Chris Coccia's act is a perfect combination of hilarious material and the ability to present it "in the moment". Flowing seamlessly between material and improvised interaction with the crowd, Chris is able to open the audience up as he pulls them into a shared recognition of our own human-ness. Including: the offenses of unreturned facial expressions, the plague of body hair, and the confusion of the bra sizing system.
Chris keeps a full schedule working everything from the country's top comedy clubs to corporate events to colleges. In addition, Chris Coccia won this year's Purina Pet Comedy Challenge, a national event with a $10,000.00 prize. He was also invited to be part of the Great American Comedy Festival in Johnny Carson's hometown, Norfolk, NE put together by the talent coordinator of the Late Show with David Letterman, Eddie Brill. He has appeared on Comedy Central, The Game Show Network, and XM Radio. Chris is also a frequent and favorite guest on several Philadelphia based radio shows
The first show of any night is the "early" show. All other shows are "late" shows. (Most shows at the Improv are at 8 or 10:30.) Early shows are seated according to the time of your arrival. The earlier you get to the club, the better your seat will be. Late shows have assigned seating according to the 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.
