Would you like to laugh the night away?

If so, head to one of these comedy clubs near our Kingstowne apartments where the country’s best comedians take to the stage:

DC Improv Comedy Club

The DC Improv, located 24 minutes away, is the country’s top venue for all of your comedy needs. It hosts both local celebrities and national touring acts. Owner Allyson got her start at the club as a server in 1998. She has since made a name for herself in the comedy industry and welcomes everyone from Wanda Sykes to Dave Chappelle. 

The DC Improv also offers exciting classes for amateur comics. Students progress from learning basic skills to the finer points of advanced improv. The sessions run for six weeks and are led by highly skilled instructors. 

Capital Laughs

Capital Laughs features a group of comedians dedicated to bringing something fresh and exciting to DC’s arts scene. They offer free nightly performances, as well as an all-star showcase. The club earns recognition from local publications, and the comics have everyone laughing from start to finish. Most of the shows are 21 and over, and visitors enjoy the “crazy good beers.” Capital Laughs is just 19 minutes away by car.

Dojo Comedy

When Dojo Comedy opened, it became DC’s first club dedicated to improv and sketch comedy. It’s where locals showcase their skills on Friday and Saturday nights. They strive to bring new thoughts to the stage, and each routine is different from the last. 

Like the DC Improv, Dojo Comedy also offers classes throughout the year. Improv 1 centers around learning listening techniques, technical elements, and the fundamental skills of agreement. It meets every Wednesday evening, and no previous experience is necessary. Dojo Comedy is a half-hour away.

Along with these comedy clubs, our apartments in Alexandria, VA, are also near premier shopping and dining destinations. To become a resident of our community, please contact us. We will gladly schedule a personalized tour where you can see firsthand all we have to offer.
