Heading over to the Silver City Comedy Show at Jackpot in Chinatown I had no idea what to expect. I got a call from Martin and he’s like, “Yo dude you need to come check out the show tonight in Chinatown it will be pretty dope”. With the understanding that Martin is always good with his word when it comes to finding a funny show I took him up on the offer and checked it out.
None the less once I got in the area the Jackpot was noticeably in the cut of Chinatown by the Verizon Center but right across from Urban Outfitters. As I went inside I noticed a locker theme in the far back corner of the bar where vibrant comedians would laugh, shout, and blurt out anything they believe would make someone in the audience laugh. All in all, it was a great show with a diverse group of comedians telling jokes about hating their job, the struggles of a young comedian, and how terrible the Washington football team always seems to be.
With the show being hosted by none other than our Martin Amini and sound provided by the legendary DJ Bo it was on point from beginning til end. One comedian slammed the venue locker doors and says, “Man I feel like I’m on a set for Save by the Bell or some shit”! Shortly, after him another comic comes on stage and add’s porn to her repertoire to capture the crowds attention on sharing her thoughts on how to give the best blow jobs and how she sucks at em’, pun intended. Towards the end of the show continued to get raunchier as a Jamel Johnson, shouted at a lady in the audience and said to her “You looked like an Etsy version of Dragon Ball Z”. The crowd laughed hysterically and the place became electrified. Once that joke was landed I knew my trip to the Jackpot was well worth it, at least for the free popcorn and awesome drinks.
Amongst the many Comedians in attendance you could find the Martin Amini, Rallo Boykins, Rob Gordon, Armon Tate, Jamel Johnson and more. There were even a few newcomers that were excited to try to flex their skills on the mic. Overall I’m looking forward to the next show and will be sure to let you guys know when it’ll be taking place.
