The DC Improv Comedy Club
1140 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20036
The improv troupe Jive Turkey (Joe Randazzo and Chris Ulrich) has been on the DC scene since 2008, performing sharp long-form improv in front of millions of screaming fans. (Millions might be a slight exaggeration, but you get the idea.) For this show, they'll be performing in our 60-seat lounge showroom, and they're bringing along a few of their favorite troupes — Blood Pact and Press Play — to join in the fun.
Forged by the deepest of bonds, Blood Pact is an all-female independent troupe focused on using improv to identify what it really means to be human. By using a variety of characters across a series of scenes, we explore both mundane topics and the relationships between people… and how those intersect. Like when your roommate's toenails cause problems. Sometimes it gets dark. Blood Pact has been performing together since 2016 in numerous venues across this great city. Prepare to fall in love with one or more of the following ladies of Blood Pact: Marie Iwaniuk, Sasha Jacob, Sarah Spell, and Tricia Rowlison.
Press Play is a long-form improv comedy troupe based in Washington, D.C. Founded in 2010, Press Play loves performing in venues across Washington, D.C., including as a guest troupe at Washington Improv Theater and Shakespeare Theatre Company, and across the nation when we can. We've had the privilege of performing at the Baltimore Improv Festival; Boston Comedy Arts Festival; Charm City Comedy Festival; Chicago Improv Festival; LA Improv Festival; Del Close Marathon (NYC); Harrisburg Comedy Throwdown; NYC Improv Festival; SteelStacks Comedy Festival (Bethlehem, PA); Out of Bounds Comedy Festival (Austin); and District Improv Festival (DC). The performers: Eva Lewis, Jon Chesebro, Sabahat Chaudhary, J.J. Jackson
