The Line-up

Fall in Love with Uncle Gorgeous
Join Uncle Gorgeous on a heartwarming journey through the whimsical world of real-life rom-com moments! We’ll turn to you, our beloved audience, to share a moment from your life that could have been straight out of a romantic comedy. Picture it: the meet-cute, the awkward dance of attraction, or the serendipitous encounter that could rival any Hollywood script. Through a brief interview, we’ll capture the essence of these enchanting tales. Then, buckle up for a 25-minute rollercoaster ride of laughter, love, and unexpected twists as we bring these scenes to life. Our performers will become your favorite fun uncles, weaving together an unscripted comedy set filled with nostalgia, romance, and genuine joy. Get ready to revel in the timeless hilarity of love, laughter, and the delightful chaos of life’s romantic misadventures!

The Broken Bones: Injury into Cinema
The Broken Bones presents ‘Injury Into Cinema’. We’ve all been hurt, perhaps by a hidden patch of ice, a sick collision while scoring the winning goal, or a very public breakup at your 28th birthday party. The Broken Bones will interview an audience member about an injury—be it physical, emotional, or other—and we will all heal together through comedy and your favorite genre. Injured on a date? A Romcom show! During college? Teen film! At a hounted house? Horror time! The cast has some of DC’s funniest improvisers who have been featured by Comedy Central, The Washington Post, NPR, aas well as comedy festivals around the US and Europe.
Cast: Erick Acuña, Neil Baron, Geoff Corey, Darnell Eaton, Eva Lewis, Kristina Martinez, Kelsey Peters

So forget the reruns and join us before we go into syndication!
