Sooo funny!!!

LOVED it! Wish they would post up more deals.

I had a super wonderful time…good crowd…good comedians…decent
venue…I’ll be back for more!

I just had a little difficult finding parking near the place other than that everything else was great!

It was pretty damn awesome. Great weekday date.

A good time and a great laugh. The atmosphere was laid back and the comedians were authentic. A great opportunity to experience talented emerging comedians while interacting with new people.

My review would be a 7/7. The show was awesome and probably the most fun I had while in DC. I definitely plan on coming again next time I’m in town.

@AleAleCat: Laughed our faces off & walked away with hangers in our mouths from @LYGODC comedians at the Codmother last night with @ChellyPows #spicy

@ChellyPows: probably too much fun for a wednesday night but whatever i had a blast @AleAleCat @LYGODC #beardedman
