“For this show we’ll, again, be taking every precaution,” said comedian Jack Coleman, who runs Capital Laughs, in an email. “Currently, Virginia allows for outdoor gatherings of up to 250 people (or half capacity), so we’re limiting tickets to 50 — well below Virginia rules.”
Masks are required to attend, and customers will have their temperatures taken at the door.
“Nationally, stand-up has been destroyed,” Coleman said. “These shows won’t fix that, but we hope by giving this a shot in a responsible way we can help keep comics engaged and writing (and tbh sane) and audience members laughing (and tbh sane as well).”
