A comedy club grows in Silver Spring! -- there are a few tix left for both shows:
“IMPROBABLE COMEDY” SHOWCASES LOCALLY-BRED COMEDIANS
APARNA NANCHERLA AND MICHAEL FOODY
JUNE 4TH in SILVER SPRING
Silver Spring – Washington-bred comedian Aparna Nancherla returns from Los Angeles to headline two June 4th shows of unprecedented local comedic strength.
Nancherla, who grew up in Northern Virginia and launched her comedy career at clubs in and around Washington, moved to Los Angeles last year to make comedy her full-time job. Her local success and decision to relocate were chronicled last year in a major feature story in the Washington Post.
The one-night performances at Vicino’s Downstairs in Silver Spring, at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., open with Washingtonian Michael Foody, an edgy young voice familiar in clubs throughout the region.
Nancherla’s Seinfeldesque observations and self-deprecation set off Foody’s more biting ruminations on politics and pop culture. As Nancherla says, “I put the ‘shun’ in professional.” And as Foody describes his comic powers, “they manipulate the forces of nature in a way that is indistinguishable from magic.”
Tickets to this inaugural Improbable Comedy event are $15 with a two-item minimum purchased from Vicino’s bar, which offers beer, wine and sangria, and a full dinner menu. Vicino’s is located at 959 Sligo Ave. in Silver Spring. The show is for patrons 21 and older.

Proceeds from the June 4th shows benefit FINCA International, the Foundation for International Community Assistance, which provides financial services to the world’s lowest-income entrepreneurs.
