The Beltway Comedy Guide proudly pays tribute to Washington, DC. This is a place that has given birth to some of the best comedy for years through the politicians that work here. It's also given birth to some of the greatest comedians. In the world of nature vs. nurture, there's something in the genes of the people who come to DC that gives birth to funny kids.
Born in DC were...
Stephen Colbert - starting with his success at the Second City in Chicago, he proceeded to take the Daily Show by storm, turned the world upside down with the irony of the Colbert Report, and now works late night for CBS.
Charles Fleischer - the voice of Roger Rabbit, his comedy is always out on the edge, and sometimes over it!
Michael Winslow - famous from the Police Academy movies, his vocal talents continue to amaze
Bill Nye - who doesn't know the Science Guy?
I'm sure this trend will continue and we'll get far more comedy from DC.
