Garden of Jokes: A Veterans Comedy Show

Comedy on a roof? They said it couldn't be done. Well, they were wrong. We did it, and we have the pictures to prove it. But if you missed out, fear not - Up Top Acres and the Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) are joining forces once more to host another special Veterans Comedy Show at one of Up Top's rooftop farms. This performance will feature comedians who have graduated from ASAP's Comedy Bootcamp program, the first stand-up comedy class in the country for veterans. The event will provide a platform for veteran comedians to showcase their talents and tell their hilarious stories in front of members of the DC community. Tickets can be reserved online for $15 and at the door for $20.
