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.
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.
Hypnotist Flip Orley @ DC Improv
No two Flip Orley shows are the same, which is why he's been a DC Improv favorite since the 1990s. Flip uses hypnosis to turn audience members into the stars of the show. He leads volunteers through twisted scenarios, getting reactions that are almost beyond belief – and he does it all without humiliating anyone. Whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, Flip’s show is unforgettable. And no, we weren’t hypnotized into writing this.
Snore & Roar: Great Cats @ Smithsonian's National Zoo
