Gina picked up a lot of new fans with her recent appearance on "America's Got Talent," but she's no stranger to the spotlight -- her Amazon Prime special "The Floor is Lava" was a big hit in 2020, she has made the rounds on late night TV and she toured the country with Gabriel Iglesias. The Bronx native is bringing her good-natured attitude to the nation's capital -- these shows are her DC Improv debut!
