Capital Laughs is a group of comedians who want to create something fun and new for the DC Arts scene. We have a lot of comedians who host, produce, promote, and perform at our shows.
We currently produce free weekly shows every night of the week and regular all-star showcases. Get away from the kids, your school work, and America’s politics and join us for laughs whenever we fit into your schedule. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you’ll be entered to win free tickets to a showcase.
All shows are 21+ unless otherwise specified. 18+ if accompanied by a parent or guardian on a venue by venue basis. All shows have one flight of stairs. Filming and photography is explicitly forbidden without written permission by the comic being filmed and a producer of the show.
BUT SERIOUSLY, i've been to local comedy shows before... they suck. not our shows:

"I really enjoy Capital Laughs comedy shows! I've been to a bunch of them! Its good to go my girlfriends, good for a date, with work friends, I've even brought my mom! The comics are always funny, the show is well ran, shows are free and has good drink specials."
"What an amazing and great show. I'm so glad I took a date here. Such a great way to support local arts and seem indy and cool. lol. I'm bringing my coworkers (well the cool ones) next time. Deffly recommend."
"The Tuesday show at Bier Baron is awesome. It's at this old historic hotel near Dupont, and they have an upstairs show room above the downstairs bar. The bar has a crazy good selection of beers, and they had some really awesome $2 beer specials. The food is on point too. The show was advertised as an open mic, but these guys were good. There were probably 15 comics, and I laughed at 13 of them--not bad for a free show. I'll come back."
"Stopped in for a free comedy show with Capital Laughs in Adams Morgan - and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the comedians were. Good beers on draft and something different for me and my girlfriend to do. Would totally go back to another show." "Caught a great show at Town Tavern when I was stopping into DC for a night. Norman Q provided a brilliant set. As a fellow Brit, I was surprised at quite how well received the comedy was..."
