DC Comedy Gets Respect! The Onion Gives It...


Previously this blog reported the Onion AV Club was to come to The Bomb Shelter for research for "some kind of article." All we knew was that the show was packed and John McBride gave the longest interview of his life (he gets interviewed a lot). So with bated breath we waited to see what would become of The Bomb Shelter's brush with fame. Well it came today in the form of a a sweeping, half page article (In this business, a half page article IS "sweeping") mentioning more than a few shows and more quotes from superstars Seaton Smith and Erin Jackson and even mentions this blog and our very own Mr. Jay Hastings.

We have yet to find the article online but make sure to pick a copy before next Wednesday when it forever vanishes into the ether. Hopefully this article will put a few more people into the seats and give a boost to what truly is a dynamic, talented scene that is ready for a little more exposure. Let's do this, DC!

We have the article! Click to enlarge

Thanks to Suemedha Sood for shining the light!
