DC Improv Comedy Lounge Show - hosted in our side room

The DC Improv Comedy Club is hosting a special local comedy showcase in our Comedy Lounge. Please note this is not our main showroom. DC is notorious for launching the careers of such comedy greats as, Dave Chappelle, Lewis Black, Tommy Davidson and Wanda Sykes.

Hosted by: Emily Ruskowski

Featuring Comedians:

Tyler Richardson: Tyler Richardson made a name for himself in the DC, MD and VA area working clubs and universities but has recently taken NYC by storm with an casual tone and friendly presence. He has worked with national touring headliners such as Aisha Tyler, John Pinette, Alonzo Bodden, Reggie Watts, John Witherspoon and more.  Recently he has been invited perform in comedy festivals across the country and internationally.

Reggie Melbrough: Reggie Melbrough is a Washington, DC based comedian originally from the mean streets of Boise, ID.  For over three years he has been crafting his standup by hosting and co-producing Don’t Block the Box, Looking Glass Lounge, and being a regular host at the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse.  Reggie has won the KZ Comedy Contest and has been a semi-finalist in Pardon the Pundit and So You Think You’re funny and was featured this year at Laughing Liberally. 

Mike James: Mike James is one of the fastest rising comics in the D.C. area. His smart, energetic act pokes holes in the faulty logic of others by combining razor sharp wit with outright absurdity. He's opened for some of the best comedians in the country, including Dana Gould, Tom Papa, and Christian Finnegan.

Adam Ruben: Adam Ruben is a writer, comedian, and molecular biologist who has performed at clubs, colleges, and private venues for over a decade.  He has appeared on the Food Network's "Food Detectives," the Science Channel's "Head Rush," and currently co-hosts the Discovery Channel's "You Have Been Warned."  Adam is the author of "Surviving Your Stupid, Stupid Decision to Go to Grad School" (Random House, 2010) and writes the monthly humor column "Experimental Error" in the otherwise respectable journal Science.  His one-man show, "Please Don't Beat Me Up:  Stories and Artifacts from Adolescence," was named one of the top five solo shows of 2011 by Maryland Theatre Guide.

The DC Improv Comedy Lounge will be serving a full dinner menu and drinks. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Show is at 8 pm.

Seating Policies

The first show of any night is the "early" show. All other shows are "late" shows. Early shows are seated by time of arrival. The earlier you get to the club, the better your seat will be. Late shows have assigned seating by time of ticket purchase. The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be.

DOOR TIMES: Doors usually open at 6:30 when the early show is at 8. (When the early show is at 7, we open at 6.) Seating for late shows usually begins 30 minutes before showtime. If you purchased tickets to a late show and would like to be seated together with another party, call the Improv at 202-296-7008 and inform us ahead of time.
