New York City
Tony Rock @ DC Improv
Tony Rock has been headlining sold-out shows at the DC Improv for years, and this versatile entertainer has also had his share of success in front of the camera. (He was in DC in late 2016 filming the upcoming movie "Couples' Night.") As one of the most-sought hosts in the business, he’s been running the show on the revamped “Apollo Live ” and the new “The Game of Dating.” He’s an amazing talent from one of comedy’s most celebrated families – don’t miss these shows.
Tommy Davidson @ DC Improv
Tommy Davidson contributed countless unforgettable sketches to “In Living Color,” then stole the big screen in “Booty Call,” “Juwanna Man,” “Black Dynamite” and more. He continues to lend his talents to animated shows (for both Disney and the Cartoon Network), television and movie projects. And of course, he’s still touring the country doing stand-up. Washington is the city where Tommy launched his stand-up career, so we’re always proud to have him back.
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.
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!
