Lee was also voted “Washington DC’s Funniest Comedian” by Washingtonian Magazine. Kevin headlined here at the Capitol Theatre last season and absolutely convulsed the patrons with loud, sustained laughter!
Originally from Portland, OR, now living in Maryland, Jim Meyer walks this world as a Comedy Highlander, and has been called the greatest force of laughter the Earth will ever know. He has been called a ray of light in a world overcome with darkness. He’s also been called Mike by the Chinese woman at the sub shop who never remembers his name.
Rahmein Mostafavi charms crowds with comic timing and charisma developed throughout two decades of live performance. He addresses social and political topics with a combination of satirical and observational comedy, leaving audiences with a greater sense of purpose, sex appeal and the occasional leg cramp. Rahmein entered the stand-up world after working as a longtime cast member of “Shear Madness,” the acclaimed Kennedy Center improv/comedy whodunit. His natural joke writing ability, combined with his acting chops, has won him rave reviews in both the Washington area and around the country.
