New York City
Godfrey @ DC Improv
Godfrey goes big. He grew up in the melting-pot city of Chicago with Nigerian parents. Before long, he learned to make all kinds of people laugh with voices, wide-eyed expressions and a high-energy style of comedy. Today, he still strives to put on a show that breaks through barriers. In addition to being a comedy club favorite, Godfrey recorded a one-hour special for Comedy Central, appeared on “Louie,” and served as a national spokesman for 7UP. Last summer, he co-hosted the gameshow "Bullseye" on FOX.
Jo Koy @ DC Improv
Jo Koy’s rise through the comedy ranks has been nothing short of spectacular. Starting out in Las Vegas, he earned a spot on “The Tonight Show,” then took off like a rocket. He was one of the most-loved panelists on “Chelsea Lately,” his Comedy Central specials wowed millions of people, and his tours have brought him to clubs and theaters around the world. As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we’re thrilled to have him on our schedule once again.

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.
