The Howard Theatre (620 T St., N.W.) hosts “That B*&@! Better Be Funny,” a comedy concert starring D.C.-based stand-up comedian Sampson on Tuesday night. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30.
Sampson is the first black, openly gay comedian to headline The Howard. His monologues address the struggles he faced as a black gay youth, including abuse, homelessness, religious-based homophobia and domestic violence. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will benefit Casa Ruby (2822 Georgia Ave., N.W.), a multicultural drop-in center for the D.C.’s LGBT community.
