Our Story

Bad Medicine was founded in 2013 by Elizabeth Kemp (not pictured*). In 2014, we started performing in the DC area with Dojo Comedy and the Laugh Index Theatre. Since then we have performed all over DC and the east coast including the NYC SketchfestMontreal Sketchfest, Charm City Comedy Festival, and Philly Sketchfest. We also produce local shows at The Unified Scene Theater and shoot original short films. Our films screened at the DC Shorts Film Festival and Women in Comedy Festival.

*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.
