Comedy Night starring Cerrome Russell

Fri, Jan 6, 2023, 8:00 PM EST

The Electric Palm Restaurant 12745 Sea Ray Lane Woodbridge, VA 22192 United States


About the Event

Come see some of the DMV's hottest comedians in the awesome water-front setting of The Electric Palm!


Cerrome Russell (Headliner)-Cerrome Hails from Sumter County, Georgia and got his comedy start many years ago while serving in the United States Marine Corps. He's since traveled the world, appeared on TV and brings his comedy stylings to you regularly in the DMV area. Cerome is a regular the DC Improv, and has won the Comedy Kumite on several occasions!!!


Dewayne White (MC)-Dewayne is a DC-based standup comedian and a combat-wounded Army veteran who served in the Army for 23 years. He has worked alongside amazing comedians like Josh Blue, Sal Vulcano, Mark Normand, Tony Woods and many others. Dewayne was selected as Best of the Fest at the 2022 Plano Comedy festival, was a finalist in 2019’s “Last DC Comic Standing,” 2021’s Magooby’s Joke House Comedian of the Year, and was a semi-finalist in the Last Comix Standing Competition at The Mohegan Sun Casino.


Britanny Hunter-Brittany is a DC-based comic and storyteller. Before moving to DC, she grew up Mormon in Provo, Utah in a family with ten kids. Much to her siblings' dismay, she spent most of her childhood forcing them to watch her perform standup and original musical numbers in their living room. Brittany’s dark sense of humor celebrates the choice to laugh in a world with so much to cry about. She whole-heartedly believes that when we laugh we heal, and there is nothing better than being in a room full of people healing together. Brittany has performed with John Cleese in Las Vegas and Dave Smith from the popular Legions of Skanks podcast.


Adam Freesman is a staple of the Baltimore comedy scene. He was a finalist in 2021's comedian of the year contest at Magooby's Joke House, and continues to wow audiences with his hilarious take on the world (and his hair).


Tre Solo-A newcomer to the DC scene, Tre came up in the comedy scene of Atlanta. He's worked some of the biggest names in comedy, and will have you laughing from the moment he takes the stage.


Zak Haines-Originally from upstate NY, Zakary has been working the DC scene for the past year. He's performed on the Best New Comics showcase and adds a hint of charm to his storytelling and observational comedy to serve up some amazing laughs!!!
