Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse welcomes audiences into its cozy theater-restaurant hybrid with open arms to enjoy national and international comedic acts. During each performance of Pardon the Pundit’s contest, four to eight comedians mine chuckles from the rich veins of political observation, tickling funny bones with equal-opportunity send-ups of every branch and party. The Live Political Comedy Contest is a multipart audition for the group’s 2012 live cast, with the winner garnering a berth with the group and bragging rights at dinner with less accomplished clones. Shows take place in the art-deco confines of the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse, ensconcing patrons in an elegant combination theater and restaurant. Today’s deal also includes a cup of popcorn to keep appetites at bay while fulfilling laugh quotas and luring hungry pigeons into realistic urban dioramas.
