I have watched SpeakEasy DC grow from a local unstructured open mike format to what it has become.....a premier event with educators and tutors to provide the public with a rare opportunity to tell your story with professional guidance. Any SpeakEasy DC event is professional, intersting, mostly humorous and the best bargain in town for a night out. Can't wait for the next show.
