Eight comedians from the DMV square off in a one-night tournament. Each "match" has two comics doing five-minute sets, and the audience chooses one person to advance. Pick your favorite and cheer them to victory! The Comedy Kumite has become a DC comedy institution, featuring some of the best talent from the local scene and crowning the first ever grand champion in October 2016.
The combatants for January 14: Franqi French, Josh Kuderna, Ross Benoit, Jheisson Nunez, Eddie Morrison, Pat Riley, Denise Taylor and Jesse Thomas. Click here for more on Comedy Kumite!
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 for an early show. (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.
