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.”

MPD tells me the owner took the dog to an animal hospital for treatment of its injuries. It’s unclear of the status right now but will update when/if more becomes known.
“Fifth District detectives are investigating an armed robbery that occurred in the 1600 block of Franklin Street, NE at approximately 7pm on the evening of November 9th. The victim of the robbery was exiting his vehicle when he was approached by a man with a gun who took several items of value from the victim. After obtaining the items the suspect attempted to run to an awaiting vehicle, but the victim’s dog, who was in the car at the time of the robbery, jumped from the vehicle and attacked the robber.
