The DC Comedy Festival is brought to you by a group of local comedians who want to bring attention to and unite the comedy community in our city. From up-and-comers to national headliners, we want you to see what your city has been hiding—a flourishing comedy scene filled with some of the best, brightest, and funniest minds in the game.
This festival is meant to introduce the public to the comedy scene here in DC and give the venues that host local comedians a chance to connect with new audiences. We are going block by block, corridor by corridor, venue by venue to bring light to where the funny has been hiding
