Ha Ha at Ri-Ra

Would-be jokesters have to get a stamp of approval from booker Curt Shackelford to perform at this quasi open-mike, set in a quiet back room of the busy bar. As a result, each week comes off like a hit list of local talent. A recent night featured Baltimore's Jason Weems, a semi-finalist in TV's "Last Comic Standing," just weeks before his headlining gig at the DC Improv. The half-price burgers and $3 Stellas only sweeten the experience.
Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
Free.
