STAND UP COMEDY
I've been performing stand up comedy in the District and at festivals around the country since 2012! My stand up is sarcastic, witty and often includes imaginative over-analysis of everyday life. I frequently explore super original and edgy topics like my cats, dating and eating.
I have performed at the Howard Theatre and the Contemporary Jewish Museum and am proud to be the regular host of PUN DMV at the DC Improv and the Well, Well, Well Comedy Live Stream at Your Computer! I also produce and host highly elaborate theme shows for holidays.
Please contact me for booking! I can easily do a clean set to meet the needs of your audience.

Grassroots Comedy is back at Kramers for another amazing cause! The Food Not Bombs DC Chapter is a consensus-based collective that solicits food donations from grocery stores and restaurants and shares hot vegan meals, bags of groceries, and seasonal clothes with and for those in need every Saturday here in the District. This month, the DC chapter is raising funds for their sister chapters in Ukraine and Poland to help get meals to those impacted by war!
We've got a great lineup of local comics including Kevin Seefried (Kennedy Center), Adrian Rodney (DC Improv), Shelley Kim (Underground Comedy), Christian Escoto (Howard Theatre), Sandi Benton (DC Improv), and Phil Mike (Capital Laughs)!
You'll laugh so hard, you'll almost forget about World War Three! Almost.

Come out and wordplay! You're invited to watch or compete in Pun DMV, our pun contest. The night is hosted by Dana Fleitman, and it has two events:
The Tournament: An on-the-spot punning tournament featuring up to 20 people. At the start of each match, contestants are given a theme. They then take turns making up puns on the spot. People are eliminated when they're stumped. The last person standing moves on to the next round (or victory)! Anyone in attendance can compete, and you can sign up on site when you arrive.
The Freestyle: Each competitor chooses a punning theme, then prepares in advance a two-minute speech packed with puns inspired by that theme. On the night of the show, the competitors deliver their speeches on stage. We'll pick a few finalists, based on quality of puns and overall delivery. Then the audience will decide the winner by cheering.
The winners of either contest get prizes from the Improv (and eternal glory)!
