Root Awakening Comedy Show

Root Awakening Comedy Show

Actions and Detail Panel


The official weekly comedy show of Washington, DC's (and the Nation's) premier comedic resistance!

About this event

Join Grassroots Comedy (formerly Grassroots Comedy DC) every Sunday for a night of stand-up comedy geared towards making the world a better and more hilarious place!

Each show will feature national touring comedians and local up-and-comers alike, all working out new-ish material that's largely geared towards lefty causes that Grassroots Comedy supports through its regular fundraiser comedy showcases (climate change, racial equity, immigrant rights, women's rights, etc.). The show serves as a platform for comics to audition to perform on those shows (think of it as a progressive joke incubator of sorts), with plenty of irrelevant hilarity mixed in.

Having recently transitioned to a non-profit organization, proceeds will go towards Grassroots Comedy, and their ongoing efforts to use comedy as a vehicle for engagement, education, and support of causes in a time of need.

So grab your woke friends (maybe even your annoying overly crunchy friend Sky who thinks essential oils cure everything) and your non-woke friends who could benefit from some comedic perspective, and end your weekend right with a night of hilarity in the name of making the world a better place through laughter!
