DC Improv books local and national comedians; several comic giants, including Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld and Rosie O'Donnell, have brought the house down. This is a large club, with over 50 tables scattered in front of the stage. Shows often sell out, especially for national acts, so it is wise to buy tickets in advance. The menu includes items such as salads and Mexican entrees. Beer, wine and cocktails are available as well.

Washington Improv Theater, or WIT, is one of the only places in Washington DC to see long-form improv. For those not familiar with the term, long-form improv is a series of improvised scenes and games that the players act out based on an initial suggestion from an audience member. What this really means is that you will be non-stop laughing from when the show begins until when it ends. WIT's shows generally last between 70 to 90 minutes - that is a lot of laughing.
