DC Improv, one of the leading comedy venues in the country, has reopened its doors to the public after remaining closed for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Erin Jackson is performing for the “Grand Reopening” from April 15 – 17, along with Lafayette Wright and Paris Sashay.
The shows are taking place at the main showroom with a reduced capacity.
“All the cool kids are going,” the club said on its website, adding that COVID-19 safety precautions are in place, and up to 50 guests will be allowed.
The “Grand Reopening” featuring Jackson, who is known for her appearances on Last Comic Standing, Ellen, and the Tiffany Haddish Netflix series They Ready, has already sold out through Saturday, April 17.
The venue handed out souvenir DC Improv masks and pint glasses for all attendees on Thursday night.
As per the District’s capacity restrictions and social distancing guidelines, DC Improv is selling tables instead of individual tickets. Sharing tables is not permitted other than within the same group of attendees. The tables are placed 6-foot apart from each other.
Everyone is required to wear face coverings, and both employees and customers will have their temperatures taken upon entrance. (Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher will not be able to enter.)
A total of 13 shows, including performances by Christian Finnegan, Steve Byrne, Jordan Rock, Carmen Lynch, Tom Thakkar, Wil Sylvince, Drew Michael and Doug Benson, are currently on the venue’s schedule through November. Click here to view the full schedule and book tickets.
