Lena Dunham: Your Black Friend featuring Madeline and Baggage Claim
Washington Improv Theater - April 15, 2023
Come out to 14th Street where WIT's unpredictable improv comedians turn an audience suggestion into a never-before-seen comedy show.
Lena Dunham: Your Black Friend The black members from their own improv troupes join forces and transform your conversations with your Black friends into art.
Madeline begins her performances with a tailored, interactive moment with you, the audience, and ascends to a higher place of laughter—complete with the manic-moxie of a first date, the flirtiness of a spontaneous 1:1 with your work crush, and the worthiness of a life filled with love. Whether you’re looking for naughty, nice, or niche, you’ll be spellbound by one of her shows—which have been called “fun,” “hilarious,” “a tad horny for my taste,” and “completely inappropriate for people who aren’t fun.”
Baggage Claim is an all Black indie troupe here to unpack your emotional baggage in front of a live audience. Tell us about a time someone wronged you, and we will break it down scene by scene until all you can do is laugh about it. Cast: Samiyyah Ali, Precious Jenkins, Namakau Ombaba, Clyde Thompson, Eddison Wilkinson
