The DC Improv is teaming up with Dupont Underground, a great cultural nonprofit that is transforming the old trolley station under Dupont Circle into one of Washington's coolest performance spaces. Check out this show, just a few blocks north of the Improv. (Please note that all ticketing is handled by Dupont Underground.)
ABOUT THE SHOW: A (totally real and functioning) time machine has gone haywire, and famous people throughout history are being transported through time to the Dupont Underground. What happens when historical figures share a stage? They burn each other with hilarious jokes, just like the roasts you've seen on TV. 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 and scientists to emperors and warlords — and roast each other right in front of you. The jokes might be mean, but they're never too soon.
