Comedy at the Kennedy Center: Alex Edelman’s first show Millennial, about very traumatic stock photos and young people, won the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997. The follow-up, Everything Handed to You, about identity and the availability of outlets in airports, was even more acclaimed, selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival.

Free general admission tickets--up to two per person—will be distributed in the States Gallery, beginning at 5 p.m.

Tonight's show will not be archived or streamed!
