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

This is one of the nicest comedy clubs I have visited. Parking is right next door or you can arrive a short walk from a metro station. The staff is attentive, the seating is good, and the menu has options for everyone. Worth your time...More

We had a great evening at the Improv, Tom Papa was super funny. We had beer & appetizers which were good. The service was a little slow, they could use a few more servers.

This is a small intimate club. The talent was local and from TV. The jokes were funny the crowd was young and some mature . However they require 2 items be purchased a drink and or food not counting the tickets. Nothing is really cheap...More

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
