The venerable Clarendon Eleventh Street Lounge comedy open mic/showcase/nerd paradise has announced their final showcase of the year, and it is worth your time.
The Lounge Lizards showcases are usually well put together, but this Thursday, newly-crowned organizer Chris Barylick seems to have called in pretty much everyone he knows– the lineup features Will Hessler, Pete Bladel, Ahmed Huidobro, among others, and is headlined by Seaton Smith (you may know him from BYT’s Family Hemerlein nights, TEDxPennQuarter, FunnyorDie.com, and about a gajillion other places. He’s like DC’s most famous comic that hasn’t moved to New York).
It’s a good chance to catch Smith in a venue less like a theater or a club and more like your dad’s basement. If it were decorated by Prince.
But that’s not all! What with it being a season of giving and all, the Lounge Lizards have made this show a canned food drive benefiting local food pantries, so bring a canned good to karmically pay for your evening’s entertainment.
