“So in honor (or in memoriam) of April Fools’ Day, Arts Desk asked some local comedians to look back at some of the most memorable pranks that have duped them or that they’ve played on people. They run the gamut from harmless to outright mean, but none of them involve a status update or a Photoshopped ultrasound.”

“On this amazing portion of the Steele-A-Real, the King Kneival goes into Beast Mode with one of his new favorite comics on the DC scene, all the way from Reno, NV, Alyssa Cowan!!!! The two talk about the Three R’s: Writing, Reno, and Wrasslin’!!!! Other engaging shit is most certainly addressed, but this here blurb’s a primer. Peep the entire episode, then just chiiillllll…..”

“Between roasting the city’s sacred (and not-so-sacred) cows, reveling in terrible music transgressions, and skewering established religion, D.C.’s comedians gave the city a lot to laugh about in 2014. This year, they pushed the envelope by expanding on preconceived notions of what good comedy can be and what public spaces can give it a good home.

Arts Desk asked some of the city’s funniest comedians (and for good measure, me) what made them laugh this year. Here’s what cracked up the people that cracked you up in 2014.”
