Lena Dunham: Your Black Friend featuring Madeline and Hellcat
Washington Improv Theater Presents - April 8, 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.”
A Hellcat show is like a really strong Dirty Shirley: sweet at first, but sour and bitter underneath. We’re playful and fun, but also sharp and cutting, and we are equally committed to the absurd and the heartfelt — because we know that life is all things at once. When you leave a Hellcat show, you’ll ask questions like, “Do these women have rabies?” “Is 4th wave feminism finally here?” “Should I start a commune with all my best girlfriends?”
Masks are required for all patrons in WIT performance spaces. WIT encourages the use of medical-grade masks (like surgical masks). Please bring your own mask.
