Description:

Summer in the city getting you down? Stay cool with comedy! Jynx Comedy Night delivers high-energy, empowering comedy. Our versatile, often edgy comedians have performed at venues such as the DC Improv, Greenwich Village Comedy Club (NYC), Magooby’s Joke House, and at festivals including She Makes Me Laugh and Edinburgh Fringe Festival. With so much talent every month, you may laugh, you may cry. Either way, you’re going to have a good time.

Project Thalia will be donating a portion of the proceeds from our July show to Sanctuary DMV, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting immigrants and targeted communities, including those who are black, indigenous, Muslim, latinx, and LGBTQ+

Jynx Comedy Night is brought to you by Busboys and Poets in coordination with Project Thalia, an organization that celebrates female artists and amplifies the voices of people who identify as women, women of color, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. This is a supportive and empowering event that fosters an atmosphere of caring, compassion, and kindness – where politics and art collide with intention and fun.

Our lineup, hosted by Project Thalia founder Angela Hamilton, will include:

Eva Mozena – host of Thursday Night Therapy at the Airedale
Laura Delhomme – Bottomless Laughs
Gigi Modrich – host of Jokes That Give Back at Drafthouse Comedy Theatre
Sofia Javed – DC Improv
Randi Ben Savage – The Pregame Comedy Show
Naomi Karavani – Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Anna Phillips – Chicago Women’s Funny Festival, Artscape, Baltimore Comedy Festival

Seating is first come first served. Full menu & bar will be available throughout the event.

$10 tickets available online! [full menu + bar available throughout the event]
