Live Comedy Showcase starring Dewayne White

Featuring Hedi Sandberg, PT Bratton, Noah Miller

Dead Horse Comedy Productions is bringing together some of the DMV’s top comedians for a live comedy show!

Dewayne White:
Dewayne is a D.C.-based standup comedian. He’s a combat-wounded veteran who served in the Army for 23 years. Much of his humor is drawn from his unique take on his military experience, his life as a husband and father, and the general craziness of life. He’s performed at the DC Improv, Magooby’s Joke House, Arlington Drafthouse, and many other clubs and venues.

PT Bratton:
PT is an Air Force veteran and a pastor-turned comedian. He has performed for hundreds of people at some of the top entertainment venues in the United States.

Hedi Sandberg:
Hedi is a comedian performing all over the Washington, D.C. area, from local venues in D.C. to Magooby’s Joke House in Maryland and the Richmond Funny Bone in Virginia. She has also been part of the Lady Laughs Comedy festival in Madison, WI, The Tim Northern Comedy Festival in Louisville, KY, The Rubber City Comedy Festival in Akron, OH, The West End Comedy Festival in Atlanta, GA and the Meadowlands Comedy Festival in NJ. Hedi also had the honor of hosting shows during the Charm City Comedy Festival in Baltimore, MD, and the LIT Comedy Festival in Washington, D.C.

Noah Miller:
Noah is a comedian and writer based in the Washington, D.C. area. After a career of working on boats and flying helicopters for the Coast Guard, he made the natural transition to stand-up and hasn’t looked back. In a short time, he’s performed in some of the country’s best clubs including Gotham NYC, Caroline’s on Broadway, and the DC Improv, alongside comedians such as John Oliver, Nikki Glaser, and Jeff Ross.

What does disability mean? Do you or does someone you know have a specific disability?

Guest Artist Rafael Lopez will lead elementary school students in a *virtual* program that discusses the history of disability representation on US postage stamps. From Albert Einstein to Lou Gehrig, children will learn more about the many individuals with disabilities that have been honored on a commemorative stamp, as well as the ways — both positive and negative — disabilities have been portrayed by the United States Postal Service. Participants will get to discuss with Rafael and the author of Just Ask! Be Different, Be Brave, Be You, Sonia Sotomayor, what their personal experiences with disabilities have been. Recommended for ages 6-9, but all elementary-aged children are welcome!

The Guest Artist Program at the National Postal Museum is generously supported by the TurningPoint Foundation.

Registration is required and limited for this free, virtual program. A Zoom link will be sent to participants 24 hours before the program. Closed captioning provided.
