At the request of the artist, patrons for these shows must present proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 to be admitted to the venue. Proof of vaccination can be either your completed vaccination card, or a legible photo of a card saved to your phone. The last dose must be at least two weeks ago. Patrons will also be asked to present a photo ID matching the name on the card.
Millions of people have gotten to know Roy for his work on “The Daily Show,” and millions more remember his work on the sitcom “Sullivan and Son,” "Space Force" and more. But long before those gigs, Roy was known as a beast on the stand-up circuit – someone who was cracking up audiences coast to coast. He returns to the DC Improv this February for another weekend headlining on our main stage.
All sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges.
Admission / Seating Policies
- Please note: An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Senior citizens and people with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting our establishment, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
- If your party does not fill an entire table, you may be sharing a table with other patrons. The exception is when a ticket is clearly listed as "table for 2," "table for 4," etc. In those cases, your party is guaranteed to have a table to itself.
- Passes cannot be used for any show listed as a "special event."
- There is a two-item minimum per customer. This can be any combination of food items or beverages. Bottled water and soft drinks count as items. (The two-item minimum does not apply to comedy classes.)
- Patrons must be 18 or older to attend events or classes at the DC Improv. Any exceptions are clearly noted in the event descriptions on dcimprov.com.
- For our main showroom, the first show of any night is the "early" show. All other shows are "late" shows.
- Early shows in the main showroom are seated by time of arrival. The earlier you arrive at the club, the greater your seating options will be. Please note that the size of your party will also affect what seating options are available to you, as certain tables and areas are designated for larger parties.
- Late shows in the main showroom have assigned seating, and assignments are made in order of ticket purchase. The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be (i.e. closer to the stage).
- For our lounge, all shows regardless of start time are seated by time of arrival.
Roy Wood Jr.'s comedy has entertained millions across stage, television and radio. In addition to stand-up comedy, producing and acting, Roy is currently a correspondent on Comedy Central's Emmy and NAACP Award winning "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah." During his tenure, he has used "The Daily Show’s" brand of satire to shed light on serious issues including gun violence, police reform, LGBTQ+ discrimination, ICE deportations and PTSD in the Black community.
Roy expanded his already large role on Comedy Central with a comprehensive first-look deal and is developing his comedy pilot "Jefferson County: Probation." Comedy Central will also produce and air his third one-hour stand-up special this year. Wood’s second special, "No One Loves You," premiered as part of Comedy Central’s Stand-Up Month in January 2019; the special remains the network’s highest rated original stand-up premiere since his February 2017 one-hour, Father Figure. Most recently, Roy launched his podcast, "Roy’s Job Fair," produced in partnership with Comedy Central and iHeartMedia. Each week he sits down with real people from all lines of work to discuss their most memorable jobs, employment vacancies they’re looking to fill, scams they’ve run at the office, and of course, the cringe-worthy office romances.
Wood’s additional credits include "Better Call Saul," "The Last O.G.," "Space Force," "Last Comic Standing," "This Is Not Happening," and "Sullivan & Son" as well as his Comedy Central web series "The Night Pigeon" and "Stand-Up Playback." He has appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Late Night with Seth Meyers," 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," "Conan," the "Late Show with David Letterman" and HBO’s historic "Def Comedy Jam." He has also performed for the troops on numerous USO tours in the Middle East and the Pacific Islands.
Roy is a graduate of the Florida A&M University with a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism. True to his roots, he is an outspoken advocate for reshaping the image of Alabama and the American South as a whole. In 2018, he penned a New York Times piece on the subject. He is actively working with the Birmingham City Council and the Film Commission to bring more entertainment jobs to the state. During the Covid pandemic, Roy has also remained committed to fundraising for comedy clubs by supporting initiatives like TipYourWaitstaff.com and Laugh Aid.
