About Us

As seen in The Washington Post, Grassroots Comedy DC (GCDC) is run by comics that are passionate about two things: comedy and making the world a better place. We (along with the majority of Americans by a margin of 2.7 million, apparently) disagree with the Trump administration’s agenda on essentially all counts, and believe that we can do better (not “we” as in us personally- definitely not that! More “we” as in Americans generally).

GCDC currently runs monthly stand-up comedy shows benefitting great causes that are suffering under the administration’s policies, showing everyone a great time while raising a few bucks for groups such as Planned Parenthood, La Clinica Del Pueblo and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network. We’ve raised more than $15,000 since January 2017.

We were founded by local comedians Matt Dundas and Chris Blackwood, and we like to say we’re “making humans laugh while improving humanity.”

Catch us on the first Saturday of every month in 2018 at the Bier Baron Tavern near Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. We’ll be the ones having fun in the face of certain disaster.
