You know what’s a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Laughing your ass off. If you still haven’t made Valentine’s Day plans and you’re looking to get out of the city to avoid all the amateurs clogging the restaurants, Riverboat on the Potomac is doing a Valentine’s Day dinner cruise featuring Matt Kazam and Seaton Smith. Okay, I know, riverboat food usually sucks, but you’ll be laughing so hard you won’t have time to eat anyway. Matt Kazam is notable for having been on Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, XM Comedy, and for teaching the DC Improv’s standup comedy classes (which I highly recommend). Seaton Smith features regularly at the Improv, and is notable for being able to say pretty much anything and make it funny. I swear, ask him to say “aluminum siding,” and he will find a way to make you laugh while he does it.
Also coming up this month, Eli Sairs and the Official Comedian of We Love DC Commenters, Aparna Nancherla, will be appearing with Maria Bamford at the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse on February 27th and 28th (corrected from earlier version). What’s that? Two female comics on the bill in the same night? Bless you, Drafthouse comedy bookers.
