, THE LATE LATE SHOW w/ Craig Ferguson, LAST CALL w/ Carson Daly and she has signed on for a Comedy Central Presents television special and record deal.
