$15.00 - $17.00

This event is 18 and over

It's the world's greatest comedy competition! Eight great local comedians battle each other in a bracketed tournament. For every match, two comedians do five-minutes of stand-up. Then the audience cheers to decide who advances. At the end of the night, we have a champion ... and the audience ALWAYS wins.

Comedy Kumites were first held in 2003, and the current series was started by the DC Improv in 2015. Packing out showrooms every few months, the kumite has become a favorite showcase for DMV-based talent.

Participating Comedians:

Rob Maher
Naomi Karavani
Franqi French
Ross Benoit
Sean Savoy
Martin Amini
Dana Fleitman
Umar Khan
