Black(out) Friday Weekend Improv Tournament

  • Dojo Comedy 3503 Georgia Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20010 United States (map)

Welcome to the first annual Black(out) Friday Weekend Improv Tournament!

What better way to celebrate our country than a democratic comedy vote, so sleep off your turkey (or tryptophan-laced tofurkey) and get out of the house to check out an improv tournament! Assembled teams of three improvisers will compete for your love, adoration, laughs, and votes, as well as a cash purse. Bring the family (or at least the ones who won't get offended at a comedy show) and come on down to Dojo ready to laugh and vote.

This year, we have six teams competing. Here's a breakdown of the bracket:

Friday 8PM - First Wave - All six teams compete, each audience member gets three votes

Friday 9:30PM - Second Wave - All six teams compete, each audience member gets three votes.

Saturday 8PM - Semifinals - The top four teams from the previous night based on audience vote play each other, audience gets one vote per match.

Saturday 9:30PM - Championship - The top two teams face off for honor, glory, cash, and a little fun.
