2016 marks the ninth annual Bridgetown Comedy Festival and, despite it being 100 degrees on Sunday, I am ready to laugh! The 5-day gathering of national and local comedians is always a lot of fun. Festival wristbands can be purchased or you can buy tickets to individual shows. Tomorrow (Thursday) will have a show at Revolution Hall (the revamped Washington High, pictured) featuring Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney.
The wristband is pricey so a neat way to experience the festival on a budget is popping into the $5 open mic at Analog Lounge. Various comedians pop in and do surprise sets every night of the festival.
