Wake & Bacon


Shaw's Tavern is where the DC's brunch and comedy show happens. Courtesy of LYGO DC and friends, the once "Laugh Your Grits Off" is now "Wake & Bacon" ... but all the ingredients remain the same: Bacon, Booze, and Laughter.  Live comedy and brunch, a DC original show every Saturday from 3-5 p.m.

This week Jamel Johnson hosts Romane Walters, Adam Friedland, and Chelsea Shorte!

Register to reserve a seat at one of the top things to do in DC, brunch-down, fun time, or whatever other words you'd be impressed by (we're comedians... making you laugh is fun, marketing and search engine keywords not so much).

*Warning: Comedy shows sometimes contain naughty language and potentially offensive ideas. It is intended for a good time but please attend at your own risk!

*Parking in DC can be tough. We recommend taking the Green/Yellow line to the Shaw/Howard U metro station, a convenient 4 minute walk: North on 7th St NW, Right on T, Right on Florida Ave (you'll pass the Howard Theater on your right), and on the right off the intersection of 5th and Florida is Shaw's Tavern.

We are sorry but registration for this event is now closed.

Please contact us if you would like to know if spaces are still available.
