Underground Comedy Presents: Drew Michael
Drew broke out last year with his self-titled, one-hour special on HBO (Drew Michael), released to widespread critical acclaim. Its radical approach in both format and content led The New York times to exalt it as “thrillingly subversive,” while GQ raved that Drew “represents the past and future of stand-up comedy.” The special earned a prestigious Writers Guild Award nomination, the only stand-up special to do so last year.
Drew has also released a half-hour special on Comedy Central (The Half Hour) as well as two full-length live albums (Funny to Death, Lovely), both of which debuted at #1 on the iTunes charts. He wrote for Saturday Night Live and guest-starred in an episode of The Carmichael Show.
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.
