“After an amazing five years at our Steel Plate home, we are saying goodbye this Sunday.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m an organizer and co-host of a special charity comedy event, Jokes, Japes, and Jests, that will take place in Brookland at Smith Public Trust this Wednesday night (12/12).

The show is a benefit for Words, Beats, Life — a local non-profit that sponsors a variety of arts initiatives for young people here in DC. This comedy show will also include live music and feature a handful of standup comics from here in DC. The $10 cover is a donation to Words, Beats, Life.

I’ve been thinking a lot about ways to harness the comedy community, and the performance arts scene generally, to support greater opportunities for young people here in the District to explore their artistic and creative talents. This event is an effort to do just that.”

Edgewood. We’ve talked about this neighborhood before, as recently as September, and in April.

True, it’s not quite Bloomingdale, not quite Brookland, not quite Eckington, and close to all three. (more…)
