All Big Hunt shows are moving to our new club Hotbed! Opening early 2022!
After seven years and thousands of shows produced at The Big Hunt, sadly the venue permanently closed during the pandemic. Over the years Underground Comedy turned The Big Hunt's satanic-themed basement into a nationally known comedy venue. The Washington Post said, "there’s always a good chance you’ll see a rising star who’s about to break out big (or one of the top talents in the District). Established comics seem to like the looseness and intimacy Joyce fosters. Michael Che worked his recent Netflix special at The Big Hunt before filming it; so did Rory Scovel. Hannibal Buress, Patton Oswalt, Judah Friedlander and Louis C.K. have all dropped in for surprise sets. That’s the magic of an Underground Comedy show: You never know who might show up, but you can guarantee it will be funny."
With Hotbed, Underground Comedy is looking to build on the success of the shows at Big Hunt. The basement will be completely dedicated to stand-up comedy and, like Big Hunt, there will be a bar upstairs to hang out at before and after the shows.
