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.
