If there’s one activity or show my husband and I can always agree on, it’s comedy. We love to watch comedy in any shape or form.
We stream it, we watch it on our phones, we listen to it, we go see shows in person — bring on the comedy! But having the experience of going to see a show is always the most fun.
What’s better than going out with your partner or friends and laughing so hard your abs are sore the next day? Not much. It’s basically fun and an ab workout in one (just tell yourself that).
For those of you in the DC area this summer between July 19-21 the third annual District of Comedy Festival at the Kennedy Center is back! The Festival is a collection of stand-up, improv, sketch comedy, podcasts, and more.
Capital One is the sponsor of the festival (Capital One was my very first credit card and I still have an account with them to this day, and fun fact — Capital One’s headquarters are in the DC area!).
Good news for any of you who are Capital One card members like I am, you get a special rate for the RIOT! show — 50% off! This is the perfect show to get a group of gals together to go see because it’s a celebration of women in comedy featuring stand-up comedians, writers, actresses, sketch performers, artists, and community leaders. So get your feminist gear on, get 50% off tickets (for Capital One card members; supplies are limited) here, and go see the show!
I love that there’s a show focused on women at the Kennedy Center of all places! I’ve lived in DC for 8 years now and all of these historic buildings still give me the chills. Seeing any comedy at the Kennedy Center would just be amazing. I’ll be attending the Patton Oswalt show on July 21, but a few other shows you should look into are on Friday, July 20, Jo Firestone and Friends (6 pm), and Joe’s Pub Presents What’s Your Safe Word? (9:30 pm), and on Saturday July 21, The New Negroes with Baron Vaughn & Open Mike Eagle (6 pm), and Picture This! (10:30 pm). Find all of the performances that are a part of the District of Comedy Festival here.
