From bit to bite, last night’s Commedia Dell Media was a mix of nerdy DC humor, self-deprecation and journo on journo crime as everyone took a jab or two. In other words, it was a good time for a good cause and after a few warm up drinks… er rounds, the crowd at the Hamilton was laughing along to Rich Edson’s spot on Cantor impression, Libby Casey actually making C-SPAN funny and Elahe Izadi rip on dating in DC. Natalie McGill ultimately took the crown (literally, the prize was a crown – cue Ms. America theme song), however both Casey and Izadi were right there behind her. If we do say so, the ladies kinda stole the show. Also, big shout out to Brandon Wetherbee for hosting with style and adding a quip or two of his own.
If you missed it, head over to Journopalooza tonight at the Black Cat.
