ShawnMikael(s) in CoHi: The Summer WindCame Blowin' In
Legend has it that DC was built on a swamp, which is one of the reasons it gets so damned humid during the Summer months. But actually, DC wasn't built on a swamp: it was built on what was once an Indian burial ground. Plus, a crazy old man now lives there. And tries to "warn" people about the "ghosts" who still "haunt" it, but it's really just him in a sheet trying to scare people away so he can build his own amusement park on it. And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for you meddlin' kids
Anyway, come cool off with some cool, cool sketch and improv, specifically the breezy improv stylings of Pimento; the blow-you away thunderstorm that is Washington DC's foremost sketch troupe, Brick Penguin; and us, the icy, icy hot ShawnMikael(s).

The Space: Studio 1469 (http://studio1469.com/), located in the rear of 1469 Harvard Street, is not your normal performance space: one part artist's hideaway, one part "white-box" theater, it's a hidden gem in bustling Columbia Heights. Please note that access isn't available on Harvard Street, but by entering via the alley off 15th Street between Harvard Street and Columbia Road. Once in the alley, walk straight to the end, where you'll find the space. More information. Directions, and a map are available here: http://studio1469.com/directions.
Show up. You're all "fans." Heh-heh.
