The only time we go tot he DC Improv, is to see Bob Marley, and he's always great! Even with the two drink minimum, this experience is a great bargain. The food was very good. We'll likely be going back the next time Bob Marley...More

My wife and I popped in to see Roy Wood Jr. on 12/8/18. Now, I was strongly ticked at the website when it notes that [Paraphrasing here] "the tickets are cheaper so that's why there's a 2-item minimum" to which, when you crunch the numbers...More

We were able to secure tickets to see DeRay. The seating is very tight but it’s a small venue so what do you expect. It was a special engagement so you aren’t seating by first come, first serve. It was the order of the tickets...More

Traveled with Dad and Husband - great hospitality! The food and drink was well done - not usual cheap, crappy food. We enjoyed the comedian and the themes he presented. He was funny without any vulgarity or inappropriate comments.

I was happy with our decision to visit DC improv for Valentine’s day, we had good laughs and service was great! It was a sold out show, but they made sure everyone had a seat. Good comedy, good crowd and good times! We’ll be back

We went to the late show (9:45) where you are seated as to when you bought your tickets. They cram you in pretty tight, but no to the point where you are uncomfortable. There is a 2 item minimum per person which can be a...More

Try to get there not too much later than when the doors open to secure a good seat. You will be served fairly quickly. If you get there later as Gareth suggested, it will take more time since the venue has had time to fill... More
