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 producer, 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, Crystal City Sports Pub, and Auld Shebeen under his production company Sidley Standup. Follow him @SidleyStandup to stay up to date with shows and content.

Comedians:


Gigi Modrich:

Gigi is a small-town girl trying to make a living in the big city. Indian law practitioner by day, comedienne and roller derby queen by night. Real-life Indian day and night. When she’s not hitting women on the track as Nasty Pelosi, she’s making a name for herself on the comedy scene. She's performed at Dangerfield's Comedy Club and Broadway Comedy Club in NYC, the DC Improv, and many other places throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. She’s also hosted at the 2018 Charm City Comedy Festival. Gigi is sarcastically optimistic and aspires to make you laugh so hard your drink comes out of your nose.

Matt Dundas:

Matt is a Washington, DC-based comedian. He's performed comedy at clubs and festivals across the country and once wrote a song about the NSA surveillance program that Glenn Greenwald called "quite pretty." Matt currently produces shows across DC with Capital Laughs and is the co-founder of Grassroots Comedy DC.

Katie Backfield:

Katie uses comedy to work through her anxiety about various apocalyptic scenarios, death, and the challenges of parenting small, slightly feral children. She has performed at venues throughout the area including the D.C. Improv Lounge, the Big Hunt and the Charm City Comedy Festival.

Dominique Grayer:

Dominique is a Virginia comic that has performed all over the DMV. He recently featured at North Carolina Comedy Zone.

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