Underground Comedy Presents: Ahmed Bharoocha
Conan and Comedy Central veteran Ahmed Bharoocha is half Irish Catholic, half Pakistani-Indian-Burmese-Muslim, and wholly a master of punctuating striking social commentary with high-energy theatrics. In 2010 Bharoocha won the Magner’s International Comedy Festival and soon moved to Los Angeles. There he began producing weekly web shorts with the sketch trio, Dead Kevin. The viral sketch group has since been featured onTosh.0, Funny or Die, and named one of L.A. Weekly’s Comedy Acts to Watch. As a solo stand-up, Bharoocha’s festival performances include Just for Laughs Montreal, the Moontower Comedy Festival, Riot L.A., the Great American Comedy Festival and Scotland’s Glasgow International Comedy Festival. Most recently he appeared on Adam DeVine’s House Party, Viceland’s Flophouse, and was cast as a series regular on this fall’s Adult Swim series Dream Corp.
Every other week Underground Comedy will bring the best young comics from around the country to DC's Drafthouse Comedy Theater. Located at 1100 13th St NW, the entrance is on L Street Between 13th and 14th Street. It is styled after a black box arts theater and offers beer, wine, liquor, and some pre-packaged snacks in the lobby. There are no minimum purchase requirements for patrons and no table-side service.
This is a fully seated show. Seating is general admission. You must be 18 to enter.
