We were able to secure tickets to see DeRay. The seating is very tight but it’s a small venue so what do you expect. It was a special engagement so you aren’t seating by first come, first serve. It was the order of the tickets...More

Traveled with Dad and Husband - great hospitality! The food and drink was well done - not usual cheap, crappy food. We enjoyed the comedian and the themes he presented. He was funny without any vulgarity or inappropriate comments.

I was happy with our decision to visit DC improv for Valentine’s day, we had good laughs and service was great! It was a sold out show, but they made sure everyone had a seat. Good comedy, good crowd and good times! We’ll be back

Our show was at 7PM with the doors opening at 6PM. Not familiar with the area, we walked to the venue with time to spare, getting in line at 5:40PM. Immediately after stepping in line, lots of others did too & the line was suddenly...More

We were visiting from out of town and our friends took us to D.C. Improv. The comedians were funny and worth the ticket price. The drinks are pricey though. I'd go back.

Went here for a birthday weekend and saw 3 terrific comedians. Look at the website for videos to preview the acts. Tickets are very reasonable and then they want you to buy some food and drinks - typical bar fare. Very friendly and nice night...More

Depends on the performer. Ask when buying tickets. The comedians are clearly adult content

Try to get there not too much later than when the doors open to secure a good seat. You will be served fairly quickly. If you get there later as Gareth suggested, it will take more time since the venue has had time to fill... More
