The DC Improv opened in 1992 featuring up-and-coming comedians Ellen DeGeneres, Brian Regan, and Dave Chappelle.
From day one we've taken pride in hosting the best comedians in the business; renowned comics like Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Robin Williams, Louis CK, Mitch Hedberg, Dane Cook, Patrice O'Neal and Daniel Tosh have rocked our stage along with dozens of artists on the verge of stardom.
Whether you join us to see an internationally recognized performer or an up-and-coming comedian who just might hit it big, you'll be in good company. Chuck Brown, Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey, Gene Simmons and Chris Tucker have come to see shows here because there simply isn't a better place to watch live comedy in DC. We offer full food & beverage service throughout our shows and our intimate showroom hosts live comedy the way it was meant to be seen, up close and personal.
