Rockin' Mic Night (Comedy + Karaoke)

We’re putting some of the DMV’s funniest people on stage with the city’s best karaoke band. They’ll tell you a story, then belt out a song. You can decide for yourself which part is more hilarious.

Plus, once the comedians have done their thing, the audience takes over! The night closes with a live-band karaoke party starring DC’s own HariKaraoke. Whether you’re rocking out on stage or as part of the crowd, it’s gonna be one hell of a good time.

Have the time of your life singing with an awesome band playing just for you! Way more fun than singing with a machine.

Wowing audiences and creating countless "rock stars" since 2010, The HariKaraoke Band has become an institution in Washington DC and beyond. Live Band Karaoke is sweeping the nation. Why? BECAUSE IT'S FUN! Singing with a live band-to a cheering crowd, is an amazing experience. Seeing friends and family giving their all to their favorite song can be unforgettable!

HariKaraoke's musicians are super-talented top players. They perform the sound and feel of every song with remarkable accuracy. They're also clever and funny! Their dynamic show includes engaging rapport with the audience, silly props and extra surprises.

Here’s how it works: Pick a tune from the distributed songbooks. Hop on stage and grab a microphone. Read the lyrics on our "ACME Word-O-Matic 5000" (band term for iPad). Sing.

  • If you purchased tickets and want to ensure that you are seated with another party that bought tickets separately, call the Improv at 202-296-7008 and inform us ahead of time.

Door Times

  • For "early" shows, doors usually open one hour before showtime. Seating for "late" shows usually begins 15-30 minutes before showtime. Check your e-mail confirmation for specifics.
