DC Improv – Comedy Club/Restaurant in Washington, DC


The Improv Comedy Club has been recognized as one of the nation’s premiere comedy venues.

The DC Improv has a comedy school, called Comedy College, where you can learn the art of comedy. You can also hire a comic to entertain at a private party or corporate event.

All shows are for ages 18 and over. There is a two item minimum order required per person that can include a combination of food, drinks, coffee or dessert. The menu includes appetizers, sandwiches, salads and burritos.
