Woolly Mammoth is thrilled to partner with Spit Dat for monthly spoken word performances starting in October 2019. All performances will be free and open to the public.
Well, folks, if ever there was a time that we needed to laugh, here it is. Fortunately, Woolly Mammoth Theatre has just the remedy with the return of the #SpitDatResidency! This first virtual open mic in our heart-healing series, Jokes On Us, will be hosted by Spit Dat's own Drew Anderson and Dwayne Lawson-Brown. And as if that weren't enough healing ha-ha for your heart, this first online edition of the Woolly Mammoth Spit Dat Residency will also be featuring comic virtuoso Ixchel, and comedian Anthony Oakes!
Ixchel: DMV-based Salvi comedienne and songwriter Ixchel aka Sara Hernàndez stays "serving delicious wry affections topped with flamboyance à la moody." She can be found on Instagram under her moniker @hypofeminine, posting cute cat videos, schooling us on pronoun etiquette, and chronicling comical misadventures of social misanthropy under such profound aliases as "Thoughtiana".
Anthony Oakes: "Making everyone laugh their faces off so we can't tell who's pretty or ugly..." Hailing from North Carolina, Anthony D. Oakes is a District of Columbia resident who is taking east coast comedy by storm. A natural comedian, Anthony has hit the ground running. His clean yet edgy, southern, intellectual, witty humor will have you reeling with laughter. Find out more about this outrageous talent at www.anthonyoakescomedian.com!
SPIT DAT is the longest-running open mic in the nation's capital. A profoundly intimate artistic and spiritual experience that has fought to remain a safe space through nearly two decades of societal change, Spit Dat combines world-class talent with a living room vibe. As much a "venue" as it is an "event," Spit Dat has won multiple awards for its contribution to the growth of generations of acclaimed international artists. But perhaps its most valued accolade lives in being renowned among its staunch community as no less than "Church."
