A (totally real and functioning) time machine has gone haywire, and famous people throughout history are being transported through time to the DC Improv. What happens when historical figures share a stage? They burn each other with hilarious jokes, just like the roasts you've seen on TV. Watch some of DC's favorite local comics get into character (and costume) to play the roles of history's most famous figures -- from musicians and scientists to emperors and warlords -- and roast each other right in front of you. The jokes might be mean, but they're never too soon.
The dais for July: Mark Twain (Benjy Himmelfarb), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Bridget Geiran), Genghis Khan (Dominic Rivera), William Shakespeare (Rahmein Mostafavi), Ronald Reagan (Umar Khan), Mata Hari (Denise Taylor), Pablo Escobar (Eddie Morrison)

The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be (i.e. closer to the stage). Click here for a more detailed explanation of seating policies.
