Congratulations to Mr. Marcus Brown for winning the DC Improv's showcase on Tuesday. Marcus crushed the nearly sold out crowd who also enjoyed John Conroy, Phil Mause, Eli Sairs, Joyce Rebar and Keith Irvin. This was easily the best showcase that the Improv has held in quite sometime, hosted by DCC4N favorite Jon Mumma. Jon was aggressive and a little angry, with a flair that people usually don't get to see. On to the guest sets. First up was previous showcase winner Hampton Yount. Always a pleasure, he closed strong on a tear-inducing bit about the Porn Awards. Then the club was treated to a very special treat when national headliner Jim Short stopped by to perform the final set of the night. It's interesting to see the difference in local up & comers compared to the highly-polished Short. (don't die before you're able to hear his joke about werewolves) So, that is the update on that shiz-nit, I'm gonna go bang my head against a tree.
