We here at Comedy Hype are excited to announce our partnership with ‘The D.C. Comedy Festival’ for the event’s 2nd annual celebration. From April 9th to the 13th, 100 comedians will take over the nation’s capital for a series of comedy shows. The reason why we teamed up with this particular festival is their goal of providing a major platform for a particular underserved comedy community. To help further introduce the event, check out a quick rundown on the festival’s origins, details, and goals.


About The DC Comedy Festival

The overall purpose of the festival is to shine the light on the talent that lives and thrives in the D.C. metro area and to bring attention to a culture that gave first laughs to Dave Chappelle, Martin Lawrence, and Stephen Colbert.

How Did The Idea For This Festival Come About?

Three comedians from the D.C. metro area saw the need to break away from the politics of the local scene and created week-long festival to truly showcase not only underground comedy but provide a platform for all of the young up and coming comedians. After taking a look at the opportunities available, they decided to create a unique event to not only highlight local talent but to also give the public a chance to become a part of a community that moves every night, bar to bar, mic to mic.


‘The D.C. Comedy Festival’ is set to bring out a diverse line-up of comedians from across the country. From open mics and dinners to showcases, headliners, and brunch, the festival is guaranteed to bring out not only the talent but the laughs to everyone who attends. It will also provide an opportunity for comedians to learn how to build their brand and business during an educational workshop.

Festival Goals

With hopes to make ‘The D.C. Comedy Festival’ the biggest showcase on the East coast and eventually the country, the creators of the festival are focused on making the event something attendees will look forward to again next year.
