Pink Friday at Chesters (via Twitter:Eryca Nolan)Shirlington’s revived pool hall will highlight female comedians in a showcase event shortly after the new year.

Chester’s Billiards Bar & Grill at 2620 S. Shirlington Road is hosting the first Pink Friday Comedy Showcase on Jan. 22.

The showcase is advertised as a “Ladies First” comedy series at the restaurant and pool hall, which opened this fall in the former home of Lucy’s ARL, another pool hall that closed in 2013.

As the name suggests, the show is produced by women and will feature up-and-coming female comics in the greater metro area.

Hosted by D.C. Improv and Broadway Comedy Club alums Eryca Nolan and Alexx Starr, the lineup currently includes three comedians and additional, unnamed guest performers. However, the lineup is subject to change.

Tickets are available online for $10 (not including fees), but the first 25 people to reserve tickets will get them free.

On show night, doors will open at 8 p.m. and the show will start around 8:30.
