"I leave it to my audience: If I had two faces, would I be wearing this one?”
- Abraham Lincoln during the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas debates after being accused of "two-faced" politics by Stephen Douglas
Drawing inspiration from Abraham Lincoln's legendary humor and self-deprecation, President Lincoln's Cottage and The DC Improv are partnering to present Two Faces Comedy, the first comedy series performed at the Cottage.
Shows are slated for August 17, September 7 and October 18. All shows begin at 7:30pm.
$5 per show
Beer and wine will be available for $5 a drink at each show.
August 17 @ 7:30 PM
Come enjoy the comedic stylings of Kasha Patel, Rahmein Mostafavi and Tok Moffat as they each humourosly recall the experience of growing up as first-generation Americans.
September 7 @ 7:30 PM
Robert Mac will perform "Plan C", his satirical take on American politics and the 2016 presidential election.
October 18 @ 7:30 PM
The ComedySportz troupe puts on a fast-paced improvisational comedy show, playing a series of games with each other and the audience. (If you've ever seen "Whose Line," that program features the short-form improv that ComedySportz specializes in.) It's not a comedy show ABOUT sports, it's the comedy show that IS a sport.
Every show is different, as ComedySportz plays new games with new audience suggestions every time. You could see a million shows and never see the same show twice.
For this special show at Lincoln's Cottage, the performers will be incorporating themes relevant to Lincoln -- such as history and Shakespeare!
This comedy series is recommended for adult audiences.
