Description:

This February, fall in love with Jynx Comedy Night, where love is love is love. Practice self-care by taking yourself out to dinner and laughing the night away.

Jynx Comedy Night delivers high-energy, empowering comedy. Our versatile, often edgy comedians have performed at venues such as The DC Improv, Drafthouse Comedy DC, DC Comedy Loft, and at festivals including the Diverse AF Comedy Festival in NYC and the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival.

Our headliner this month, Violet Gray, has been featured on Night Train with Wyatt Cenac. Her comedy is characterized by bizarre observations on everything from race, gender and politics, to sci-fi, fantasy and tabletop roleplaying games.

Hosted by Gigi Modrich (IG: @gigimodrich), headlined by Violet Gray (IG: @chaoticviolet), and special musical act Misbehavin' Maidens (IG: @MisbehavinMaidens). Catch feelings at Jynx Comedy Night.

Our lineup will also include:

Angela Hamilton (IG: @projectthalia)

Sofia Javed (IG: @sofiajaved)

IO Duarte (IG: @clarkkunt)

Kirsten Eyles (IG: @kirsteneyles)

Additionally, we are delighted that Misbehavin' Maidens, a bawdy, nerd-folk comedy band with a love of feminist, sex-positive music and LGBTQIA+ representation, will be joining us! With so much talent sharing the stage, you’re guaranteed to have a good time.

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.

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