A rising comedy star, Kevin Barnett is poised to break out in a big way. He first honed his stand-up chops in New York clubs, with witty riffs on the black experience (limited Halloween costume options) and the awkward transition to adulthood (gleefully ripping into kids on Xbox Live). Since then, he's made the leap to TV, regularly appearing on MTV2's "Guy Code", writing for "The Eric Andre Show", and producing, writing and starring in the sketch series "Friends of the People". He's also gone viral on the web series "Homo Thugs", appeared in movies like "Sleepwalk With Me", and currently co-hosts "The Roundtable of Gentlemen" podcast. But this busy up-and-comer still returns to his first love: stand-up. Don't miss Barnett when he hits the stage of the Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse. [less-]

Brooks Wheelan knows what it's like to live the ups and downs of the comedy world. After snagging a spot on Comedy Central's "10 Comics to Watch" list in 2012 and becoming a cast member of "Saturday Night Live" in 2013, he saw the other side when he was fired from "SNL". But he bounced back with his recently released stand-up CD, "This is Cool, Right?", and his return to stand-up. Hailing from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Wheelan has been performing stand-up comedy since he was a teenager, eventually gaining traction in the stand-up-centric city of Los Angeles -- studying improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and writing for CollegeHumor. Now's your chance to catch him live at D.C.'s Drafthouse Comedy Theater doing what he does best -- delivering big laughs. [less-]

This powerful play at Washington D.C.'s Keegan Theatre takes you inside a shelter for women on the run in the early 1970s. Penned by "House of Cards" writer Sarah Treem, the drama transports you to a time before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act and before women had anywhere to turn in times of distress. "When We Were Young and Unafraid" introduces you to Agnes, who's turned her quiet B&B into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. To her dismay, her latest guest is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter, forcing each girl to question their destiny. And as the drums of the feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes must confront her own preconceived notions about the people she's been trying to help. [less-]
