Stand-up Comedy | Saturday, Oct 1, 2016 | 8:30 PM | $15-25
Comedy tonight! Expect the unexpected…and the hilarious. District Comedy spotlights some of the best local talent in DC’s burgeoning comedy scene. Urban edginess takes a field trip to the ‘burbs, and you are invited to come and laugh locally. Saturday’s performance includes comedians; Tok Moffat, Rob Maher and Daylon Morrison.
Rob Maher is a regional winner of Comedy Central’s Up Next Competition. He is a favorite performer at the DC Improv and at Funny Bone’s all the over the country and can be seen this fall on Kevin Hart’s new Comedy Central show, Hart of the City. Rob’s also had the fortunate opportunity to go overseas and perform for our troops. He’s performed in 17 countries including Afghanistan, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Italy and Egypt.
Hailing from South Africa, Tok is not your stereotypical African. Growing up in the suburbs of Washington, DC, attending Catholic schools and working with extremely anti-social engineers, in 2012 he was driven to pursue his passion of making people laugh. Tok uses his comedic style of being witty, introspective and relatable to his experiences growing up as the “weird” foreign kid, and sounding like Carlton Banks among other challenges with fitting in to stand-up. Tok is a regular at the DC Improv and Magooby’s Joke House, and runs a weekly comedy showcase featuring local and national acts.

He has been molding his comedic style for five years and has opened for the likes of Robert Kelly, Darrell Hammond, Tom Green, Jon Lovitz, and many more.
