If you’ve decided to stay in the District for spring break or are waiting until after the weekend to skip town, you can still snag tickets to see comedian Ali Wong, hip hop group Migos and a weekend-long film festival.
Comedy show at Warner Theatre
Ali Wong, the comedian and writer behind the ABC television show “Fresh Off the Boat,” will be performing at the historic Warner Theatre. Wong is famous for her blunt comedy about her sexual experiences, Asian heritage and pregnancy, which she showed off most famously on her Netflix comedy special “Baby Cobra” that she filmed while seven months pregnant. Due to popular demand, there will be two shows, one at 7 p.m. and another at 9:30 p.m., so you have no excuse to miss this laugh-out-loud funny comedian.

This festival highlights historical films and is open to anyone – from experts to casual moviegoers. Tickets are required for each individual event, but are free on the museum’s website. The festival begins Thursday and spans the entire weekend. Saturday’s events, featuring a panel about women in filmmaking and an advanced screening of Edgar Allan Poe’s Buried Alive, are sure to be riveting for all movie buffs.
