The DC Comedy Festival is meant to introduce the public to the comedy scene here in DC and give back to the community that has given so much to us and our art form. We hold a public search prior to the Festival Year and find the top 100 Comedians, Improv Groups and Sketch Comedy Groups, then invite them to come to the DC area and perform for the most deserving audience in the world.

Going into our second year, we wanted to go a little bigger than the first. Working with venues from ALL over the DC area, including DC Drafthouse Comedy Theater, Miracle Theatre, DC Comedy Loft, and Dupont Underground.

No matter where you live in the DC area there will be a show near you. Make sure come out and witness the Biggest Comedy Festival in the DC area!

DC Comedy Festival Start April 9th!
