Clip from a Host Set at the DC Improv


I produce and host two annual theme shows for Halloween and Fourth of July! These unique and over-the-top events feature games, costumes and talented local comics. Check out some pictures from past shows below!

'MURRICA: Part Theme Party, Part Comedy Show, All American

Old Engine 12



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! 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.
