Night 2: Two Faces Comedy Series at President Lincoln's Cottage
"I leave it to my audience: If I had two faces, would I be wearing this one?” - Abraham Lincoln during the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas debates after being accused of "two-faced" politics by Stephen Douglas Back by popular demand, and drawing inspiration from Abraham Lincoln's legendary humor and self-deprecation, President Lincoln's Cottage and The DC Improv are again partnering to present Two Faces Comedy, the first comedy series to transform Lincoln's living room into a comedy den. The theme for the October night is mental health, based on Lincoln's own dealings with depression. Each of our performers will incorporate that theme into their sets, however they choose. Save the date for our third and final night, November 14. TICKETS $5 per person CASH BAR Beer and wine will be available for $5 a drink at each show. More about the comedians: John F.
