GTJ Featured Entertainer Opens at DC Improv

Former GTJ featured entertainer, scientist/comedian Adam Ruben, will be opening for Dov Davidoff at the DC Improv comedy club and restaurant this weekend.

WHEN: August 18 – 21 at 8:00 p.m., August 19-20 additional late shows at 10:30 p.m.

WHERE: 1140 Connecticut Ave N.W.

I had the pleasure of attending Adam’s one-man show, Please Don’t Beat Me Up, at the Capital Fringe Festival in July. Hilarious, insightful, and even sometimes poignant, Adam’s stand-up involves reclaiming awkward childhood and teen moments by turning them into comedy.  Likewise, Adam’s book, How to Survive Your Stupid, Stupid Decision to Go to Grad School, is unequivocally one of the funniest books I’ve ever read.  For anyone who has experienced the trials of grad school or ever felt like a nerd growing up, attending an Adam Ruben event should be a no-brainer.

We hear Dov Davidoff is pretty good, too.[1]
