Spotlight: Mo Amer is going places: His one-hour Netflix special, "The Vagabond," debuted in 2018, filled with observational comedy, political satire, and tons of material about his experiences as an Arab-American. He made his DC Improv debut in the summer of 2019, selling out the club for the entire weekend. He came back in the fall of 2019 for the Mark Twain Prize festivities, honoring his buddy and mentor, Dave Chappelle. Dave calls Mo "hilarious, thought-provoking and inspiring" -- see him on our stage and we think you'll agree.

Featuring: Nataly Aukar and Danish Maqbool
