Next Wave: Marshall Brandon @ 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. Marshall Brandon has been honing his craft for two decades, travelling the country and working with big-name stars. We’ve seen him here at the Improv the last few years as the feature act for Donnell Rawlings. Now Marshall gets his chance to headline one of our showrooms -- as Donnell’s official selection for the Next Wave series.
John Witherspoon @ DC Improv
John Witherspoon is a comedy institution. Most people know him from TV and movies -- he’s the crazy father figure from “Friday,” “The Wayans Brothers” and “The Boondocks.” He’ll do anything to entertain his fans – he once cut a rap album, and he had his own internet cooking show. And he continues to tour as a great stand-up comedian. Spoon is endearing and honest, and he knows how to send a crowd home happy. One of our favorites!
Dave Attell @ DC Improv
Dave built his following the old fashioned way: He earned it. Starting in New York, he eventually took to the road, sharing his ”very adult” comedy with audiences across the country. By the time Comedy Central signed him to do “Insomniac,” he was already one of the most popular touring stand-ups. Dave is still a presence on TV, with “Dave’s Old Porn,” “Comedy Underground” and appearances on the late night talk shows. And he continues to cement his status as one of the all-time great club comics.
