And, in the same timeslot, The Monthly Junk has their last show before Sarah Adams gives birth to a human being.

HELP US WELCOME NEWBIES!
You've probably noticed the bar and shows have been pretty busy the last two months. That's great! More people interested in comedy and supporting local acts! As someone who knows a lot about this place, if you see confused customers who might be here for the first time, we'd love your help guiding them to their show (or the bathrooms... or the bar... or just not down the performer hallway). Help us make them feel welcome in our (comedy) house!
Happy Valentine's Day! For a present, I got you a bunch of announcements:
Some Housekeeping (Literally)
From classrooms, to the training center lounge, to greenrooms - we've got a lot of shared spaces at DCH that get a ton of traffic throughout the week. Please help us keep these spaces inviting and tidy by making sure furniture is put back where you found it (including couches in the Training Center) and trash makes it into trash cans (especially food items).
Fest Badges are on Sale
If you know you're going to be living it up at the 2018 Dallas Comedy Festival (i.e. attending more than one night of shows), you might want to get yourself a Fest Badge. It guarantees you admission into shows (including headliners Sasheer Zamata and 3Peat), as well as drink tickets, swag, and priority seating. Qe have a limited number of badges we can sell, and we're already halfway sold-out of them! Learn more and purchase a badge here. NOTE: DCH Student and Performer badges do not get into shows for free during the festival. There are also no comps during the festival for performers.
Make DCH a Great Place
If you've ever thought, "wow. I like being up at DCH. It's a fun place to be," you're right! Help us make it fun for everyone by being a DCH Night Intern! Night interns are the first impression of DCH for ticket holders and a crucial part of what makes DCH so special. You see them all the time in their sweet black DCH shirts, taking tickets and expertly disposing of trash in the dumpster. You probably look up to them, and now you can BE ONE! Applications for Term 2 are due this Thursday. Click here to learn more and apply.
Email Photos to Ashley Bright
If you've got cool pics of DCH shows and/or shenanigans, e-mail them to Ashley Bright (Ashley@dallascomedyhouse.com) to be shared with the world via the DCH social medias.
Sketch Dash has a New Fearless Leader
Sketch Dash is officially produced by Madison Frihart now. Thank you, Jason Hensel, for starting this really neat show and getting it off the ground. Learn more about Sketch Dash (and other performance opportunities) by clicking here.
Beth at the Bar with Some Super Specials
We got iced coffee now! We got Yoohoo! We got so many tasty drink specials up at the DCH bar that you've gotta try! Cozy on up to the bar tonight and enjoy StuPer* discounts with your ID (like half off all food and happy hour drink prices all night long).
*GENIUS Student/Performer shorthand that WILL catch on.
2018 Fest Badges on Sale at Noon!
The 2018 DCF headliners will be announced today at noon on the Dallas Comedy Festival Facebook Page. And, at the same exact time, Fest Badges will go on sale!

Level 1 Improv Jam: TUESDAY!!
What better way to spend the day before Valentine's than getting up on stage and making things up with a hundred of your favorite strangers? Everyone is encouraged to come out to the Level 1 Jam at 8 (get there early to mix and mingle), ESPECIALLY new improv students.
Be an Intern!
From taking tickets at the door to keeping the training center clean and tidy, interns make DCH a better place to be. Learn more and apply for Term 2 by clicking here. In exchange for your hard work, you get your tuition waived for your next class!
Let's Get Busy on Saturday!
The Let's Get Busy Tonight cast has a show this Saturday at 8PM. The all LGBTQ+ troupe puts on a full hour of comedy and it's a super fun good time.
Last Chance to Sign-up for Tim Marks' Workshop!
Tim Marks, founder of the Kick Comedy Theater in Kansas City and the KC Improv Training Center, is teaching an improv workshop at DCH this Sunday, 10:45-12:45. It's called "Let's Not Fight" and I've heard GREAT things, including this testimonial:
Tiny Menus for Tiny Humans!
Beth at the bar made the cutest little menus for kids! They're available during the Family Friendly show for our younger patrons. Bring your kids/nephews/nieces/grandkids to the Family Friendly Show (Saturdays at 6) and steal a piece of their little quesadillas! In fact, come out this Saturday for the "My Funny Valentine" pre-show activity. We're makin' Valentines, y'all!
