  1. One Night Only in The Comedy Lounge! Hosted by Jason Weems "Washington has been the home of a number of very good comics and a few great ones (Wanda Sykes, Dave Chappelle, Lewis Black, Martin Lawrence). Erin Jackson could be next in line." -- The Washington Post Armed with a megawatt smile and a very unique perspective, Erin Jackson is poised to take the world of comedy by storm! In fact, she'd probably be well on her way to superstardom by now if her friends and family hadn't spent so many years tearing down her dreams and stealing her joy. Since making a name for herself in the comedy clubs of Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD, Erin has garnered national attention with performances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Comedy Central's Live at Gotham. She was a semifinalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing 6, a finalist in NBC's Stand-Up for Diversity Initiative, and has made several appearances on The Bob and Tom Show. Erin is currently peddling her comedic wares at venues all around the country, and while she's in no rush to achieve celebrity status, she is looking forward to the day when she becomes famous enough to move to Hollywood, buy a mansion and marry a White woman – the ultimate symbol of success for Black celebrities. Featuring Rob Maher - Rob started his comedy career in Northern Virginia. He quickly became the greatest comedian of all time. It wasn't long before his humor was curing cancer and feeding the homeless. Rob has worked with Charlie Murphy, Lewis Black, Pablo Franciso and Frank Caliendo. He can also be heard regularly on Baltimore's 98 Rock. www.dcimprov.com
