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.
