Hey apples and oranges, last week I went to my VERY FIRST live comedy show that was not amateur night at a hipster bar. (By the way, pro tip, do not go to amateur comedy night if you do not have a strong stomach. There will be dozens of rape jokes.) The headliner was Hari Kondabolu, who is amazing in his own right, but there turned out to be an awesome opening comic as well! Elahe Izadi is a D.C.-based journalist who writes for National Journal while somehow also maintaining a comedy career.
She performs at various venues around DC including “the DC Improv, Lincoln Theater, State Theatre, and her parents’ kitchen.” She makes sense, y’all, hilarious sense. Here she is telling it like it is, please to enjoy:
