Description:

Why so serious?! If you are like us, you have found it hard to find things to laugh about. Working to change the world is grueling and daunting work, but the pursuit of happiness is what we are fighting for! So we are making time to LAUGH! 

Come out to Shirlington and get your ribs tickled, massage your funny bone, slap a knee or two. Because LAUGHTER is an act of resistance!

Produced by Allan Sidley:

A comedian, improviser and lyricist, Allan is a jack off all trades. Allan's humor is dry, and a little wet from perspiration, usually. He toured throughout Eastern Europe in the summer of 2018 (not for comedy, just a fun fact). He did however recently headline the Church of Satire comedy club. As a producer he runs comedy shows at Busboys & Poets, Tysons Comedy Cellar, and Crystal City Sports Pub under his production company Sidley Standup. Follow him @SidleyStandup to stay up to date with shows and content.

Comedians:

Davine Ker - MC: Davine is a stand up comedian, improvisor, musical improviser, Moth StorySLAM winner, actor, visual artist and a musician. Davine paints a picture with thought provoking jokes, concepts and storytelling. She caters to your comedy appetite while sharing her laugh story with decadent wit cream. She has performed throughout the DC area and as a featured stand up in shows in New York, Florida, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, California, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Montreal, Canada.

Glenn Lawrence - Feature: Born in Philadelphia, PA and raised all over the US, Glenn Lawrence brings a unique perspective to comedy. Glenn has produced content via his LevelUp Comedy YouTube channel as well as produced comedy shows including the Legion M Open Mic at Sundance Film Festival 2019, the Level Up Comedy Pop Up at WICOMICON 2018, the Level Up Laughs Comedy show as part of the DC Comedy Festival 2019 and corporate comedy events for Paradigm Property Management. When not making people laugh Glenn can be found practicing yoga.

Kirsten Eyles: Kirsten Eyles began performing stand up 4 years ago when she discovered that the job of stay at home mom proved to be less exciting than she had been led to believe. Rejected by Bravo for their Real Housewife franchise, she seeks approval from drunken strangers in dimly lit comedy clubs. She will make you laugh with her observations on daily life, body image, depression and general misanthropy. She will NOT tell you about her children or the PTA

Jose Sanchez: Jose Sanchez performs in the nation’s capital, Washington D.C. every day to hone his comedic talents. Armed with a vivid blend of real life observations and growing up Salvadorean in the United States, he has won audiences over from coast-to-coast. Known for his high energy, on and off the stage, Jose is a comic that is sure to make a name for himself. He has performed at The State Theatre, The Laugh Factory & was part of the Underground Comedy Festival last year.

Phil MikePhil Mike is an ambiguously brown nice guy who's been performing all over the DC area for the last 4 years. He's a regular at many of the leading mics in the area, telling audiences about situations he wishes he was never in. Fans have called him "the funniest guy who didn't offend me," and his mom wishes he'd move back home. He hosts a regular weekly mic Tuesdays at The DC Comedy Loft.

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