The Washington Roast

The Washington Roast

“The show was built for people looking to disconnect, get offline, and share some laughs over the absurdity of the hyper-polarized realities of living in DC.” says Tim Kardashian, the show’s creator and host.

Kardashian cut his teeth in the entertainment business as a teenager at the Trump casinos in Atlantic City. “This sounds crazy, but I actually DJ’d Donald Trump Jr.’s 21st birthday party at the Trump Plaza when I was in high school.”

A new-comer to the local comedy scene in 2019, Kardashian quickly built a cast worthy of roasting the Republic with his parody of The White House Correspondents Dinner.

“After our very first show, a lobbyist in the audience approached me and said ‘This is the tonic this city needs.’ I’ve never looked back after that moment.”

After 10 live shows, media praise and a Prime Video feature, The Constituents have raised more than $7,000 for various causes including more than 3,000 meals for the food insecure through the Capital Area Food Bank.

The Washington Roast is a blend of standup, sketch, and improv described by Washington Post as “a bipartisan skewering."

A constituency of the DMV’s best comedians faceoff in character as politicians in an interactive roast battle and town hall. As seen on CBS, NPR, Prime Video, and on every local media’s Things to Do in DC city guide.

Politicians answer live audience town hall questions before facing off in an unfiltered roast battle. Applause determines the winner of each round in a tournament of 2024 candidates and other deplorables (Trump, Biden, Kamala, RFK Jr. and more). Hosted by Tim Kardashian.

Proceeds benefiting The Wounded Warrior Project.. A non-profit for Veterans and service members who served in the military on or after September 11, 2001, and incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound during or after service.

Featuring: Dee Ahmed, Bria Beddoe, Todd Fleming, Elizabeth Booker Houston, Tim Kardashian, Vito Prime, Rashee Raj, Rose Vineshank, Jon Yeager and guests

Seating Policies

  • Matinees, the first show of any evening in our main showroom and all shows in our lounge showroom are seated by time of arrival. The earlier you arrive, the more options you'll have. Please note that the size of your party can affect what options are available to you, as certain tables and areas are designated for larger parties.
