About SPRUNG!

About Improbable Comedy:
Founded by social-worker-turned-comedy-producer Kim Levone, Improbable Comedy has hosted more than 150 shows in local venues around the DMV. The goal has been to transform the industry by giving the mic to hilarious comedians who have been underrepresented on stage. Since our first show at Vicino's restaurant in 2012, we have brought big laughs to theatres, bars, swanky clubs, and people's homes. We now have regular shows at Busboys & Poets and the Arts Barn as well as bigger events with the Montgomery Parks Department and at the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre.

 

About Grassroots Comedy Incubator Program:

Grassroots Comedy believes that amplifying the diverse voices of the DMV is critical. In the spring of 2023, Grassroots created and launched a new incubator program for women and non-binary folx. The group meets for weekly workshops, getting the opportunity to network with other comedians (peers who are new in the space as well as more seasoned comics), explore joke structure and formats, and – most of all – to build community and workshop material. The Incubator is taught by Dana Fleitman and guest instructors and culminates in a showcase in DC. https://www.grassrootscomedy.org/incubator.html

 

Please Note: Due to the nature of live performance, we sometimes have to make a last minute change in the lineup of performers. We appreciate your understanding and patience. It is always our aim to present a great show for our audience.

 

**Important: Please note the venue's covid policies.**
