A Washington DC Sketch Comedy Troupe


Bad Medicine was founded in 2013 by Elizabeth Kemp (not pictured*). In 2014, we started performing in the DC area with Dojo Comedy and Laugh Index Theatre. Since then we have performed in the DC Fringe Festival, Charm City Comedy Festival in Baltimore, Philly Sketchfest, Montreal Sketchfest and NYC Sketchfest. We also produce our own local comedy shows and shoot short comedy videos. In 2015, one of these videos screened at DC Shorts.

*Elizabeth is not pictured for strategic reasons. Specifically, her mother astutely pointed out, “her hair is garishly copper and she looks ruddy.” It’s true, Elizabeth. Pull yourself together.
