A (totally real and functioning) time machine has gone haywire, and famous people throughout history are being transported through time to the DC Improv. What happens when historical figures share a stage? They burn each other with hilarious jokes just like the Friar's Club roasts you've seen on Comedy Central, of course.
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 & scientists to emperors & warlords -- and roast each other right in front of you. The jokes might be mean, but they're never too soon. Click here for more info on the show.
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.
