By this point in the week, you either have to laugh or go insane so we suggest laughter. Join DC Brau downstairs in the main room at the DC Improv for our 2nd annual Hopped Up Comedy night featuring Sean Patton (Maron, Inside Amy Schumer, Comedy Central Presents and This is Not Happening). But wait there’s more! The evening will include a contest to find DC’s best drinking story. If you think you have a great drinking story (or a mediocre story with great delivery), submit a one-paragraph version of the story BEFORE MIDNIGHT ON SEPTEMBER 7 to email@example.com. The top five submissions will each get a six-minute set during the DCBW event to tell their story for a chance to win some great swag! Tickets to Hopped Up Comedy ($15 + 2 item minimum) and full details about The Drinking Story Contest are available at www.dcimprov.com/home/hopped-up.html.
