What's Up? Weekend 4/5/2018

Apr 05, 2018 04:00PM ● By Brian Saucedo
Max Rosenblum has always been interested in comedy, but it wasn’t until after college that he decided to pursue a comedy career. Originally from Los Angeles, Rosenblum moved to Washington, D.C., after graduation. A dislike for a job led Rosenblum to seek comfort in a new creative way to express himself. He began writing jokes as a hobby, but soon fell in love with performing live.

Rosenblum started performing stand-up at D.C. area bars and hasn’t stopped since. He’s spent the last six years traveling across the country and entertaining audiences with his self-deprecating humor. Though he still works his day job, he hopes to one day pursue a career in comedy full-time. He’s performed at venues and festivals big and small, including the Kennedy Center, 
Hollywood Laugh Factory, Cleveland Comedy Festival, and Baltimore’s Artscape Festival.
Max Rosenblum will be performing live at the Avalon Theatre on Friday, April 13th at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and available here. If you’re looking to enjoy a laugh-filled evening, this is a show you don’t want to miss!
