  • I just walked by there today and am very excited for the opening. Hopefully they will be able to host some talented DC acts and get a decent crowd.

  • that’s huge capacity. hope we have the local talent to pack it to the rafters.

  • Can’t wait to see the debut! Another reason why I love living in DC!

  • re: the guy opening the place. trussit. he’s the best thing DC comedy has going, and his lineups are going to put other venues to shame. and to the post about local talent . . . for sure . . . but bet your a** that the national names will be here, too. this place has been long in the making, and will be done right. for anyone interested, keep your eye on things, because i expect the opening to be the hottest ticket in town.

  • Long overdue that D.C. gets another Comedy Club. The Improv is a dump. If they offer better food and great acts, they will do well.
