Almost Ladies Night is an entertaining blend of comedy, live music, and special celebrity appearances, designed to be different from the ordinary club scene. This monthly event, created and hosted by actor-filmmaker Tommy Taylor Jr. and powered by Urban Comedy Flavorz promotions, features the top comedians in the country and unashamedly caters to women in the audience. The fun begins during the pre-show: Guests who arrive early enjoy drink specials, answer trivia questions for prizes, and play the Tinder Live dating game. Though optional, guests can also receive complimentary massages by Hands in Motion mobile massage services. Comedy, Taylor Jr. says, is therapeutic, so by combining laughter “with massage therapy we’re providing a unique way for our audience to combat stress and depression.” Self-described as “funny, smart, and chronically womanless,” Taylor Jr. holds an MBA from Howard University and has appeared in movies such as Die Hard 4, and television series The Wire and Veep. “I wanted to create an interactive comedy experience where the audience is entertained from the moment they step in the door,” says Taylor Jr. with a smile. March 16 at City Winery, 1350 Okie St. NE. $20-$30.
