vote for performance with purpose

Thank you for participating in the voting process to select the recent ASAP alumni that will be featured in Performance with Purpose: A Veterans Showcase on December 5th at The DC Improv. We are excited to highlight the performances and pieces from our veterans, service members, and military families, and we are grateful for your willingness to play a role in selecting who will take the stage. You will be given three votes for each category (stand-up comedy, storytelling, and creative writing), and can vote for one, two, or all three of the categories. For example, if you are a Comedy Bootcamp alumnus, you can choose to solely vote for Comedy Bootcamp alumni, or you can watch the storytelling performances and read the creative writing pieces and choose to submit votes for all three categories. Only ASAP participants, alumni, mentors, instructors are eligible to vote. Voting will remain open until midnight on Sunday, September 30th. If you have additional questions, please contact

To vote, please follow these steps:

  • Watch the videos and/or read the pieces from our nominees
