Scovel comes to Relapse Theatre Mon., Mar. 19-Sat., Mar. 24.
 

Far away from the formulaic stand-up that dominated the ’80s comedy boom, alternative comedy bred a class of inventive comedians who relish in experimenting with the medium. Possibly no comedian best embodies that vibe more than Rory Scovel. No two Scovel shows are exactly alike, making him one of the most unpredictable and exciting comedians to see live. Scovel, who recorded his second special for Netflix, Rory Scovel Tries Stand-Up For the First Time, at Atlanta’s Relapse Theatre, returns to the A for a full week of comedy. True to Scovel’s form, each show will build off of the last, starting with absolutely no prepared material on day one. You literally have seen nothing quite like this. 21+. $7. 8 p.m. Mon., Mar. 19-Sat., Mar. 24. Relapse Theatre, 380 14th St. N.W. 404-464-5894. www.relapsecomedy.com.
