Event description

Description

"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



Back by popular demand, and drawing inspiration from Abraham Lincoln's legendary humor and self-deprecation, President Lincoln's Cottage and The DC Improv are again partnering to present Two Faces Comedy, the first comedy series to transform Lincoln's living room into a comedy den.

This will be a series of three comedy nights, the first of which is September 27. Stay tuned for future dates. All shows begin at 7:30pm.

TICKETS

$5 per show

CASH BAR

Beer and wine will be available for $5 a drink at each show.

September 27 @ 7:30 PM

What more perfect a place to host a comedy night headlined by veterans than at the Old Soldiers' Home, where Lincoln met and laughed with dozens of Civil War soldiers? Enjoy the humorous stylings of comedians Michael Garvey (Marines), Tim Miller (Army), Kj Pettersen (Marines), and Cerrome Russell (Marines).

A bit more about the comedians:

Michael Garvey (Marines) has a made the journey from Iraq and Afghanistan, where he earned the Purple Heart, to comedy stages across the country. Since getting his start in 2015, he has turned sources of frustration into comedy gold and he performs regularly with his service dog Liberty. Michael has performed at the Obama White House and recently opened for Bob Saget.

Tim Miller's (Army) aggressive but endearing comedy style creates a show worth seeing more than once. His life as a sheltered son of Pentecostal ministers from Waco, Texas, and working at the White House (during three administrations) has made for an energetic show that combines a dynamic stage presence with an energetic delivery.

Kj Pettersen (Marines), born and raised as a cheese-totting Wisconsinite, served in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves for over 6 years and the U.S. Peace Corps for 2.5 years. She began doing stand-up with a veteran arts organization in the DC area called the Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) in 2015 and has since then performed at venues across and beyond DC. She currently runs and hosts a monthly, military-veteran focused comedy show in the DMV (@SmokinJokinDC), and continues working with ASAP, now as a lead instructor for their stand-up comedy bootcamp (www.asapasap.org).

A born and bred southern man, Cerrome Russell (Marines) brings his own brand of storytelling to the stage. He has more than a decade of experience making people laugh. Get ready for the monster from Georgia.
